I think Frerking services Bob Marvels 22 conversion or makes parts for them.

Tale of two Marvel's

FCW bought Marvel Precision, they sold the Bob Marvel designed 22 Conversions. 

Bob is teaching custom 1911 build classes see info on the Nelson Custom Guns website HERE: Bob's 1911 class info

Marvel Custom Guns is Al Marvel or should I say Al Marvel IS Marvel Custom Guns.  http://www.marvelcustomguns.com/about_us.htm

Probably good this Marvel is closing/retiring.
I sent an e-mail through their site a couple weeks ago asking for an inventory check and a total.
I waited a week, called the number on the site, no answer, no machine.
I waited a day or two and called back, this time a gentleman answered. I asked about the products I was interested in... he said send an e-mail through the site, I said I did. He said I don't remember it, send another one.
That night I sent another duplicate e-mail........still crickets !

I feel that Bob Marvel was more of an innovator than businessman and that he contributed a lot to the mechanical knowledge base of this sport.
Hopefully it continues in some form.

Same here re a phone call and following email.  I don't need the HS 4.5" rail that much.  (darn it)

I sent him a check and order form for my 2nd Victor rail and some magazine holders at the end of November.  I received them 2 weeks ago.

Ok, guys, there is:

Bob Marvel- reknown gunsmith and developer of a .22 conversion, currently teaches 1911 build classes. I had him for a teacher, helluva guy, that has forgotten more than most will ever know about a 1911.

Marvel Precision- A business that produces the .22 conversion, not owned by Bob Marvel (long story involving lawsuits), it was sold and is currently owned by Travis Frerking

Al Marvel- gunsmith and owner of Marvel Custom Guns, the fella that this thread refers to.

I mailed a check this past Monday for two scope mounts, and I received them in the mail yesterday. I’m glad I was able to get the order fulfilled. I was not expecting such a quick turnaround. I don’t think the check has even cleared yet.
