    New Chamber Custom 1911 - PICS!!

    This one is called a "WMG", Working Man's Gun (name given by Joe Chambers to this line of pistols). The idea behind this model is a simple, no frills pistol with superb accuracy and reliability. As far as build specs, this line is dependent on what Joe chooses with some minor upgrades or choices made by the buyer. The only additions that I requested are: Gold bead front sight, Aztec serrations and stippling on front strap and MSH, long solid trigger, and 2 extra mags (total of 4). Anything else will be at his discretion and I trust him with his choices.

    The three barrels fit to this pistol were being used by Joe to test accuracy, and I just happened to be the recipient of all three. Each barrel was fit to the slide, and a bushing and slide stop fit for each one. Chambers Custom 1911 Pistols









    The target results from all three barrels.

    Looks very nice. :)

    How is the reliability? Will it eat any ammo it's fed?

    Joe test fired 1000 rounds, yes, 1000, and it had zero issues.

    I guess I don't understand, but why 3 barrels? Are they different?

    Yes. Different manufacturers. Kart, KKM, and Wilson. All match grade barrels. The test was to see the difference in accuracy when fitted correctly. Wilson donated theirs for the test. As a Bullseye pistol builder, it's important for Joe to know which barrel performs the best.

    So what is the retail cost for this weapon? Typical 1911's range from $900 to $1200.
