Afraid I can't help you there. There is a notorius lack a good smiths in the area. Or at least none that I know about.

Had to take my Kimber to Evansville to get it smithed.

Good luck...please update if you find someone good.

Darrell StoneBreaker at Darrell's Custom Guns in Cayuga, about 45 minutes to an hour North of T.H. if he's still there!

P.S. Where at in Robinson? Those are my old stomping grounds!

Tri-State out on Loyd's expressway. I still had a business card from them and called this morning. Said the number was disconnected...not sure if they are still in business?

I forgot about Darrell's in Cayuga. Stand up guy and easy to work with. Former IPSC tournament shooter. I'd say he'd be a good bet for your 1911. I'd call and ask to speak to him.

Let us know how it turns out for you.

I've had Darrel do some work for me (not 1911) and it was fine work. The AR barrel turn down took a long time, but the AR trigger work only about a week, and the revolver work was while I waited. Be sure to ask him about the turn around time if you're in a hurry to get it back though.

Darrel is THE BEST if he has time to do your work and/or you can wait for it.
