Quote from the May issue of Gun Tests ( the consumer reports of gun mags...)

Before you read deeper into this article, we know of course that you’re wondering how this fairly standard-looking Commander could possibly fetch such a price as the "about $5000" listed a few lines down. We assure you the reasons are not quickly seen, but close examination led us to the conclusion Christiansen didn’t charge enough for what he did. Some of his work can’t be appreciated unless you have a normal 1911 on hand to compare. All of his work was extraordinary, the best workmanship our Idaho test team has seen.Michiguns 45 Commander Custom, about $5000


they quite liked it it seems.... :D

Yeah they kinda liked that gun, didn't they? :D

They were quite right about the sights being sharp though. I made those to "C"'s specs but I coulda left them less sharp. Me of the scarred hands from other stuff being too sharp, me who is usually so focused on making custom guns conform to the hypocratic oath, "Do no harm". Well that's what it came back for.... gonna redo the rear and give the gun a refinish in DLC. They said something along the lines of all my guns from now on geting DLC, that was a miscommunication I guess. Only when specified by the customer.

Congratulations going out to Ned Christiansen of Michiguns for an A+ Rating from Gun Tests Magazine! They could not say enough good things about your work.

I know the custom smiths are featured from time to time in various magazines, it still always excites me to see articles feature work from a 'World Class' pistol smith -
Ned your pistols always make my jaw hit the desk! Keep up the great work, and congratulations again!
