Lets talk High end 1911's for a spell...when I say High end I mean guns that start in the 2K plus range.

makers that come to mind are Les Baer, (one of my fav's, but don't own one yet) Wilson Combat, Nighthawk Custom.

Of course they all have many different models....

I've always lusted after a really really nice 1911 but have not thrown down for one...So who's got one, had one etc....

are they worth the $ or is it just style points and marketing hype....

I know we got at least one Les Baer owner on here...feel free to discuss any other high end makers I left out....lets keep it to 1911 guns that we know are 2K and up

I am going to agree with lwilf, I can't see putting $2000 plus into a 1911 when a Kimber or Springfield will shoot just as well.

No doubt the fit and finish of Wilson,Nighthawk or Brown custom is better and I guess that's what you are paying for,plus the name engraved on the slide. I would rather have 3 Springfields for the price of one high end 1911.

I had him send it to me "in the white" so that we can be sure it is just right before having the finish applied. The only downside I see to this is double shipping, (and having to send it back!). I haven't sent it back yet...

Those that say they don't get it have never shot or held a semi custom or full custom.
Wrong , have shot and held many of them.
