Good question, and I personally would have to think on it. I would probably start looking at the high end custom guys and start deciding who's work I like best.

By the way, welcome.

What a can of worms. I think it boils down to personal preference. If you have the cash you should research and get what you want, after all it will be your gun.

Gotta play to win,so I won't be winning the lottery anytime soon. But if I found myself with more money than I could spend I'd probably look at a well-fitted no-frills no-mim fighting pistol. If I ate beans and ramen for a while,I could actually probably get one now.

Darn wife. Darn kid. They ain't cheap,but they're worth it.

Or I'd buy 100 Taurus pistols. If one didn't work,rather than fix it I'd just grab another one!

I'd also get about 200,000 rounds of .45 delivered to my new fortified cabin in the middle of the woods. :eek:


(Hate to be "that guy" but why is this posted in the non-1911 forum?)

Good point, I guess I am not paying attention.

I agree with pistolero.... I would look at one of the high end 'smiths and have a custom built from the ground up.... I really like Chuck Rogers

Yost is definitely great, very nice Frenchy. Didn't yobo split up and change their name? I have not been to their site lately.
Edit: yep.

Chuck rogers is also the man Novak.

Lew Bonitz moved to Montana, thus the end of YoBo but Bonitz opened Grizzlie Custom with Tim Cronin.... you can get all the rifles and shotgun work and the 1* pistol packages..... Heirloom is straight custom work now... no packages, no professional or retro sights.... none of that from Yost, Burton and Bailey....

I would get some Nighthawk 1911's for sure, & have my gunsmith build one for me. He is very good!

I think I would go with one of Stan Chen's pistols. He really seems to have raised the bar with the custom work he does. But then again, if I won the lottery I would buy more than one!
