I just saw one of his guns on the STI site and couldn't remember hearing anything about him lately. Then I did a search on the internet, and other than an article that mentioned he helped the FBI fix a problem with their LB guns, I could't find anything else on him. Is he still doing gunsmith work?

Last I heard he was out of the business but if you find out differently, let me know because I would love to have one of his guns.

Steve is an old friend of mine who has taken a job at the INS I believe in Pa. I do not believe he is currently taking orders but I have not spoken to him since last Summer.

Mike is correct. Steve is currently working for INS at their Firearms Lab, in Altoona Pa.
I talk to him every couple of months. He's doing fine, and has moved his family to Altoona.
I thought I remember him saying that he was going to get back into doing some work on 1911's again.

I've got the distinct pleasure of having had Steve work on my previous SA Pro Model and my current Baer. He does know his stuff. Excellent work...

Steve Nastoof

Steve was one of the really great pistolsmiths back East. I loved his work and never had one of his 1911's come across my bench for repairs like I have had most of the others. I didn't know him personally but he and I liked to shoot 5.3 grains of Winchester 452AA with a 200 grain semi-waddcutter. This powder reduced felt recoil by 30% and was a very pleasant shooting, accurate load for the 45 ACP. I am delighted to hear that he is doing well and hope this continues for him for the rest of his ride. I still use that good old 452 and am down to my last few pounds but I am going to shoot it up in Cowboy Loads where it does an outstanding job, also. Richard Heinie and Steve Nastoff know how to do it right the first time and I have never seen one of their guns have to go back to the builder.
