Let's talk custom guns, with details

No specific requirement for how custom it is right?

This is my lone 1911, a Springfield Armory Loaded model. I bought it for a song from another guy in the barracks, with only 100 rounds through it. I know the round count because I was with him when he bought it new, and the one occasion he fired it on. After a few years of ownership I decided it wasn't 100% what I wanted, and started reading up on 1911's. After hours spent combing over 10-8 performance's website and reading Hilton Yam's recommended shops, I decided to send it back to Springfield Armory's custom shop. I had them perform the TRP package with just a couple of tweaks to it. I had them install a  Smith and Alexander magwell instead of their two piece version, that was to rid the gun of the ILS. I also had them install a single sided safety instead of ambi (this is a fun gun, not defensive use). I went with a GI guide rod, just personal preference.  Sights are an XS Standard dot front, with an LPA rear that has been opened up to match. I plan to swap the rear for a 10-8 Performance at some point. So not a full bore custom, but as close as I got.

How do you like LPA adjustable sight?

I'm pretty sure I have a 10/8 rear sight in the parts box somewhere, if you are interested.

I really like the sight, I just don't have confidence in its durability. Then again, it's a fun gun. I will probably just run the LPA until I break it (if I break it). I really do prefer an adjustable sight when I am trying for accuracy.

Thanks for the offer though.

Cylinder & Slide Kahr CW40.

This gun was built by Cylinder and Slide recently and was featured in the HANDGUNS Buyer's Guide for 2017.  C&S took the lower level gun (the CM40 is the better optioned model from the factory), and machined a dovetail for the FO front sight, performed a trigger job with a polished trigger.  They recrowned the barrel and polished and throated it as well.  They gave the silde and slide stop a much needed dehorn.  The frame was stippled, and the mags were fitted with better followers.  The extractor was tuned, and the ejection port opened up slightly.  All in all, a very clean single stack carry gun, in a serious caliber, tuned for real reliability and accuracy.  C&S's work isn't cheap, but it is very nice.

 

I like the Kahr..I'v got both a PM9 and P9, and I've considered sending them off for a little tuning.

I had a Kahr PM45. I dumped it because it wasn't reliable. Every once in a awhile I think about getting another and sending it to cylinder and slide but I think it's problems is the magazine. The floor plate was  plastic and slightly extended. it should have been metal and flush fitting. If Kahr had made these to take 1911 mags they wouldn't be able make them fast enough. 


 

They look like 1911 mag bodies. I don't know why they didn't engineer them to take 1911 mags for a reload . Obviously a  five round mag wouldn't work in a 1911 but what a great idea for a backup to a 1911. I know the full size mags would extend and the is the possibility of shoving the mag in too far but if you tactical reloaded with the slide forward to worries. Most of my malfunctions were FTF. It seemed as if my grip was catching on the plastic floor plate and pulling the mag down  a little bit. I wished they made it a little shorter so I could curl my little finder under like the old detonics


 

I have something to add to this awesome thread. I have always liked the Browning Hi Power. Several years ago while I was working part time in a gun shop I was able to purchase a well used Hi Power for almost nothing. It was an older version with the internal extractor. I had a local smith fix the extractor, but I don't shoot it much as I have not been able to find a source for the internal extractor. I have heard of people replacing the slide with a newer version or one from an Inglis Hi Power clone, but have not delved into that.  

 I always wanted a custom Hi Power that fixed the two issues I had with them. Those two issues were the sights and the trigger. While I wanted a custom Hi Power I didn't really want to pay the custom price. For one custom pistol I could buy a new Glock with the sights I wanted, ammo, and a class. Or at least come close. This thread like many others on LF loosened up my wallet. I sold a few guns and traded others. I ended up acquiring three pistols and would like to talk about them for a minute.

 Browning Hi Power from KS Customs. I had never heard of this smith, but I know I do not know every gunsmith out there. I traded a Glock 17 MOS and some cash for this pistol. The individual I traded to received this Hi Power in a trade as well and was not the original owner. He did not have the build sheet so I am going from what I can tell. I have contacted the smith and he is on break until after the New Year, but promised me the build sheet when he gets back from vacation.

