I want to get my 1911 worked on. I need a place that can perform the following:

-Cut slide for dovetail front sight/BoMar rear
-Install dovetail front/bomar adjustable rear night sights
-Fit & blend Smith&Alexander magwell
-Fit national match bushing
-Trim barrel flush with bushing/recrown
-Deburr & Melonite finish

I have the magwell and the nm bushing, all i would need in terms of parts are the night sights. Is there a good smith here or elsewhere that can get all of this done? I'd prefer to send it to just once place.

Thanks in advance for your recommendations.

Contact Dave Erickson at Condition One Pistolsmithing. Great guy, and he does very good work with very reasonable turnaround time.

Karl Sokol owner/oper of Chestnut Mountain Sports

Top notch. Built two of mine and smoothed out a third. Very affordable for the work completed

Just about every company that sells good 1911s also has a decent custom shop. SA is pretty good from what I hear, as is Wilson Combat.
