    Try Dave Helton www.dvsmallarms.com He has done a couple BT's for me. Very nice work and decent turn arounds. I would call him to see what his backlog is right now.

    Yeah, I'm waiting to get a Springfield back from Dave Helton... turn around should be about 2 to 3 weeks.

    Agreed. I talked to DH the other day about bobtailing something. VERY affordable and seems to do nice work.

    I was lurking on his site a few days ago and saw your .38 Super he did. Very nice build. How is it compared to some of the other higher-end 1911s you've got?

    He does nice work, but that pistol is still a S80 Colt.....It is nice, but it is not a semi-custom pistol. It is just a Colt.... :)

    When I had Dave do this one for me, his back log was not very long. This gun only took about 3 weeks. It was a stock stainless Pro Carry .