 -Novak rear sight with a fiber optic front, green. I am not sure on the maker of the front sight. This is my first pistol with a FO front sight and I like it. May not be my choice for all applications, but this is a fun gun for me and it will spend most of its time at the square range with occasional carry.

-C&S trigger and commander hammer. I do not have a trigger pull gauge, but the trigger is very nice.

-Stippled frame front and rear. Before having this in my hand I did not think it would provide enough grip. I was wrong. Not as much grip as say a 1911 with checkering, but an improvement over stock. I believe the base pistol was a MK3 Practical as the serial number is not on the grip, but on the upper frame and slide.

-Stippling on top of slide. I have seen this on custom 1911’s, but never a Hi Power and I prefer it. Supposed to reduce glare but I find it makes it easy to acquire front sight.  

-TAF-1 finish two tone.

Browning Hi Power MK3 from Don Williams. The owner had recently received this from Don Williams and did not like it. He wanted another 1911 he could send to another smith and I was happy to trade him a stock series 70 Colt Government. The day before he posted it for sale/trade I had called Don Williams and was told 6-12 months before he could think about taking new work. Basically I had someone test fire it for me and avoided a long wait. I don’t like waiting. This one I have a build sheet for.

 -Trigger job with C&S hammer. Used Browning trigger for an excellent trigger job

-Beavertail. Having an example with a beavertail I much prefer this.

-Harrison rear sight black with Harrison front fiber optic

-Custom external safety. Very much like the 1911 safety.

-Stippled front and rear frame. This one has the serial number on the grip and is stippled around.

-Re blued in a deep blue almost black

 I am very happy with my new Hi Powers. Before I got these I bought two stock Hi Powers in 9mm, one a practical and another MK3. I am going to keep one of them and send it to Karl Sokol. I like the extended safety on my Action Works Hi Power better than the one on the KS Custom and that may be something I rectify.

The last pistol is a Springfield Armory Range Officer in 45acp. John Harrison advertised it on his Facebook page prior to Christmas. A close friend of his bought it new and had Harrison work on it a bit at as time from 2011 to last month. Harrison advised the owner did not shoot it much and he was trying to off load it now for a custom 1911 from him. Harrison did the following.

 -Install his rear sight, plain black and front red fiber optic

-Harrison design trigger and ignition system.

-Harrison magwell

not a lot of custom work, but it addressed some minor issues with a good out of the box pistol. I have not shot this one yet. Hopefully will get to that this week. My pictures are horrible. I used the sellers pictures where I could.

Nice rifles Mac. I do not have a 300 in the armory, yet.

Newt your not the only one here who wanted that Don Williams Hi Power. I'm glad I got it. 

I have something coming from a smith and something going to a smith later this week early next week. This thread has released a monster. I may need a couch to sleep on soon. Payment will be in custom guns.

LPD if you are thinking a MK13 I would recommend High Caliber Sales. The gunsmith is one that worked on the project at crane.

So, in hopes of keeping this thread from dying, and until a couple of projects reach completion, I'll dig into some guns that are no longer mine.

1964 Colt National Match, Built by Greg Derr.  

I acquired a collectible and desirable pre-70 NM at an auction.  I probably snagged it for $6-700 less than market value.  I immediately decided to make a carry gun out of it.  Most people would say that I'm crazy for taking a very nice collectible gun and chopping it, but I've been known to do crazier things...or YOLO...or something like that.

I love the feel of the wide NM/Gold Cup triggers.  They spread the pressure over a wider portion of my trigger finger and "feel" like less pressure is needed to release the sear.  

These old guns shoot really well, so I knew I didn't need to rebarrel it.  Aside form the normal mods, and beautiful finishing work.  Greg took care of the safeties and dovetailed in a front sight.  He replaced the ultra rare conical spring plug and bushing with a conventional setup so I could preserve the original parts.   I think the elliason rear sight is fine as long as you're not the type to bang around the gun on door jambs and such. 

