    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: https://shop.harrisoncustom.com/hd-130-retro-ignition-set Thoughts?

    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...

    Looking for a 1982 government with a 70s slide. Doesn’t need to be NIB as it will be sent to Yost. Thank you

    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...

    This beautiful Ted Yost / Heirloom Precision Colt has been the centerpiece of my collection for years, but I’m getting older and selling it down so it’s time to move on. No need for a flowery description, the quality of Yost and Heirloom is well known, and the pictures speak for themselves. See...

    Following up on my introduction post about my vintage Yost Gunsite pistol https://www.1911addicts.com/threads/old-school-fighting-pistol-my-yost-built-gunsite-1911.63279/...... I thought I’d show you the Gunsite Gunsmithery catalog from 1993 which I saved; this is from the Ted Yost (of Estate...

    Question? I just picked up a nice 1943 Remington Rand. Nice used condition, complete, numbers and markings are correct. It is a clean, used WWII pistol. Would you send it to Turnbull, Yost or another top name smith for restoration or leave it alone? Would restoration by a top smith ad value or...

    Well guys, I've got another stunning example of the consummate model 1911 by Ted Yost. Every bit as beautiful as last month's Yost, even crafted at the same time by Ted. The only substantive differences being that this one has a magwell instead of a round butt and this one was made in 1970 -...
