I have decided to take the plunge and build my own 1911. Fortunately a reputable gunsmith has mercifully agreed to supervise this project. I am trying to weigh my options of buying a complete pistol and "re-build" it so to speak, or buying a matched slide and frame and a Wilson or C&S parts kit.
Who has had the best results and in what way?
I know either way could be labor intensive but I'm confident in my machining abilities and I'm also willing to learn something new. Ideas, tips, or even top secrets are very welcome.
