Fletcher Custom Pistols, LLC Custom work on 1911 pistols, Browning Hi-Powers and Smith & Wesson revolvers

1911 custom pistols are a specialty in which I take great pride.  Custom 1911 work can be performed on your quality base pistol (Colt, Kimber, Springfield Armory, etc.) or oversize frame (Caspian, Les Baer, STI, Wilson Combat).  Only the highest quality parts are used and precisely fitted.  Services can be performed as listed below or a complete full custom 1911 pistol can be built that is tailored to meet your needs.  All  full custom 1911's are quoted in complete detail so you will know exactly what you are getting.  A tremendous amount of effort is directed into handcrafting every 1911 to give you a truly personalized and professionally fitted handgun.
