In the Seattle area Dave Helton has been making some nice guns. I have one and it's been the most reliable and accurate 1911 I've owned.

I had one of his--a Kimber 1st series compact stainless- dressed out as a precursor of their CDP line. Trigger was downright SCARY light--somewhere around 1 1/2# and not good for a carry gun. Fit, finish and details were great.
And I don't think I have pics anymore, but will search to see.

Helton 1911

The frame and slide on the gun are Caspian with Ed Brown parts, Kart barrel, 4lb trigger, Heine tritium sights, rail, GI takedown and Green Kote. I had the flat mshs changed to arched. No malfs... it's been a nice gun. I picked it up to replace a LBTR. I see ownership has changed at DV Custom and there's not a link to the gun anymore. I'm not sure how to get pics from the computer to here...

I have that Helton Kimber that swampertwo is talking about and it is a wonderful gun. The trigger is VERY light but once you get use to it, you'll love it. It cycles like it's on glass and is scary accurate. I'll get it out and get some pic's soon.

Didn't want anyone to wait so I got it out tonight. I did swap the grips and the thumb safety out swamper. The pictures do not do the gun justice! It looks like a CDP until you start to look at it. The rear of the slide has been serrated to match the Heinie rear sight. It just has a great feel to the action. It's one of my favorite 1911's to date.