Overall, probably the classiest carry gun I ever commissioned.   It was a show stopper whenever it was out of the holster

 

Here is an old school custom 1911 with a bit of family history.  This remington rand was issued to my grandfather in 1941, as his sidearm.  He was a Captain served in Italy, France and the rest of EO.  He flew FAC missions in a O-1 Birddog, was shot down once in Belgium, and later managed to avoid a FW-190.  He was awarded the Distinguished Fly Cross and Silver Star.  When he returned he was stationed in Japan until Korea where he again flew FAC missions.  After Korea he remained active duty, and began shooting standing bullseye with the gun.  It has non numbers matching national match parts, barrel and bushing among other parts.  The pistol was also fitted with early fixed national match high profile sights.  He shot it at Camp Perry finishing in the top 3 one year.  I have the patch and his old shooting jacket in my vault.  He went on to help pioneer the use of Hueys in combat at Fort Rucker, even setting at the time a world speed record for rotary aircraft.  As a Lt. Colonel he did one tour in SE asia with this pistol at his side.  I fire it with great love and an amazing sense of family history.  
 

Just got this back today while I was at work. This custom pistol was a direct influence because of this thread. I sent it to Evolution Armory the day after Thanksgiving 2016.

I bought the pistol from a member here and I knew that I was the second maybe third owner. I originally wanted a few cosmetic upgrades, but that quickly morphed into the below 1911.

The base gun was a Kimber Warrior 1911. The entire gun was coated in ION Bond black. The trigger is a 10-8 flat trigger with Harrison Design components. The front strap was checkered 25lpi to match the mainspring housing. 10-8 plain black front and rear sights. 

The grip safety and thumb safety were also replaced with EGW parts. 

The biggeat work for the smith was to clean up the scratches and dings from years of hard use prior to my ownership. Here are some before and after pictures.

Colt S.70 Repro - Jim Garthwaite

I've owned quite alot of custom guns, and many I've owned just so I could experience the work and understand the builder before passing them on to others.  Jim Garthwaite has been a favorite builder of mine for many years.  I had a custom Delta that was built by jim several years back that was spectacular.  I had intended for that particular gun to be set aside for my son.  Unfortunately, I transferred it to a "friend" for him to use, and he never returned it.  With each passing day, my hopes for getting it back dwindle.  I'm betting it ended up in a pawn shop somewhere in TX.

Anyway, it was time to build myself another.  I wanted a forever gun that I could enjoy and someday give to my boy.   I sold that hard chromed Wilson I detailed in an earlier post.  It generated enough money for me to commission this build.  Since I wanted this to be an "heirloom" type piece, I opted to buy a brand new gun for the project.  Normally, it's a waste to do so, since the smith is tossing everything anyway, and refurbishing the exterior of the pistol too.  But I wanted the original custom shop box, receipts, packaging, etc. so I paid the premium and bought a new one.  

I shipped it straight to Jim after firing a box of ammo through it.  He immediately called me back to tell me my gun was rusted under the grips.  He also mentioned that alot of the new colts with wood grips are showing up this way.  The grips must not be sealed well, and the wood is holding moisture against the blued steel frame.

He scrapped the grip bushings and got to removing the rust and sanding the frame flat.  He got most of it out, but since the damage was under the grips, we agreed to not go too far trying to fill in the pitting.

We spec'd a full house gun, minus some of the aesthetic options.  I want this gun to look right 100 years from now, so I left out things that might fall out of fashion, like french borders, hand matted rounds, etc.  I'm a simple guy with simple tastes and I wanted that reflected in the build.  The plain front sight is a result of this concept.  Tritiums would need replacing.  Fiber optics and fancy fluorescent paint don't really have a place on this type of build either.  

So Jim did his usual thing, which is building accurate, reliable, attractive pistols.  I spec'd a couple of things out of the ordinary.  One is to use a Vickers FCG.  Jim has his own sear/hammer combo, so it was gracious of him to allow me to provide him those parts.  and I wanted to use a King's 201 safety.  These parts are no longer produced, but they are my favorites and Jim did a great job reprofiling the safety to match the look of the rest of the pistol.  Major components include Wilson BTGS, Kart Barrel, EGW bushing, Heinie sights, etc.

