Workin’ Man’s Gun

About seven years ago my friend Eric and I were sitting in my driveway enjoying a nice Nebraska evening. Eric was a local police officer at the time and was lamenting on how he would love to own a gun built by me but just couldn’t come up with the coin on a working man’s salary. He suggested perhaps I should build a line of guns for “regular” guys who were not looking for all the bling and flash of my normal custom guns. Thus the “Workin’ Man’s Gun” was born.

A short while after my conversation with Eric I started building a few of these for friends who wanted an affordable option to a Chambers Custom hand built gun. Internally they are built the same way all my customs are built. Externally they are matte finished with no frills.

These guns offer the opportunity to own a custom hand built gun at the price of a “semi-custom”. They will be produced in limited numbers each year. These guns come with an upgrade sheet that allows the owner to have certain custom features upgraded down the road should you so choose after reWMG 7 Page Pic 1ceiving the pistol.

They come with the following as standard:

~ Standard cocking serrations
~ Stippled front strap and mainspring housing
~ Blended dovetail solid steel front sight
~ CCP rear fixed sight called the Combat Rear Fixed Sight (CRFS for short)
~ 3lb 8oz trigger pull weight
~ Long curved trigger that can be cut to medium or short flat before delivery
~ Match fit Kart barrel and Bushing
~ GI guide rod set upWMG 7 Page pic 2
~ Two tuned 7 round mags
~ Matte finished and blued (stainless will be available in future runs)
~ KFS Sharkskin grips
~ Minimum 100 round test fire

Price in the standard .45acp configuration is $3,995.00 plus shipping to your FFL of choice.
Price for 9mm, .38super calibers is $4,150.00 plus shipping.
Nebraska residents must pay local sales tax.

We do not take deposits on these, however, we do keep an e-mail list and contact clients on that list as the guns are finished. Any guns that are not sold off the e-mail list are offered up as they are completed as either singles or in batches.

WMG’s are built by me and my friend Brandon Buhler who I have personally trained for the past year and a half. Brandon came to me with a background of owning his own weapons and suppressor company which he started a few years after leaving the US Navy where he was a member of the SEAL’s. He is extremely skilled, detail oriented and has a passion for the 1911 platform. He has a strong background in machine skills, a keen eye for detail and understands how the 1911 should shoot and feel.  While all aspects of the WMG builds are not done by me personally, they are inspected and approved by me before the gun goes up for sale. I am sure that in years to come, guns with “BB” on the barrel will be as sought after as the ones with “JC” are today.

Thank you for taking the time to look at what the Workin’ Man’s Gun entails. I hope you found the information informative and helpful.
