    Quite a bit more than the typical range.

    Chambers has a few for sale Guns For Sale. You can check out the prices.
    However with full custom 1911s, if you have to ask how much you may want to "step down" to an Ed Brown.

    Beautiful Pistol sir

    Beautiful Pistol sir
    Thank you, sir.

    This build was a little/lot less than some of the special projects you see on his site. I could have chosen to have the $5k tag on it, but this is what I was after with this one. Down the road additional work can be done on this one.

    Well done sir.

    Every man should have a 1911 in his toolbag.

    Congrats, Deadguy.

    Question, what made you pick the 1911 frame over the A1 frame?

    A "working man's gun" that costs that much?

    I must be in the wrong line of "work."

    Nice shooting!!

    To address your purpose in posting this, I do realize I could have spent $529 for that same pistol or even less on a different model. Reason why I didn't? This is what I wanted. Of course, there are numerous other reasons that I don't need to justify, but getting what I wanted is the only one that really matters.

    Enjoy your Rock!
