Gunsmithing Question

If anyone will know it's this bunch

Does anyone know of a gunsmith that would round but my Ultra Aegis, nothing dramatic, just enough to knock the point off.

Thanks

The easiest way would be to use an Ed Brown Bobtail Main Spring Housing. They can't convert a 1911 frame to a round butt but any competent gunsmith should be able make it into a bobtail. If you don't want or like the Ed Brown MSH try calling around to your local gun shops and talking with their gunsmiths.

That would be an interesting way to go, it'd be one special Ultra Aegis. If only I could find someone competent and not wanting the gun for a year

Brain Fart, just reread the OP and realized you were talking about an Ultra size gun. You can bobtail or shorten a full size (5.25") frame but not a compact/ultra (4.75") frame. The best you can hope for is rounding it off a little like Kimber does on the Super Carry Ultra.
