While I await delivery of my Ed Brown SF, I've been thinking about having some work done on my [only] other 1911 - a 25 year old Colt Combat Commander. I stopped at my local gun shop a couple of days ago to inquire about having their gunsmith do the work. I was a little surprised to hear that he prefers to work on long guns (to avoid the handgun paperwork), so I started thinking I should look for a gunsmith with extensive experience working on 1911s. I'd appreciate any advice you have for a name in Suffolk or Nassau. Thanks.
