One question.

who could bring themselves to shoot it?

Beautiful work.

And I've been thinking about where/when I am shipping my new Colt 70S.

How long is your waiting list? I really NEED a "Grey Gun" clone.
Link Posted: 1/13/2006 5:54:27 PM EDT
I think the better question may be, are you even accepting new work?
Link Posted: 1/13/2006 5:54:35 PM EDT
Don't worry about the wait. We need to be happy if Chuck is still even taking work. Make the phone call.

That pistol is really something.

I am curious how long it takes a pistol to go from base gun to completion?

Mr. Rogers,
Are these being sold separately or as a pair?
Price for each?
Thank you.

This man (Chuck Rogers) is not only a great 1911 Smith but a Master Machinist. You can barely fit one of your hairs between the beavertail and the frame. If you are looking for an outstanding 1911 I suggest you give one of these due consideration. I am

Thanks for the kind words!
Both guns have been spoken for.
Hopefully, I'll have a chance this year to build a couple more.

BEAUTIFUL detail. Those are quite impressive.

Do you sell those as "turnkey" versions...?

These are two guns I built up specifically for the SHOT show.
Both have been sold, pending receipt of funds.
As I have a large backlog of customer's gun awaiting work, I don't normally get a chance to 'just build a few'.
Hopefully, I can find time again this year, to build a couple more.
My 'waiting list' is currently closed. I am not accepting any new projects with the exception of some simpler jobs, such as front strap texturing and sight installations.
This is truly a 'one man shop'. I answer the phone, pay the bills, sweep the floors, empty the garbage etc. and try to find some time to get some work done.hanksChuck