I can't be happier with the way the gun turned out, or how the entire build process developed.  Jim, as always, is an easy guy to work with.  and I have him artistic freedom for everything.  I just asked him to build a pistol with that thumb safety and trigger group.  I left all the rest to him.

 

Very nice TheJanitor.

Evolution Armory treated me very good. I called them up after Thanksgiving and had the pistol back under 5 months. I got almost daily updates through text messages from the Smith. 

They have started to do some full house builds that look great.

BR50 rifle

 So, something a little different...again. This is a friend and fellow LFer's standard class rimfire silhouette rifle. 

It is a Anschutz BR50 square action..it used 4 action screws, bedded into a Mcmillan stock. Leupold Competition fixed 25X scope.  Work done Evelio McDonald.

Group below was shot with the pictured Lapua Midas ammo by me, at 100yds from the bench set up also pictured..only my 3rd or 4th group with the rifle, still gettig used to the very light trigger. Better rest and shooter, and you would really see what this gun can do.

Dan will have to explain it, but he used this rifle to compete in the NC state match and won something or other with it...he is like a grand pubah level silhouette shooter.

Janitor, 

 I know where one or two might be for sale....just sayin'



I think I posted this in the Rimfire rigs thread also, but, what the hell...

The story of this one is long and arduous..

it is a Remington 504 in .22LR that started out as a sporter. I used to not be into 22s all that much, but I strated hanging around with the owner of the above Annie, and we have been trading rifles back and forth for a bit. I got the base gun from Dan in some sort of drug deal....I bought a Lilja full bull barrel for it, where it had some extraction issues. I had contacted a smith that builds synthetic stocks and inlets for the 504, and sent him a down payment. During the wait, I had thought about selling the rifle due to the extraction issues, but the smith was sure he could correct that..so I sent the rifle to him and waited, and waited and waited...during that period, I decided the cost was just not going to be worth it, for what amounted to a plinker..and precision plinker, but still a plinker..so I canclled the stock, which he had not begun to build. and sent him the factory laminated target stock.  and waited and waited..the results are see below.

The smith

-pillar and glass bedded the stock..there is a difference between the sporter action and targer action..mostly the action screws/pillars..

-Re-contoured the Lilja barrel, so it has about an .870 muzzle diameter..a little lighter then the .9?? that it was. It was also bead blasted.

-Fixed the extraction issues

-Painted the stock OD green with Weatherby tan webbing

Scope is a Zeiss Conquest 4.5-14X with Z1000(?) reticle in Leupold STD bases and rings.

Shot the shown group today at 100 yards using SK Rifle Match ammo, did some work at 200 yards also. I've shot better groups, so not sure if its the ammo or the gun acting up..could be me...but it was fairly calm day.

I may decide to upgrade to a Murphy Precision sloped Picattiny base ,TPS rings & a scope with a little more X's on the top end. This Zeiss has a lot of elevation travel, as I was able to get from a 100 yard zero to 200 yards..80+ 1/4" clicks.

I've got not a whole lot of disposable income, but I figured I'd post a pair of project guns I've built in the last few months.

[img]https://i.imgur.com/vkX1bKF.jpg[/img]

The first is a G19 that I slowly tweaked and modded up to what I lovingly call a discount roland special. The main functional difference being that I personally did not feel the need to add an optic to the gun.  I'm perfectly functional with irons and I definitely don't have the cash to drop on milling and a slide mounted optic.  The sights are generic trijicon night sights. The other obvious external mods are the comp (primary machine makes it) which is mounted on a silencerco threaded barrel,  the APL that has a permanent home on the light rail, the "tiger stripe" stippling for offhand thumb, the extended slide release, and the Strike Industries baseplates on the mags. I like the baseplates, partly because they add a further sci-fi blaster feel, and partly because they add some surface area for loading/pulling from pouches. Something a bit less obvious was that I took some very fine grit sandpaper to the finger grooves until they felt more like suggestions. I got them just to the point where if I screw up my draw or grip, then it's actually not uncomfortable to have my fingers on top of the ridges. It doesn't feel right, but it doesn't compromise my grip. I felt like this was a worthwhile trade off versus removing them or leaving them stock, because the stock ones just feel too "pointy", but I actually like them a little bit for grip purposes. YMMV, but I found it made the gun way more comfortable.  The rest of the mods are pretty simple. I threw in an extended slide lock/take down tab thing, replaced the disconnector with one from Ghost Inc Triggers (4.5# pull, has some fancy holes cut in it to help the gun keep running when it's full of shit) and "turbo maritime spring cups) from the same company. Partly for the claimed benefits of increased reliability in very adverse conditions, but mostly because I was hoping to decrease lock time. Which it did (ever so faintly) , coupled with a minuscule (can barely feel it) decrease in trigger pull weight, but that might just be my imagination.   

