Quantico and Quantico Hi Cap

Keep in mind that these are merely renderings/prototypes at this point. Hoping to have some on the streets in 2021. Single stack only available in 45 and double stack in 9mm only.

It looks like I'll be in for a double stack 9mm when they start being built. It's okay, I didn't want to keep any of my $$$$ anyway.

I would buy one just for the grip medallion. HA!

No rails, then rails.
No optics.... hmmmm.

I wish optic companies would design an integral rear sight on the back of the optic body to make room and clean up installs. Just sayin

The styling of the guns still has to be somewhat "retro". That's the code that guides me.

The time period from the 1960's to the 1990's is basically the meat and potatoes of the business of customizing 1911's. If a style falls into that range, I feel that it's fair game.

The Chip McCormick polymer grip frame mold was made in 1989 by Ed Minshew. The SA Pro Rail protos were done soon after the intro of the Professional. I feel that these guns fall in line with the retro vibe. RMR's just do not. How about a Weigand frame mount with an Aimpoint Micro?

Yes, 10mm is kinda retro but I don't know anyone with a 10mm 1911 that is nearly as reliable as a 45, 9mm, or 38 super 1911. Feeding, cycling and durability are high on the priority list around here. Caving to fads to sell a few guns doesn't make the list. I'll stick to being authentic and honest about the product instead of carnival barking at you like the rest of the gun biz does.

10mm 1911s less reliable than 9mm ones? First time I've heard that.

Both can be made to work fine, and so it depends on who is doing the building and how knowledgeable / competent / dedicated the end user is. Boutique calibers from mickey mouse builders being bought by rank newbs creates the carnival result when venturing off of the 45acp plantation......

I can respect that, Rob. Itís part of the allure that convinced to plunk down some cash on an Alchemy.

Feeding, cycling and durability. 10mms are not as durable.

9mm 1911s have made leaps and bounds in reliability over the past few years. I can't say the same for 10mm.

That's why I don't build 10mm. I'm kind of a hack and can't figure it out. So, other than saddling people with my crap guns, I steer around it to save both of us the trouble.

This is one of the reasons (among others) I ponied up the money to buy the Classic Carry, and once I get it, Iíll likely order me up a Prime Elite.

And that kind of honesty, and staying with what you do well for your customers, is why you have a solid reputation!

This I like. Gotta keep a good sense of humor about yourself.

Of course I wasn't labeling YOU as a Mickey Mouse kind of a guy. I don't buy my guns from the rodent class....

I was simply pointing out (to the peanut gallery, not to you!) that in order for exotic chamberings to work out the guns need to be built by someone good and operated by someone good. That is all.

The guns can be great or they can be garbage in any of the aforementioned calibers.
