Does your friend already have a good reputation for doing custom gun work or expertise in gunsmithing? Does he shoot competitively and is well known in those circles? If not, than just owning some CNC machines and being able to read mechanical drawings is not going to cut it. Seems to me, long before he decided on the the idea of producing custom 1911s, he should have already done his marketing research. Producing something, without knowing the demand and the wants of potential customers in a market that is already saturated with models produced by well known and established manufacturers is gonna be a tuff row to hoe. Many custom 1911 makers were well known in their field for producing custom parts and doing custom work on other brands of 1911s before entering the market themselves. They created the demand before they produced the product.
