We have been contacted by a number of people from this forum, so we thought we should introduce ourselves and become a more active participant here.

We’ve been working with Bob Marvel for many years to update and refine his original design. As a result, we believe we’ve produced the best 1911 – 22 conversion on the market.

We are a new company, and don’t have an advertising budget, so we rely completely on word of mouth for our sales. With that in mind, we have set aside 10 units and would like to make a special offer to the members of this forum.

We will discount the cost of these 10 units $100 (Your choice of configuration - Sight Rail or Scope Rail, Standard or Threaded Barrel). To take advantage of this offer, contact me via PM at Nelson Custon Guns or via email at larry at nelsoncustomguns.com.

So there you go, want to take advantage of this offer, go for it!
