-I was asked to comment on the work done at " Bill's Custom Automatics ". My first custom built 45 was built by Bill Thompson using a base Springfield Armory stainless 1911. This was followed by a competition 1911. A few years later Tim Thompson moved back from Alaska and a new friendship was born. I had read an article by Sheriff Jim Wilson on the fancy guns of the Texas Rangers which they called their " Barbecue Gun ". This was their fancy gun that was only worn to special functions. After saving my pennies I commissioned Tim to build my own barbecue gun in 45 Auto. The resulting gun was beyond all expectations. It is a true work of art. The fit and finish are as good as or better than any gun I have ever seen in any gun magazine. On top of that it shoots groups that have to be seen to be believed. This gun was followed by a "race gun" chambered in 38 super comp..

Again, the fit,finish, and function were what you come to expect from a Master Craftsman like Tim. Tim builds guns that are works of art and are as much fun to look at as they are to shoot. If you want the best built pistol,rifle, or shotgun that can be found in this country then contact Tim at Bill's Custom Automatics.
