Hey Ned,
I was looking at the gun digest book of 1911's and seen some of your incredable work.
You made one gun with an extended base that matched the grips, I think it's your Bowling pin gun(for lack of a better term).
Would you please post some pictures and specs on that wonderful beast.(a price would be nice too,if it's available.

Which book is that? I didn't know about the pics-- I'll have to check that out. Sounds like my pin gun or one I did for a customer. There's a pic or two on mt website-

I have a new page on there with a buncha pics too, BTW, but none with the IV magwell.

Thanks for the headzup on that!

Pic #26 sure is interesting. What do you call that type of metalwork?

Nice work Ned!

I was wondering, what is the reason for flattening the bottom part of the MSH and frame? That seems to be the Opposite of the Ed Brown Wedge. Is it for shooters with small hands or is it an improvement of natural pointing?

Hi Ned,

Liked the new photo page on your website. Especially the LW Commander. Those carbon fiber grips sure do cast a nice color.

I went back and checked, Yep it's one of your guns. What I was calling an extended base they called a funneled mag well. On closer inspection your piece shows up on pages 47,65,71,82 95,114 & 124. A number of pictures say Michigun/Christiansen and on Page # 82 it states "Ned Christiansen,The Master,Follows the checkering of the grip down onto the magazine fullel he added to this 1911" In anouther part he said you welded it on(I don't have a clue).

In a side note, I have never seen Dane Burns,But based on a photo he supplied on another thread it looks like him smiling away on page # 47.

The book is: The Gun Digest Book of the 1911
Written by Patrick Sweeney,(Krause Publishing) ISBN:0-87349-281-1

I'll try to Post a picture but I not computer friendly.
