Little sneak peak before Christmas. The new #cco #WMG that Eric finished up a few weeks ago. This one is in .38super but we'll be offering both CCO and Commander models in 9mm and .38super coming in 2019! #1911 #singlestack #1911builders #joecustom #theteacher #custom1911 #1911university #customgunmaker #custom1911maker #custom1911builder #1911university #chamberscustom #chamberscustompistols #ccp #mustardmatters #1911fanatics #1911addicts #1911builder #1911maker #custom1911 #9mm #38super @concealed_carry_nation

Some behind the scenes pictures of our end mill fixture being made. We surface all sides to square up first. After that we punch in a few holes and mill out some more pockets. We press in hardened drill bushings to ensure sear and hammer holes are perfect. When you're all done you have a hi use fixture that will last for years to come. #1911builders #1911 #1776 #maga #BuiltNotBought #americanpatriot #gunbuilder #combathandguns #edc #2ndamendment #freedoomisntfree
It's good to be the boss, sometimes you just want to do the lowest paid job in the shop. If you bought a gun from me prior to 2015 your paperwork is now in tiny little peices. It's quite satisfieing shredding DOJ paperwork. #1911builders #1911 #1776 #ShallNotBeInfringed #2ndamendment #maga #combathandguns #worldoffirepowermagazine #edc #wastingtime

Took this trigger from over 8lbs (literally of the scale) to right at 6lbs just by cleaning up the engagement surfaces. Still a little stout, but very very smooth with a crisp break. #1911 #1911porn #1911builders #stealtharms #triggerwork #triggerjob #pewpewlife #customshop #45acp #2a #shooterslife #instatactical #merica #tulsa #wheelerengineering #gunsmithing #pistolsmith #brownells
This weekend is the last Del Mar Gun show ever. Im sad to see it go we've been a vendor at this show for over 5 years. We're all packed up so get your kits early as we sell out early at this show. To celebrate the many years with Cross Roads we're having free beer with every purchase. See you tomorrow🍻🍻 #1911builders #1911 #1776 #BuiltNotBought #gunbuilder #freedoom #2ndamendment #combathandguns #worldoffirepowermagazine #americanpatriot #edc #willnotcomply
The inaugural shots fired from my recently completed @stealtharms 1911 80 percent build. I had so much fun building this gun and am already itching to do another one! Absolutely no malfunctions or any other problems. #1911 #stealtharms #80percent #1911builders #esimgunworks #pewpewlife #customshop #45acp #2a #1911porn #tulsa #sdistudent #sdischool #1911armorer
It's been a while since my last post, nearly a year in progress - here's my latest 9mm build in the raw. 1911 builder's 80% 2011 frame, Fusion slide & barrel, Extreme Shooter's Costa grip and Nighthawk Custom internals, 10-8 Performance sights #1911builders #builtnotbought
My @stealtharms 80% 1911 build is finally coming together! It's been an awesome project and I'm certain it's going to be a serious shooter!! #1911 #1911porn #80percent #stealtharms #pewpewlife #customshop #1911builders #esimgunworks #45acp #merica #pistolsmith #gunsmith #tulsa #whatidowhenimnotshooting
It's moving day... Just like any move it never goes as planned. We plan on being down for 4 hrs or so but it can be as long as 48. Our new home page has a blue 1911 on it.

The light bending optics of Chatoyant Carbon Fiber and Dichrolam never cease to amaze even me. Wild Ribbon Flame 2+1 Supershift Chameleon on left, and Red Burl on right. Sitting on a cutoff panel of my Dune glass that I sent to the NASA/JPL scientists at the University of AZ where they download hi res photos from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter thats mapping Mars @uahirise - photos that I used to draw the sand ripple patterns for the molds to make my Dune glass. So yes, my Dune is out of this world (sorry, had to).

