What can one say about a benchmark firearm that has been around for over 100 years? What would John Browning's thoughts be on how his design has evolved to where we are today? As craftsmen and fans, we are the lucky ones. 1911's can be found from a mass-produced low-end cost, to the other end of the spectrum of high-end custom art. In the world of builders that specialize in the 1911 out there, only a few have really defined a style and set a standard for others to follow, never settling for anything other than perfection.  It's been said that only a traditional polished blued finish with hand checkering is the only heirloom 1911 worthy of being passed down from generation to generation. I would have to respectfully disagree with these people and point out that innovative thinking and the finished design is what craftsmanship is all about. While I will agree that a more traditional style has a certain elegant appeal, it is no more or less elegant than that of its modern counterpart
