He was the one that made the "Watchmen" 1911's.
the six inch barrel is nice to see, i for sure want that in the next pistol.... they look much more intimidating

You get an accuracy premium with a 6-inch barrel....but it sounds like what you're after is the gun that's most aesthetically pleasing and looks the coolest. I think you're going to be surprised by the price of some of the higher-end 1911s you're lusting over.

Have you looked at the price on the Volkmann 1911s? Is that in your price range? For well over $2,000, you can be pretty assured that they're going to perform well.

doesnt really have to "look cool" but yeah i dont want something dog ass ugly either, i want something pleasing to my eye but my first concern is useability.... if i cant use the gun and it just "looks cool" then WTF dude, that is why i sold the sig...it looked cool and all but over all it sucked as a useable gun.....

and yes i have seen the price, price isnt an issue

i am married and yes, we have a family owned business, pulls in pretty good profits, so we are not really worried about money, i am thankful for that also, but money is only worth something if you spend it

haha now worries man, there are people like them on every forum, people that get jealous and want to point out other people and make themselves feel better, you will find that they run out of rocks to throw at you when you yourself stop throwing rocks (speaking about myself not you)
