    Add me to the growing list of satisfied customers. Had a 1911 in need of a really good cleaning and some new night sites and my hunting rifle that needed a little cosmetic work. Done fast and done right!! Brian is awesome and worth the drive from anywhere. Great to talk to as well for those "projects" in your head.

    Thanks Brian

    Greg-

    Did you pick up your weapons on Tuesday? Moved down from NY, right?

    I was the guy who was already in there with Brian, dropping off a Kimber for an overhaul. Sorry I didn't introduce myself, I normally would.

    I can't wait to get that Kimber back. I know Brian's going to do great work on it!

    I'm looking for new sights on my IDPA gun. I think I'll give him a shot. No pun intended. Well, maybe a little ;)

    He does not mill dovetails because he does not have the equipment, hopefully one day he will get the machines to do such things.

    I got my Kimber back today (well, not mine for long- I'm giving it to my brother for Christmas). It looks fantastic! He did a really great job, especially considering the nice hack job someone had done on the rear end prior to my ownership.

    Below is a quick after shot that I shot with my cell phone right after I picked it up- I'll get some better pictures in a few days.

    I too am a satisfied customer of Ott’s gun works.

    I took my Springfield 1911a1 to him because it was having trouble extracting spent casings. Brian diagnosed the problem as a weak extractor and we agreed that the best remedy would be a Wilson bulletproof extractor, I also had the internals polished and a few other modifications made at the same time.

    Brian gave me a quote for the work and told me how long it would take. He completed the work faster than he estimated and for less than the price he quoted.

    I used that pistol to shoot an IDPA meet earlier this month and it ran perfectly.

    I will defiantly be returning to Ott’s gun works for all my future gunsmithing needs

    I think everyone who has ever let Brian do something to a gun has been pleased.

    Take a look at this website - http://www.kensight.com

    Toll-free 1-800-848-4671

    This manufacturer is local to Metro Atlanta (Fulton Ind. Blvd. area). They moved a lot of their production BACK to the USA last summer and have milling equipment on sight.



    (This is in no way intended to to take anything away from the quality of Ott Gun Works. Just recommending another source for sights and other needs that is a local manufacturer)

    Brian has my brand new, never fired, G19 OD in his shop right now.

    He is doing a little "cosmetic" work on it that I thought would look neat.

    I should get it back around the first of January, and I will be sure and post some pics when I get it back.

    He told me his son was coming in from Germany, and was going to spend the holidays with him. I hope they are having a great time.

    I just have to show off some better pictures of the work that Brian did for me on this Kimber that I'll be giving as a gift. I'm thrilled to give this to my brother now, he did FANTASTIC work on this.


    Here's one to show you a good idea of what the color looks like in person, just holding it in available light....

    Got to love the look of the blacked out upper- including the barrel, barrel bushing, etc. I had the upper completely blacked and it looks fantastic!
    [​IMG]

    Looks pretty dang sharp with the VZ Operator grips on it (they're not quite as aggressive as the Operator II's I have on my carry pistol)
    [​IMG]

    Right side of the frame- here you can see the blackout look well.

    Looks beautiful. Times like this make me wish I had a brother.

    Glad to see Ott Gun Works is close to me.

    Brian did work on three different S&W revolvers for me. ALL of the work was great. His most recent endeavor bobbed the hammer on my Model 65-6 and made it DAO for me. I am happy with all of his work. It was well worth the hour drive. :righton:

    I just traded into a Kimber Pro Carry, that started out in black.

    It has some holster wear and is looking "well used", if I decide to keep it, this gives me an idea!!!

    How long does a finish like that last on the frame and slide? Any ideas?

    How much it wears really depends on how you use it, what you carry it in, and how well you take care of it. A range gun would keep looking good for a very long time. A daily carry will show more wear, how much depends on what you carry it, Kydex holsters are harder on finishes then leather and will start to show holster wear before a leather or nylon, but an old dirty leather ot nylon holster will start to act like sandpaper if a bunch of grit is emedded into it. Any of the coatings will last longer than the bluing that is used in today's manufacturing processes.

    Good info.

    I'm probably going to be seeing you soon anyhow, so I might let you have it for a while, and make it all nice and shiny again :D
