Well------I would still send work to him. One of the best----my rifle Smiths make him seem like a 1911 Lover compared to the way they feel about black guns lol. Not that they don't want everyone to have one just that they are ugly.

I can only imagine how some of you guys are about "important things" in life if you blood gets boiling becuase someone made a comment on how they don't like the 1911... and the comment comes off in a joking manner on top of it all.

I shoot my 1911 once or twice a week on a normal basis... It is my favorite pistol... and I am not ashamed or afraid to say that I think it IS a complex design, and it IS more complicated to take apart than most other modern day pistols.

You guys can cry... but I do believe a Glock is FAR easier to take apart than a 1911. Not to mention if that 1911 is tightly fit together.

Mike.

So let me see if I understand this correctly, a famous revolver gunsmith isn't entitled to an opinion and now you don't want to have your revolver worked on by him?

Why not judge him on his merits instead of his opinion on 1 subject?

Err, GC is one of the nation's top gunsmiths, with a customer line out of door and into the next state.

Don't really believe you're one to judge his business practice.

...and he's correct, comparing the 1911 to some other semi-auto platforms.

it's not hard to completely strip a 1911 if you know what you're doing.

lol, you need to chill if a gunsmith has a different opinion than you on a type of gun. The guy is entitled to his opinion just like you, and his opinion being different should not be considered an insult to you. Besides, I love my 1911, but it is a pain to strip and maintenance compared to my Glock.

Also, to whomever said they have never had to use a wrench to pull the bushing off of their 1911, you must have never owned a Les Baer. I not only still have to use a wrench after 3k rounds fired, I had to get another wrench as the one the gun came with got stripped out from use!

I have to agree, in one breath he touts the glock, and than berates the 1911. Which one does he make the most dollars on. The Glock or the 1911. Yes he is an idiot and most certainly stuck his foot in mouth.
Reminds me of a independent MC/Harley tech back in 2000 stopped in my new bike was running a little lean. He loved evo motors, his comment to me was what a peace of excrement, guess what my twin cam is still ruining and the gentleman closed up and no longer in business. so yes he earns the chump of the year trophy. Its a donkey.

No, I've never owned a Les Baer, probably never will. My Colts suit me fine. IMO, a 1911 wasn't meant to be that tight.
BTW, In before the lock

I do not care if this guy has a customer line that goes around the Earth. Statements like that are not professional, and I do not want any gun of mine worked on by someone who is not a professional.

I'm with this guy..

Why does it matter what he thinks of a certain platform? Would, better yet should, it not matter more that his work is quality?

I own a couple Beretta 92's, and I can field strip them in under 30 seconds. Yes, the 1911 is crazy difficult compared to newer guns, but so what..I like them both regardless of takedown procedure.

I don't care if my gunsmith likes one or the other, as long as he can fix what needs fixing and does a good job of it that's all that matters to me..

Opinions are like certain parts of the human anatomy; everyone has one unless it has been surgically replaced by a tube and plastic bag! Sometimes the contents of both the opinion and bag are the same!

Bushing wrench? Oh is that that funny shaped piece of plastic that I need when I have a full-length guide rod to remove?

If I wanted an excellent gunsmith to do revolver work I would not let his opinion on the 1911 cause me to reject him. I have not made the 1911 an idol

I'm just happy to be able to do something with a gun better than a gun smith. If he had to look for his tools to work on my revolver, I may be inclined to become apprehensive.

edit: I used your quote, sir, but did not mean to. I win the award from time to time.
