    Well, I sent my SA 1911 loaded off to dvsmallarms, and Dave took care of it. It came back 10x better IMO. I'm really digging the matte bead finish and the bobtail. :supergrin:

    A have a couple 1911's from Dave. He does nice work for reasonable prices and fairly quick turnaround compared to many others.

    It looks good but you need to take some Hi-res pictures for us to really appreciate the finish. :whistling:

    I met Dave years ago when he was just starting into dedicated 1911 stuff and transitioning away from general gunsmithing.

    He did up my beater Enfield top-break for me, dura coated and 11 degree crown.
    He's a nice guy to deal with.


    (warning: NOT a 1911)

    Very nice and congrats!

    How much did the bobtail job cost if you don't mind me asking?

    I had a few things done so it was like a combo discount price of $165, but if you were to get the bobtail done alone, it's slightly more I believe.
