Those of you that are considering the artistry of a custom pistol craftsman, need look no further than Dane Burns. He built a custom Kimber Compact for my wife that, in her words, fits her like a glove, and her results prove it. The custom metal work is incredible and most importantly it ALWAYS works with whatever it is fed. Add to that, Dane just worked on a Springfield TRP for me. Nothing sexy, just a trigger job. Well, hardly just a trigger job...this pistol started out with a 8lb factory pull (yes, not a type...8lbs) and now breaks like silk on glass at 4lbs. This really changed this pistol from being one that I like to one that I love. Turn around time was unbelievable (5 days) and you can't find that type of quality for the price anywhere. I can't recommend Dane enough. If you aren't familiar with him, you can find him at http://www.burnscustom.com

A picture of my wife's pistol can be found at http://www.pistolsmith.com/viewtopic.ph ... &forum=6&2

Here's the gun in question for everyone's convenient viewing:



I'd like to use this opportunity to show off the Delta Elite that I just got back from Dane today... ran 150 rounds through it without a hitch. Note that I'm not claiming to show off my PHOTOGRAPHIC skills. :eek:



As an aside, this whole forum is Dane's bailiwick, so I doubt that there are many people here who don't know who he is. Don't worry, bragging about your BCP is expected, you'll fit right in. :grin:

CastleBravo,

I appreciate the help with the Pic. Any chance you can guide me in how to post pics with each post. I have some others to share. Hopefully some of the visitors of this forum are looking for help in selecting a custom smith and will see the light and work with Dane. BTW: Great looking pistol.

To show a picture, paste the address of the picture into your message, the put [i m g] at the beginning of the address and [/i m g] at the end. Oh yeah, remove the extra spaces so it is "img."

After viewing Dane's artistry here, I knew he was the person to turn my Commander from a sows ear into the proverbial silk purse.:smile: I agree with Dane on classic and simple modifications to 1911's which helped in making the decision.

As I just dropped off the pistol last month, I'm still in the waiting stage. I have no doubts that I will be extremely pleased with the finished product.

Lefty has been persistant here but we are not suppose to dbl post on any two topic lines. I have deleted this thread twice. Hopefully one or the other will die a slow death.

I do appreciate the compliments guys but there are other good smiths here too. Ask around on prices and delivery times. Any number of us can help you out I suspect.

Dane,

Sorry about that. Felt that I had mis-posted the original one and kept wondering what I was doing wrong since the posts were not showing up. Didn't know you were the ghost deleter.

No problem Bro :grin: It is my job!

But with threads that start with "My thoughts on Dane Burns" that is kind of scary. There are a few out there in cyber land that might not be as kind as this forum is.

No harm, no foul :grin:
