It's not right!

I just read the issue featuring the Chambers Custom Mirror Image Duo on the cover (March/April 2012). How dare you tease this left-handed shooter with the likes of a left-handed 1911! When I finished the article, I found that the gun is not really being produced. I've been pining for someone to make a 1911 leftie for years. I thought the wait was finally over. I love the platform, but have grown disgusted with right-hand-specific wares. I mean, it's the 21st century, right? Though wrong-handed, I have purchased 1911s to satisfy myself, but the quality of that hardware was a major disappointment. Are you listening Geneseo (Springfield Armory)? Are you listening Yonkers (Kimber)? I'm waiting for someone to really reinvent the wheel and make an evolutionary, ambidextrous, double-stack descendent of the 1911 (STI, are you listening?). Somebody please build a functioning, non-custom, left-handed 1911 and I'll buy it. I know it won't be cheap, but I'll buy it. I can't be the only one.
