Hey, Fellow Texans: Can any of you recommend a good 1911 smith in the San Antonio area?

Is Greg Ferris still around? I lost track of him after his in-town shop closed in the early '90s.

Mike Falcone used to work for Ferris, but he is doing more general 'smithy work now. (At last check, he was at Barrons.) Depending on what you have in mind, Mike be able to help.

mnealtx,

Can't personally recommend a smith there, but have heard Alex Hamilton is/was there and seen mention of Alan Tillman (ART Enterprises) in Austin.

looks like http://www.texasactionshooting.u4l.com/ may be a place to start a search. Links to IDPA and IPSC clubs in SA area.

Good Luck

Thanks, guys, I'll check out the site, and those names. I thinking about some reliability work on my Kimber, and since it's my only weapon at the moment, I dont want it to be gone for months and months, otherwise I'd probably go with Bilby, Burns or Clark.
