You guys really put out some awesome stuff. Nice, clean, practical guns. The simplicity adds to their beauty. I am in the process of getting parts together for a custom build. For some reason sending the gun to Yost-Bonitz keeps on popping up in my mind...hmm, I wonder why?

It is good to see shops that keep the true beaty/perfection of the 1911 still alive.

One question though. Why the Nowlin barrels instead of Kart?

I'm not trying to speak out of turn. The Nowlin barrels were probably used because they are stainless vs chrome-molly on a stainless gun?

Handmade tools with African blackwood handles.

Blackwood is a close term for the feeling those give me.

I cant wait to see those.

I wanted to share my thoughts on this work.
Here is my post concerning these guns as posted on the LTW forum:

"As with the other previews......I'm just at a loss for words.
The sheer 'class' of this work is of a magnitude I have not previously seen.
I've never been familiarized with fine rifles or shotguns. I have seen a few I thought were amazing in sheer craftsmanship. Most were described as having been built 'in the good old days'.

These 1911's, as seen above, have finally 'come of age'.

Hundreds.....mebbe thousands of years from now, these guns will still exist. Testimony, I think, to 'the good old days'.

Series 80 or 70?

If it's an 80 it will show to those who are unsure about the 80 that they need not be.

I love the rounded MSH -- looks great and would also be nice for carrying! One can certainly appreciate the attention to detail put into these pistols -- they look awesome!
