    Who does good 1911 work?

    I picked up 91 compact ( cheep series 80) and find that it hammers me pretty good .. So thinking about having someone put a wilson combat memory grip on it ... But I was wonder is there any good people I could see the gun too for a complety overhaul to me it grand ? Hopefully that would not cost in the 10 of thousand of dollares or take years to do ?

    If not other then a new bevertail anything else I should add to make this a great carry gun?

    thanks

    I'm not understanding what you are asking.
    You want someone to change the grip safety to reduce recoil? Or are you getting hammer bite? What do you mean by hammering you?

    Whatever it is you said up there, Lou with Business End Customs is a member here, and he can do it.

    You won't be disappointed.

    I second the Lou nomination. Great work, fast turnaround and reasonable prices.

    My bad on lack o reading it ... Was a bit hot from shooting in the 90s sun

    TLDR version is I am toying on rather to just replace the grip saftey or to send in the gun for a full overhaule ... The gun is hitting me hard in the palm of my hand when I fire

    Springfield Armory Custom Shop. Round trip shipping to them is less than $40. Much cheaper than other options. Their prices are competitive and work is great. They stand by their work and you will be happy. Google Springfield Armory Custom Shop price list and you will get a PDF of there work/price list. I'm planing to send them my EMP and CBob.

    You could give Eric Zinn a call - he's over in Mesa. He's done a couple of jobs for me and his work is first-rate. FWIW, he shares shop space with Angus Hobdell of CZ Custom... which wouldn't happen if he was just a run-of-the-mill hack.

    Great guy in Flagstaff Az. and his work is outstanding but you have to talk to him about cost on what you want.
