    The work looks amazing but no double stack 1911s for me. I just don't like they way they feel in my hands.

    Got a link? That's a pretty sweet looking build, just curious what he wants for it.

    But my money would be on Hilton's gun running much better and for much longer. I respect his theory on 1911 durability and reliability and would love to have a gun built by him one day. Please don't take my remars as a knock on the Infinity, I would just prefer and have greater faith in one of Hilton's guns. I know Infinity makes fine 1911's. That being said, I would never own a high cap 1911 for anything other than gaming.

    The fact that he said it's the only hi-cap gun he's ever built and said that he would buy it back should tell you something.

    What's up with the trigger guard? It looks like plastic, and has a seam too.

    It is polymer.

    It has a modular frame.

    I don't know. I'd put Infinity up against anybody.

    I think they make the best double stacks in the world.

    Infinity makes really nice guns, but I'd take a Yam built custom over one any day of the week. There's a lot of detail in that gun for a doublestack.

    I'm no 1911 expert, but I've seen GT'ers do a better job stippling at home. I don't like that gun one bit.

    No doubt they make good double stacks. The problem is, I am not a big "gamer," and I don't think a double stack 1911 in any form is a suitable hard use duty gun. The magazines tend to be less than durable when subjected to hard use environments and overall require more upkeep than a single stack traditional design.

    Have you seen an STI or SV wide body magazine?? While they sometimes require tuning at first, they are much thicker than most any other magazine material and are plenty durable. As well, I have (real) Caspian magazines that have been dropped on concrete hundreds of time and still run like new.
