Welcome to TFL, doc51. I moved your post out of the thread you posted it in since it really wasn't on topic for that thread, and your question would have been lost in there.

Brotherhood Arms in Garland TX did work on my guns. A couple of gun guys who will take good care of you and your gun.

From their website you can look at examples of their work

www.huntercustoms.com talk to Bob

He's a member of this forum. My 1911 is there right now. I trust him, others on this forum do too.

I've talked with the owner of Woodlands tactical in N. Houston and he is very knowledgeable when it comes to 1911's. It's his specialty and has helped me with my ambi safety and extractor issues. If he can't do it, he will definitely point you in the right direction.