We are going to wrap up todays posts with this stellar pair of 1911 pistols chambered in the powerful 10mm and 460 Rowland.😁😁😁👍 Not all 1911 design pistols are created equally folks. The 10mm cartridge can be pretty punishing on the metal frame and slides of even the most well made guns. The Para seen on the left was specifically made for it. The Ruger on the right was retrofitted with one of the infamous Rowland kits.... which actually come with a list of firearms suitable for the transplant. Apparently @rugersofficial firearms are up to the task.😉😉😉 Its been a slice folks. Thankyou for enjoying todays show, and have yourselves a safe night.😎👍 #1911 #1911builders #customguns #custom1911 #firearmphotography #gunloversunite #gunlover #rowland #10mm #bigguns #rangeday #dailygundose #sickguns #proudgunowner #gunbans #canada

Back to basic, solid CF in Chatoyant Carbon Fiber. Been so enthralled with exotic metallic interlayer versions, that its easy to forget the simple elegance of miles deep 3D figure one gets from pure CF molded under 15K lbs psf of pressure into my Wild Ribbon Flame molds. The movement literally has to be seen in person, as it messes with your eyes.

This is how our end mill fixtures start out. We rough cut on the bandsaw then surface all 4 sides to final demensions. After that we drill and mill out pockets for the various frames. Then we press in hardened drill bushing, a little laser work then into shipping. #1911builders #1911 #1776 #maga #builtnotbought #gunbuilder #americanpatriot #2ndamendment #worldoffirepowermagazine #combathandguns #edc #protectyourselfatalltimes
Some finely tuned machines. Wilson Combat Tactical Supergrade and Smith & Wesson E Series. #theshootersmindset #1911 #wilsoncombat
Speaking of Plastic Bins....... This one works like a charm. Just marshal up your handguns parts and put all the smart parts in this! Only a few dollars at your local Target or Walmart. Well worth the price. 💰👍 #gunsmithing #1911builders #glockarmorer #guns
If I only practiced what I preached - specifically on this tip. Hardly a moment doesn’t go by without the loss of a precious spring, screw or pin during a detail strip can really ruin our day. How many people out there say they employ a magnetic tray (or at least a tray) to prevent loss of firearm parts? 😫 Well, if your a professional - do as one! Get yourself magnetic tray and save yourself from the consequences of parts loss! If not magnetized, a plastic tray to keep your parts in one spot. #gunsmithing #gunsmith #guns #1911builders
Powers Series 1 Sear Jig seen without the Roller and Guide Pins. While extremely useful for cutting to establish Secondary Sear angles. An untrained person would be much better using abrasive media held to a beveled shim and dragging across the Sears face to establish a clean, slick Sear face. Thereby protecting the factory established angles and engagements. The Powers Series 1 Jig is not for the amateur. With the appropriate sear adapter from zero bottom position to 20 clicks up which is baseline and establishes a perfectly neutral Sear Angle. Further adjustments could be made up or down, making the Trigger pull light or heavy. This takes a certain intuition, judgement, skill and understanding of engagements, most important trigger weight values. #1911builders #guns #gunsmithing

This is the final process in checking our stainless Grip safety. A few more tweaks on the program, then a new set up with a 4up. The others we cut 4 at a time but this was a bit more tricky. #1911builders #1911 #builtnotbought #gunbuilder #shallnotbeinfringed #2ndamendment #patriot #EDC #worldoffirepower #combathandguns #customgun
Suppressor ready and tritium night sights. Happy tactical Tuesday! @1911builders #builtnotbought #suppressor #1911 #45acp #1911builders #2ndamendment #edbrown
More 1911 magazine release buttons heading out for heat treat. These are cut from bar stock and have a lifetime warranty as do all of our small parts. 1911's are for life so build a good one. #1911builders #1911 #builtnotbought #gunbuilder #combathandguns #worldoffirepower #colt #EDC #freedomisntfree #maga #patriot
Some 1911 essentials. A Black Fine Ceramic Stone for Sear or Hammer Hook adjustments, Jack Weigands excellent Extractor Adjustment Tool, Marvels “Ultimate Sear Jig”. The last is Brownells 1911 Mainspring Pin Removal Tool. The Ultimate Sear Tool is better than nothing. I do prefer my Powers Series 1 Sear Fixture. The Marvel Ultimate Sear Fixture is good when the Powers Sear Fixture is too heavy for travel. #1911builders #armorer #gunsmithing #guns
