Anyone know a good/great 1911 smith in the NW Suburbs. I used to go to the Gun Doctor in Roselle. Is he still THE guy to go to??

I’ve had good service at Done Wright in Crystal Lake. http://donewrightgunrepairllc.com/

1911........Much faster than 911

Gun Doctor in Roselle for sure.
Haven't heard anything about him being out of business.

He did a few Wilsons for me in the past 4 years, but its been almost 2 years now!

Good Luck.

+2 for Glenn.  I won't let anyone else touch my guns.
