I'm going to be furloughed for a couple weeks coming up. I'm sure I will find the time to put some work into a retro build that is largely inspired by Mr. Hoag.

Looks like earlier reports of his demise were premature.

I just discovered we share birthdays by reading his obit. He had it quite a bit longer than me. Rest in Peace.

Jim built several guns for me way back when. My wife and I would visit him and Matthew at the shop and talked for hours. Matthew was in high school at the time and Jim would pick him up and they would go back to the shop in the afternoon. He will be missed. Great guy and one of the first wave of custom builders and innovators.

One of my best friends had a Jim Hoag full-house gun. I loved that gun and always wanted it and then he sold it without telling me. I think the abbreviated grip-safety tail that Hoag did is the cat's meow.

Jim did a full build for me about 15 years ago and it's still one of my favorite 1911s. He was one of the last of that generation of pioneers building custom 1911s, I'll miss him.

Here is a early commander he built.
I bought it a few months back from Collectors Firearms.
The gun is built like a tank.
It's so tight you think that it's not going to run, but it runs fine.

He truly will be missed. He was a great gunsmith and better friend.