[img]https://i.imgur.com/JIUiVFw.jpg[/img]

The second one is an AR. I actually splurged a little bit on this setup and honestly some design choices were motivated more by aesthetic than practicality. Broadly speaking, however, the gun is damn near ideal for me. The only qualm I have about it is that it's a "pistol" and not an out and out SBR.  I started this build out with a 10.3" barrel from Ballistic Advantage, mostly because they offer the option to have a gasblock pinned from the factory. They ship you the barrel and block mated together with the pin removed, you knock it off with some wood and a rubber mallet, put your barrel nut on, and install it all back together. They also pay attention to other little details, like offering a nitrided gas tube. My only complaint is I've found their barrels to generally be on the tightest end of spec, meaning you often have to heat your reciever with a propane torch to get a fit worth a damn, and finish your install with a mallet. Not fun.  The rail is a quad rail made by HERA arms, which is actually a little german company that does mostly niche stuff. The rail choice was mostly aesthetic and intended to get me something MK18 "esque". That said, it's very well made and has some nice features I don't mind, like a QD sling mount on both sides and some actually pleasant to look at lightening cuts. I threw an Aero BCG in there with an AXTS Raptor, put the PWS take on a flashcan at the front, and basically called it good from there. The lower is where most of the tweaks on this took place, I'd say. The pins were BAD "enhanced" pins, made of titanium, and have a few differences designed to make it easier to push or pry them with tools. Both have divots on one side that will fit the nose of a 5.56 round to help push out, and the rear pin has a cut out to let you pry with the rim of a 5.56 case. I used an Odin Works XR3 for the mag release and I really like it so far. Only issue is you may have issues with trigger pin clearance in some cases. Grip is a Magpul K2+, and the trigger is an ALG ACT.  It's really, really smooth, but I have a serious disclaimer about my use of this trigger. I found that for the first 40-50 pulls, the trigger did not consistently reset! After my first range trip with the gun for a zero attempt, I had to bring it home and dry fire the gun a good 30 plus times to get the trigger to reset consistently. The reset is very gritty, which is not a word I would usually use to describe any trigger, but it is extremely noticeable. The reset has audible and tactile "stutters" and a scrape-y feeling to it. I have mixed feelings about this because the pull itself is wonderful, and the reset, despite how freaking wierd it feels, is very audible, tactile, and short.  Trigger aside, I also threw on a Strike Industries enhanced bolt catch (this is on every AR lower I've built for good reason) and a PWS Ratcheting Castle nut/End Plate. I've become a huge fan of these. They're a bit pricey and if you're fine with staking your nut then there's no point. But if you're like me and could see yourself switching buffer tubes in the future, maybe after say, a tax stamp, then it's worth the extra money. It's also really awesome with their lightweight buffer tube, which I'm also a huge fan of. The "Enhanced Cheek Rest" is a thing made by Thordsen customs, who also do all sorts of work making scary black guns Cali compliant. I sprung for an extended buffer tube and spring combo from them to help reduce the recoil that an upper like this inevitably produces. It also gives a more natural length of pull, IMO, especially given the SOPMOD like cheekweld profile of the Thordsen custom. If you're wondering why the front sight is pulled back like that, it's because I'm leaving room for a TLR-1 HL that I'm still saving up for.  

This ended up looking more like a very ugly list than a nice neat writeup, but hey, they're my guns and I'm happy with them. 

Pew, pew. 

Got the call today that this little guy would be heading home to me very soon. Almost an entirely new gun.
