I was thinking about getting some work done on my pistol. What I was looking at was:

Trigger Job
Hammer/sear
extractor tune
tighten frame
fit brushing

at Wilson, its going to be around $390 plus shipping
at springfield, its going to be $490 plus shipping

I was wondering which does better work. Is Springfield worth the extra $100 or is Wilson going to be a better choice.

Pistol is a Springfield 1911A1 Loaded Parkerized

any thoughts?

I would go with Wilson. I have a Wilson Combat gun and it is perfect in every way. Bill Wilson started his career with guns as a gunsmith and was nationally known as such. Either place you are going to get the tops in service.

I agree, I would go with wilson. I would go with wilson if they were the same price.

Yeah. Thats what I was thinking too. I've heard alot of good things about Wilson. Springfield seems to be very hit-and-miss sometimes. plus it's cheaper too - thats a BIG plus for me.

Thanks guys.

Bud: I am interested in the reason for your reply. The Springfield custom shop has done great work for me in the past and I know some highly respected gunsmiths who think their work is excellent.

I prefer to put my trust in an individual, who's work I've seen and felt. The money goes into his pocket, not some large business. Springfield's custom shop is well known, but who's doing the work? Think they're all master pistolsmiths there?

Between your two choices, I'd jump on Wilson. I'd have thought he'd be higher.
