It is getting to be really hard to find someone to work on 1911s...like really work on them, not just cutting holes in slides and swapping drop in parts like glock guys consider to be gunsmithing
A while back I e-mailed EGW since I heard they would do weld work. They discontinued custom services but recommended Jim at Innovative Custom Guns, so I wrote him. Super nice guy, friendly and knowledgeable. He welded a Novac sight cut and installed a wilson adjustable, welded a grip radius and fit an ed brown grip safety, installed a kart barrel just to name a few of things I ordered on a Springfield operator. Absolutely cannot tell it was welded or recut.
I had picked up the operator dirt cheap as it had been badly abused and had planned to do the same by running it hard at courses.
It is now the jewel of my collection...accuracy, fit and looks beats out Springfield custom shop, Wilson and an original Caspian frame delta 1911. It now resides in a special box and designated to be the only pistol I grab if I can only take one...its a work of art. He did the work about 2 years ago.
Unfortunately now I need to find another beater..like seriously, his work is so good it is making me buy another pistol to trash at courses.
He has experience working on hi-cap. I have no doubt he will do you right. He isn't the fastest or cheapest but you get more than you pay for. I am about to contact him fot a MEUSOC build.
-sorry, just realized the op was a year old
