    I only have my one Dan Wesson which I paid $1,100 for it. Still kind of pricey compared to those in the $600-$700 range but worth it. The fit (way tight to a stupid throw it down the range extreme) and finish are great! I just wouldn't spend $6,000 on a 1911 unless it could whistle Dixie. This 1911 is accurate accurate and no issues. What would another $5,000 buy me but lining someones pocket to the utmost?

    I do not regret spending the money to purchase my Les Baer Thunder Ranch Special, back around the year 2000.

    I want to add my voice to the chorus, and assert that Kimbers are NOT high-end! They do like to advertise like they are high-end. I am not familiar with DW.

    gun school?

    check and see if you have a gunsmithing school anywhere close.
    I live in Oklahoma...we have Murray State College with a really nice program..many of our grads end up in federal service or with arms companies...
    find a school and go to the armorer's class first..then to the custom classes, often offered in levels...
    AND THEN, you will ber able to build your own 1911.
    Murray Statre College used to offer summer courses...stay in local dorms...
    can get NRA "grants" or "scholarships" too...and take courses in a variety of machine tool classes thru accuring rifles, 1911, etc..check it out at MSC and the local gunsmithing school nearest you!!!
