Here is the Rub:

Being a skilled machinist with a great shop does not make you a 1911 smith. Head over to and look at the threads by pistolwrench(chuck rogers) or JoeC(joe chambers) or any of the other pros that are there. 1911s are not pulled out of a CNC machine, smoothed on the edges, finished, and assembled.

To build 1911s of that caliber is an art of its own. Much more than being a great machinist.
