Here is a hint of the kind of 1911 work I would like to have.. yep.. probly 4grand in engraving and refinishing.. .then it would have to go to someone like Atlas for an accuracy job... we are talking an inch to an inch an a half at 50 yards. so there is another 3k... So I end up with a gun that costs maybe 8k and takes a couple years to complete.
And.. dick that I am.. it will get shot... a lot. oh.. not sure about the gold.. probly won't have any.
