    Off to the range and one of these is not coming back with me! Take a guess. Sometime ago I sent a Colt Railgun to Jason for a build and my spot is coming up and I have decided I no longer want a Railgun built as I no longer carry with a weapon mounted light (I Prefer offhand light techniques)...

    Every gun has challenges... some can be unique and others routine. These challenges and variables from gun to gun are what keeps everything interesting with the end result being to meet and best the hurdles a project might present. This gun had some of those challenges, both unique and...

    My love for building on Colt base guns knows no bounds. While the current production Series 70 Government Models are likely the best base guns Colt has every produced, many of the ‘70’s era guns can present challenges and at times a seemingly limitless amount of hurdles for a custom builder...

    I’m genuinely lucky in that much of what I do is building that special something for each customer. Whether it’s a two-tone Government Model or a classic blued and ivory stocked pistol, it’s the thing that embodies each customer’s idea of perfection or scratches an itch in just the right way...

    I love my job... I get to walk into my shop each morning to play with guns and build cool stuff. I also get to shoot a lot... and I get to shoot everything I build, a lot. I’m never really sure what part is better, the banging, scratching, cutting, machining, and working on the guns or the...

    This Two Tone Heirloom has only been fired once. I have shot 5 magazines of premium federal ammo. I hate to sell this , as it one of my favorites.
