    I recently picked this up from a friend that bought it at the local gun shop. It was advertised and marketed as a Colt 1911 "Armand Swenson Custom" when he purchased it. I am not familiar with Swenson work but just from the little research I've done I'm not sure he did the work or not. I can see...

    I didn't know where to post this but thought some addict maybe had the need for it. The instructions/paperwork are pretty interesting. https://www.1911forum.com/threads/wts-nos-swenson-ambidextrous-safety.1026627/ @Alpina9 @Karl Beining

    Both came same day from great addicts. Bladeandbarrel and KBG. Threw some new grips on and my collection of 1911 customs just improved greatly! Thanks to both!

    This one of the most unique Swenson 1911's I have examined. Built on a WW2 production Union Switch and Signal 1911A1, this gun was clearly devised as a bespoke target pistol. It has some unique features I have never seen on a Swenson. This gun was built in the very early '70s (pre-cast Ambi)...

This is a typical middle 1970’s “transition” full house Swenson build on a Sistema 1927 (Made in 1950) without the Gardena or Fallbrook address...

    I wish this was my cup of tea and that I had a little extra $$ to speculate, but this local to me gun looks like it might have some Swenson touches and is being offered for $750. I don't know enough to know enough, but some of you might. Good luck, I'm not in the running, but thought I should...

    Hey addicts! A buddy of mine lucked into something I think is unique and pretty badass. He picked it up at an estate sale. We’re trying to figure out what it is and get an idea of what it’s worth. Our knowledge of old customs is very limited. It appears to be a Louis Seecamp DA conversion that...

    Evening All, This gun has been floating on the online listing sites for while now and I recently stumbled upon it and pulled the trigger. Gun was advertised as a Colt 1911 with custom work done by Armand Swenson in 1980 for the buyer who was listing the gun. I've only owned a few custom...
