Default Re: Jerry Fisher, Gunmaker

Barry,
There was a gunmaker/gunsmith down here in Miami named Steve Fisher, I wonder if he could have been a relative.

There is a lot of distance between Miami and Big Fork, so I doubt there is any relation.

Steve Fisher was one of the best 1911 gunsmiths in Florida, he could make any 1911 sing.

He built several competition 1911's for me and each one was a nail driver.

His guns were so well tuned that I could put a 5 gal bucket next to my shooting station and 70 - 80% of the shells coming out of the gun would land in the bucket. It sounds incredible, but it is true.

Anyway, thanks for the post, this work is beautiful and an inspiration.

Tim C
