    anyone order from this site? if so, were they cool to deal with? i know it's hilton yam's, but i still want to know if it's a good place to order some 1911 grips before i go plugging in my credit card number.

    I've ordered a few tools from them on-line and had no problems. Everything worked as expected, and IIRC shipping and delivery were prompt. I'd buy on-line from them again.

    According to their web sight they only have 59 items for available for sale. Either they are just starting up or are ready to fold up, makes me not want to pony up.

    they are primarily a custom shop that builds high end 1911s for hard use. Hilton has a day Job as a FBI SWAT member. he's a little OCD about the parts that come out of his shop and bear his name.

    i didn't even know they had that many parts for sale...he caters to a niche market. his first product was the 10-8 rear sight for the 1911 and it was cutting edge when it was introduced. i was surprised to see how his line has expanded in such a short time...i'm glad to see that he is one of the first to carry a replacement trigger for the Springfield EMP

    The website purposely sells very few items. It isn't meant to be like Cabellas or TAPCO...
    The purpose is to sell extremely high-performance accessories and sometimes firearms.

    Hilton designs or has significant say in the products being offered, and actually refuses to add his name to mass-market items that get pitched at him.

    I have purchased from them for years and have always received my orders promptly.

    I agree with 9mmepiphany that I wouldn't see that as an issue. It's a small and highly specialized operation.

    it's like a local farmer's market and a walmart. Both have good products but the farmer's market is usually a lot more friendly and customer service oriented.

    10-8 U-Notch rear sight & magazine base plate S&W MP9.
    Quality as opposed to quantity seems to baffle some of those among us.;)

    are you forgetting that the 10-8 parts are also sold through distributors?
    also if they "are ready to fold up" would a 1911 maker like Ed Brown use their sights on a Limited Edition gun or keep them in stock as an option?

    i have 10-8 triggers, sights, and tools and like them.

    thank you for all you input, my friends. i decided to get these VZ one's instead. sounds like 10-8 is a good place to go to for future 1911 parts purchase though ;)

    i got these VZ Recon G10 grips:
