Dick, that is a beautiful pistol. Course, I have not seen one from your shop that was anything but sweet, sweet, sweet. :grin:
Lou, love that holster too! After beating on my Alessi GWH w/ stingray from Lou and Rupert, I am convince that Alessi leather is unbeatable. Now, will someone PUULLEAZE build Lou a website???????????????? I need to see more product! :smile:
The Pistol is a Stainless Springfield, with
what I call a Tactical/Carry Pkg. I have found it is easier for a customer to look at
a package and decide what he or she wants. This has all the whistles and bells to make it a good Pistol for the purpose stated. You can have more or you can have less. I have a large Menu to choose from.
This one has a few extras. Like a Bordered Slide, Full Length Guide Rod, Ambi-Saftey.
The trigger is a McCormick Aluminum. It was used by Customer request to better match the Stainless. The grips are Hogue Tulipwood.
This is the Second Pistol I built with the
Scalloped Front Strap and Mainspring housing.
This is a Customers Pistol.
Price on Customer Supplied Components is:
Gee, what a bargain, maybe thats why I have a 7-8 year wait.

Question...I want to jump on your wait list soon. I want a gun that has an officer's size frame and a commander length slide.
Would it be better to get a Springfield compact, or use a Caspian slide-frame set?
Also, with the Springfield, do all the compacts made today come with the standard Novak sight cut? I know you make the Slant Pros to fit the Novak cut, but for whatever reason, I don't like the look of the Novak (or Kimber) sight cut. So I'm hoping that Springfield Compacts are still available with a standard rear sight.
Richard, thanks for the specs. Truly a beautiful pistol you built, even if its on a Srringfield :wink: Thanks again for your email y'day about the grips! I know you are a busy man and I appreciate you're taking the time to answer my question.
Enough of all of this Dick Heinie worship and Dick Heinie this and that with these god awful pistols.
Seriosuly, readers of pistolsmith.com what do we care about flawless metal work, superb fit and finish, perfect attention to detail, a well trained eye for quality and innovation... God, and to think I already own some of them...Now all of you guys that own these pistols need to move on and begin selling them to me.
Seven years is far too long to wait Mr. Heinie by then I am sure you will have invented yet again more clever 1911 mods and I will have identified at least a few dozen Heinie 1911s I want to buy?
Life is so unfair....Will bribery work??
Now, if that picture only had quality Gold Dot ammo under the pistol it would be perfect..
On and Lou.. you are getting sleepy.. very sleepy.. send your new BCP Colt to David DiFabio.
