Thanks for your service. I thought that Kimber had a commemorative for the Afghan campaign. Check their website.

Here are some of the finest pistolsmiths in the world:

My style favors Ted Yost but take a look at any one of these guys.

Actions speak LOUDER THAN WORDS

Take a look at on of my favorites, Chuck Rogers.

Scroll down to the 'Sandbox' Model for an example of his work.

I know a group of guys that had some custom work done from Para-Ordinance on a few very nice 1911's.
That looked really good had the Dark Earth and OD Green colors. and their Unit engraved.
Very nicely done.
I can find out more about it if you would like me to. Just shoot me a PM. The shop they ordered them from is here in Wilmington, NC not too far from Fayettenam.
Thanks for your Service.

Looked at Rogers' website, those customs look interesting. Not the prettiest 1911's, Ive just never seen them look like that. Whats up with those grooves cut out of the slide.

It's called slide lightning. The practical application is on race guns. The lighter the slide, the faster the cycle times. The look transfers well to custom work.

You may also want to check out the Colt website. They've made quite a few commemorative 1911's. Thank you for your service and safe home.
