    Hey all,

    This is the 2nd time in a week that I have ran across one of the GI No Name 1911. This one was the CCO in stainless. Boy those pistols look great. I knew of GI only from them making an upper or an entire 1911 chambered in 50GI. I wasn't aware they were a full on custom house churning out top notch 1911's.

    So, if you all don't mind, how about catching me up a bit with some pics and some thoughts about their product and work.

    Lastly, how do they stand against their competition? Are they full house custom, semi custom or what? I guess it would help to figure out where they fit before ranking them...

    I certainly wouldn't mind owning a couple....

    Thanks for the help.

    Great Company. I would rate them as a Semi Custom shop. They churn out 1911's at a good rate, although they do take their time to make sure they come out right. As far as ranking goes, I would put them up their with Wilson Combat. I guarantee guarantee that you will have more than enough pictures once a few read this post.

    I've got a full custom build by a RRA Pistolsmith.
    The quality of my GI No Name is on par if not better!

    The GI will easily compare head to head with Wilson, Baer & Brown!

    Accurate, reliable, and durable.
    Excellent fit and finish.
    Great customer service. Alex and his team always make themselves available to answer questions or address concerns.
    I chose my NN over a CQB Elite, after shooting both.
    Really nice weapon in every way - at the top of my list.

    No personal experience shooting one...but everything that I have read has been A+...looking at them confirms what I have read.

    Would love to get a NN as my next gun...
