    Check out Wilson Combat's website for some of the models they offer. You may be able to purchase just what you want from their normal line. They seem to have many tastes covered. They will also send you a copy of their catalog.

    Grayguns, Inc. is mostly known for their SIG work, but they do some excellent 1911 work, too. I have sent them two so far. Have a look at this (not mine, just an excellent rebuild project they put up on SIGforum):

    I love the work of Rogers Customs. Dont know if you have looked at Novak Customs. Very awesome work....and a fellow mountianeer. Dont think you will be disappointed with any of the suggestions so far.
