    Bobtail question.

    Can anyone bobtail an officers model 1911?
    If not why?

    It would really add to the CCW factor. Not to mention the monetary value to the pistolsmith who can pull it off.

    I think Tripp research can do it - SOmeone posted a pic on another site a while back of one, and he stated that he had Tripp do it. But, I also read a post of someone last week who stated that Tripp was not taking anymore custom work after June 1. So, never mind, scratch that idea. I just remembered...

    No, they would buy the parts the same way U would.

    To my knowledge, Ed Brown is the only one who makes that part. U would have to order from them. I doubt their company will work on pistols that are not Ed Brown, but they might.

    If you google "1911 gunsmith" - U will get a bunch of sites that does work on 1911 (I did this search several months ago). I remember seeing a few who had the bobtail listed.

    Bobtail

    Here is a picture of a KIMBER Pro Carry HD II that I bobtailed, to the best of my knowledge , no one makes a bobtail MSH for the officers model--it needs to be a full size grip. I have seen a couple of officers models that the edge had been ground off the frame and the MSH and called a MINI BOB--but it is not a true bobtail..

    Call Alex Hamilton of Ten Ring Precision in San Antonio, TX. If any gunsmith can do this Alex can, as he is a true artisan. Regards, Richard
