I am currently experiencing a situation that caused me to wonder if my usual gunsmith has poor customer service or if I am just being impatient. It all started when I ordered a compact 1911 (3" 9mm)...

If I do have to get them milled, what should I expect to spend? Would a gunsmith do it cheaper if I bought the sights through him? I'm in NH if that makes a difference.

My only complaint with a 4" is that it isn't really that much smaller than a full size government. The reason I'm so hung up on the 3" is because of how much smaller it is.

The EMP was actually the gun that opened my eyes to a 9mm compact 1911 option. I would love to own one, but like you said, it's a bit on the pricey side for me!
