Derr Precision

HOW DO I GET STARTED?

I DON’T KNOW WHAT I WANT

That’s OK. We work with each client to tailor his or her project to them. We try to get a feeling for what YOU want to accomplish and work to that goal. We have plenty of experience and we are willing to share it with you.  Other things to think about are custom grips, matching blade and matching leather.  Check out our Gallery pictures to give you some ideas – many clients pick and choose from these past projects.

DON’T HAVE A BASE GUN?

Not a problem!  We keep a variety of Colt 1911 in our inventory for you to select and begin your custom build.  If we don’t have the Colt you are looking for we can find one for you to fit your particular needs.  If you have another 1911 platform, we are happy to consult with you.

WHAT WILL IT COST?

There’s no cookie-cutter builds here at Derr Precision.  Each gun is hand crafted, uniquely for you.  We quote out each project once we know what your dream build is.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?

Well that depends on the complexity of the project and where in the batting order you are. Some work services get done weekly and turn around is fast. Some small work can be done while you wait, but that is by appointment only. After 21 years of servicing shooters, we have a good handle on when things can get done and provide updates along the way.

WHAT IS YOUR BACKLOG FOR 1911 BUILDS?

Usually a year or less depended once again what is getting done. Damascus builds can take longer due to the demand for Damascus from Caspian. If a matching knife and holster is part of the project we are at the mercy of those craftsmen and their schedules.

WILL YOU TEST MY GUN?

Yes! Each pistol or revolver in for trigger work and or function issues. We do require clients to provide function ammo or charge them accordingly. Ransom Rest accuracy testing is offered only for Bullseye level guns. All others are tested out of my steady hand.

HOW DO I SHIP TO YOU?

We accept UPS and FedEX, you must check with the carrier for their specific guidelines for shipping a firearm. We return the same way and insure for the value of the finished project.

DO YOU WARRANTY YOUR WORK?

Yes we back all our work and the parts we use are backed by the manufactures who made them. Our motto is “ We aren’t married, but we are now cousins.
