I am not buying this gun, but I do find it to be interesting.
It is a 2006 build by Ted on a caspian slide and frame. The gun is marked Yost Custom but the build sheet says Yost-Bonitz.
It's a nice represent of Ted's earlier work without some of the polish an refinement of his current builds...
Not many pics for such an expensive 1911 but I’m sure an interested party could request more pics.
I have no affiliation with the seller just passing this along to anyone who might be looking for a Yost.
In the big city this week with my 4-Hers for Texas 4-H Roundup and picked up some acrylic plates for the Mrs for her mesquite wood earing business.
They work well for photographing Ted's masterpieces as well.
Not bad for hotel room lighting...
Received my Hi-power Ted worked his magic on from Mr. Lear off the classified page.
Like my 2 1911s it is a thing of beauty.
A range trip is definitely in order.
I have never felt the need to go for a HP before due to not liking the 9mm in a 1911, even though I was mighty fond of Ted's work...
I was perusing his Facebook page looking over his hi powers and she was apparently looking over my shoulder and asked what I was doing. Commented I was looking at Ted Yost Hi powers to go along with my 2 Yost 1911s(thank God she hasn't asked me what they cost). She asks some questions than...
Pictures speak for themselves, finished in March of 2021 less than 3 magazines have been run through the gun.
$5,350 shipped and insured
The build sheet states blue nitre' accents and that's an error --Ted said he'll fix that.
In all my scouring of this forum for Ted Yost builds I haven't found a thread that consolidates builds.
So here you go, post em if ya got em.
May 2021 Pinnacle build
Talo Colt WW2 45 acp
Colt Delta Elite 10mm
I'm not sure if anyone follows him on Facebook but his stuff is the pinnacle of gunsmithing IMHO
I didn't even know anyone had square trigger-guarded a Hi-Power before nor had I seen a magwell on a Hi-Power
Recently received the second of a pair of Pinnacles Ted Yost built for me this last year. Both are 9mm configured identically except for the finishes. The first to arrive was the blue one, the hard chrome recently arrived. Having issues with my "good camera" and strobe so I snapped these with...
Well, my buddy @William Lear got his Yost Hi-Power last weekend and today was it's inaugural range day. I'll have to say I have very little BHP experience but it feels like it was made for your hand. The ergonomics are incredible and with it being Yost-ified, right down to the grips it's just as...
Nice 30 minute conversation with Mr Yost this morning finalizing my 1911 build. Ted was a gentleman as always, which I imagine gets somewhat tiring when you tend to talk to a bunch of guys who all to some degree think they are designing something unique and special while to Ted it is just...
What do you guys think of putting a retro hammer on my upcoming Yost build. Most Yost pics I've seen have a Delta-style hammer with an occasional ring hammer thrown in for good measure.
Perhaps something like this Harrison:
22 years ago when I graduated High School, I received this King Ranch lock blade as a graduation gift. I have absolutely loved it. The feel of the bone handle, the weight of the knife itself, I have always loved to carry lock blades, and I particularly love carrying knives that the blade and...
As I am waiting for this heirloom gun....I was curious if anyone has run across any articles about Ted or his builds?
I have an American handgunner from a number of years ago that had an article about a pistol Ted built for the author but haven't seen much else.
Still can't believe the Custom...
Kicking off the requested “Guns of Gunsite” Old school thread which I hope Addicts find interesting from a historical standpoint, as well as post some pics of their guns including all the 1911 GSP and 1911 variations that were built within the Gunsite Gunsmithery (Orange, Grey, and current) as...
Family has deep roots in Arizona (and that land before they called it Arizona). Growing up I'd spend weekends working my dad's tables at gun shows. By that time my favorite pistol was a 1911, which my dad would let me end a range session by helping me grip his Colt and let one or two rounds off...
I went over this morning and spent 90 minutes with the GOAT, talk about easy going, down to earth and just the best guy in the world, Ted is it.
I left my unfired 9mm Commander with him and he's shooting for Q1 of 2022 about 18 months which ain't that bad.
About 90 days out (that's a year from...
By philosophical, I mean that I am not currently seriously considering such a purchase, but a recent conversation on here about yosts got me pondering. I have the guns in my collection that if I sold a 6 guns depending on which guns, it would finance such a purchase. This would include colts...
