    What about Bob Miller?

    What do you guys know and/or think of his work?
    Looking at picking up lightly worked Springfield GI that he as tweaked a bit.

    His work looks very good to me but I've never seen one in person.

    Ive seen a couple in person and they were both very nice!

    He isn't taking any work now so he can finish his schooling though.

    I'd be happy with a pistol from his bench.

    Everything I saw from him looked awesome. Him and Dave Erickson.

    I know the gun you are talking about. Pretty good price. His work looks to be top notch.

    If it is the guy that runs Miller Custom , his work is VERY nice. I almost bought a 9mm commander he built before I had my custom Guardian built. The only reason I did not buy it is because there were a couple of things I would have had to change on it and the asking price was already more than I paid for the Guardian built the way I wanted it .

    If you go to his "my work II" page, the commander I was looking at buying looks just like the one on his site that is about half way down the list. The one with the ball cuts on the top of the slide. It was very nice and shot fantastically. I did not like the fiber optic sight for a CCW and I am also not a fan of thin grips.

    I dig his style. Very clean. No frills, just all business. Seems pretty affordable too.
