Minnesota Pistolsmith?

Anyone recommend a pistolsmith in the Twin Cities area who does good basic work on 1911?

I've had good luck at J&S Guns in Lakeville. It's just off of I35 at Co Rd 50. Be careful of Jeff, though. He's a true salesman!

I know of others in the area, but I don't have any experience with them.

Good luck.

I would highly recommend Ahlman's in Morristown. Talk to George about 1911's. I just got my Colt Defender back - lots of work - and it is awesome. Should have pics in a day or so. I also bought a used Kimber in a private sale that has had a lot of work by Ahlmans and it is top notch. My dad also got some guns reblued over the years there and he is very happy with them. They've been around forever and a lot of smiths simply send there stuff to Ahlman's. Cabela's does.

It's south of the Twin Cities in the middle of no where, but well worth the drive. Great shop too. Feel free to email me with any questions.

J&S in lakeville

Be careful of them I don't know who the smith they used to use was but he ruined the sear and hammer on my springfield 45 took it in for a basic trigger job and had to take it back three times...3 stikes as far as I was concerned took it to some one else....Bills gun shop..they put in the required new parts but I was back to needing a trigger job.....on the up side I have heard good things about "gunstop west" in St bonifacious..

Minnesota gunsmith

Rick Johnson, Redline Custom, in Balaton, MN (south west Minnesota) does good work. He did a reliablility job on my Kimber and it is flawless. He also does a lot of custom work and builds a lot of custom pistols for some of the top shooters in the midwest.

45 cal smith

I have had good luck with a smith in the north central part of mn.Conley Janssen. He has built a rep with Detonics and other short slide 1911's, but can do full size as well. He lives in Deer river. Straightforward and knowledgeable
