I sent a 1911 to Doug the end of December. I think it was around the 28th. I got it back yesterday. Shot it today. Much improved. I paid shipping to him, he shipped back to me. Total price was $240.00

Another happy customer of Doug Jones' work. He has done 3 for me.

It will be tight. If you had been running marginally cycling light loads, you may have to step it up a tad. Just a heads up, so when you get to the range it will not be "set" on single shot. You will like the end result.

I have around 200 or so 200 grain JHP’s that are full load that I have had sitting around the shop! That’s what I intended to use because I think someone else in this post said that it’s going to be very tight. Thanks MJ and Jim for reminding me about that!

I just shipped a wadgun to Doug to be railed and my FFL said if I am sending it for "repair" I don't have to reregister it when it comes back.

It's your gun that you are sending out for work and it will be returned to you via the FFL....why would you need to re-register? That has never been required.

I have always used an FFL to ship a pistol. I have shipped pistols for work and when they returned the FFL said it was law that they had to be re registered ($35 fee). I now use a different FFL that doesn't bone me coming back. Are you saying that I can mail a pistol for repair to an FFL and then he can mail it directly back to me?

A FFL can use USPS to mail a pistol to another FFL for a much cheaper rate than what FEDUP charges. It has to go FFL to FFL both ways, and cannot legally be shipped to you directly. Your FFL will probably charge you the mailing fee both ways, plus may charge you a handling fee, some don’t. As you already are the legal owner of the gun, there no “re-registration” of the gun. A 4473 form does not have to be filled out again.

Ok I got my 1911 back from Doug and it is very tight just like you guys said and by doing this my pistol is back to holding  X at 50 yards! I did it 4 times yesterday! For some reason this particular Remington R1 Enhanced is hands down the most accurate 1911 I have ever owned or shot! I put down my Gold Cup and I haven’t shot it in 3 years! Now to the tooling!!! First off I took pics and sent them to Doug and he instantly said send it back and he would make it right! I appreciate that! First of all the frame came back with a crack in it! There are machining scratches all over it! I paid for him to fit a brand new undersized Bushing. It was honed to fit the barrel perfect but it wasn’t fitted to the slide so that didn’t go well! I almost cried when I saw what my pistol looked like because I am not a rich man I can’t afford 3-5k for a Custom 1911 to get the last 10-15 points I Need! I am speechless hurt and disappointed! I bet this is the first bad review Doug has ever had because I can’t find one anywhere! Everyone bragged on everything he touches. I can’t believe this left his shop

Bill I say everything will be double and triple checked and your pistol will come out perfect! Like I said everyone praises his work. Personally I don’t think for a minute Doug did this work himself! I say someone else had a bad day when they did mine!

The crack is ridiculous, not sure how you could miss that when working on it, I suppose it was cracked when clamping the frame in a fixture but not sure why you'd be clamping on the rails in the first place. Heck it's cracked and has a small chip missing.

So does the bushing fit in the slide or not? It should fit tightly requiring a bit of persuasion from a brass gunsmith hammer.

No I had to turn it myself on a lathe then rehoned it to make the ID true again. The locking lug had to be filed as well. Now the bushing does need some help with my brass hammer and my aluminum bushing wrench. The barrel to bushing is still nice and tight thank god. 

Zane the only thing I can come up with is the they might not have  done a stainless frame before or very often. I swear to god and country this frame and slide looked brand new and like a mirror. There was not a single imperfection on it whatsoever. 

I am trying to take the high road here and not go completely off! I used to have a machine shop and hand built some of the most powerful 4.6 and 5.4 mod motors in drag racing so I know my way around a Bridgeport and Sunnen lathe
I can tell you this would not have come out of my shop!
 

If there is a bright side as long as the crack doesn’t grow which I don’t think it will the frame to slide fitment is perfect and you don’t see what’s inside!

James I had that back when I was racing and building engines. My whole shop was Sunnen. Noooooo very expensive! I actually bought everything used for almost 400,000! Hone, boring, lathe, decking! Man I miss my shop! 1996-2003 timeline

My son said the lathe was a Southern! All I know is I bought everything from Sunnen

Just got my wad gun back from Doug. Very tight but smooth. Even with the slide locked back, no play what so ever. Just ran 200 rounds through it dripping wet with CLP. No malfunctions and everything on call. I was apprehensive but as of now I feel pretty good. Good job Doug.
