    Good read. The guy is incredibly meticulous. To understand the article in better context, I'd be interested to read one of his reviews of a high-end model to see what discrepancies that he finds.

    Thanks.

    WHEC he is amazing. Please check out his website and see the work he does. Especially the "sisters" he built.

    From the custom smiths i've been talking to and reading posts from, they are all that way when they get a gun. You send them a 1911 for custom work, they do the exact same measurements and everything. Justify their charges or not you have to respect the love they have for what they do and how meticulous they go about it.

    I will ask him if he has a review on say a TRP or some other higher end production gun.

    Interesting, Thanks for posting.
    But with all the issues he list on post #4 one would think that the SR1911 would not even work ( I know they are "Improvements")

    I am glad he likes the basic SR1911....
    I think Joe C is a Craftsman

    Thanks for posting, that is the most thorough evaluation I have seen on any gun. As far as my SR1911 I have only run 100 rounds of hardball through it so far but am very happy with it, now I just need to run a variety of SD loads through it to see what it prefers.

    Joe himself admits on his site just how obsessed he is with perfection. It shows.

    I asked the questions last night.

    He has done more reviews similar to this one, in his words, "than I can imagine", on higher end pistols.

    Scale of 1 to 10, SR1911 gets a 7. TRP for example is fine as long as it wasn't made on Monday or Friday (sounds like cars). Says alot for Ruger.

    One mans opinion, but the numbers on fit and specs don't lie. He just prefers a better fit.
