Hello,
Wondering what (especially Mr. Burns and other smiths)thought of the "Pointman" by Krebs Custom. Have any of you inspected it? What is the quality of the parts, etc?
thanks,

-Mike

You have seen Tom's reply and I have seen Tom's pistol.

The parts are in general the same as used in a basic Kimber. (frame and slide and internals) The front strap treatment is original.

Any number of us (BCP, Nowlin, Krebs) offer upgraded guns based on the Jericho/Kimber parts and or guns.

Krebs is known for doing excellent 1911 work.

Thanks for your (very) quick response. I was actually thinking more comparitively, such as your FED package to the point man... I realize that you wouldn't want to put down anyone, but I was looking for an honest comparision in quality, atention to detail etc....thanks agian!

I build a customer's FED from your Kimber. I do it one at a time, by myself. I build it the way I would want my personal gun built. You have the ability to pick my brain on the subject and detail your gun exactly the way you decide you want it built.

I am in the process of building some production FEDs that were offered through P-T Partners. That is not the same gun that you can get from me if you have your own FED built in my shop.

The difference? Simply, the details.

One is built to my spec at a specific price point the other is built to yours.

Example? You may choose a BarSto, while I use a barrel made specifically for me. You may choose the "WAVE" or checkering while the gun comes with 30 lpi serrations. I fit wood grips, you may want Micarta or Carbon Fiber.

The production gun is a production gun with no options other than finish or night sights. Hence the price point. A custom FED from my shop has no limits on up grades or price point. Production gun you wait less than 6 months, custom FED has year wait.
