    This gun feels just super in the hand, it is a pretty mild build with just enough done to make a great, usable, and reliable piece out of it.

    A Match Bushing was fit, Tall Rear sight fitted in the original rear dovetail. Front sight dovetail cut, with Custom red ramp machined in the face. Medium Trigger fit, all premium ignition parts, yields a superb trigger. A Beavertail nicely fit to the frame, also serrations added to the front for extra purchase with a high cut under the guard. Gun has a gentle carry bevel to relieve any sharps. Thumb safety upgraded, Ramp and throat worked for reliability.

    This pistol has been here a few weeks, and initially I planned to pretty it up a touch before bringing it to market, but in true Addict fashion. . .. I bought more 1911s, so, offering it at a very affordable price as is or I will put it in line for the additional work I had planned if the buyer wishes.

    Was going to add:
    -Yost Gold Line front sight
    -Novak or Kings thumb safety
    -Flat Serrated MSH, blend to frame, slight round butt
    -Polish frame and slide flats, have any light marks retouched by engraver
    -Reblue
    -Colt Medallions in the grips

    This package would have added about $900 to the price

    As it sits------ $2499 Shipped (Rare Milt Sparks SS3 NOT included at any price :) )

    Milt Sparks Archive Collection's SSIII example isn't even as nice condition :) Find another in Cordovan color, I'll wait :grin::grin: Blessed that a good friend and Client allowed me to acquire it from his collection.

    If my wife had not called with truck problems three states away, I would be saying those three little words right now. Just know that I am silently cursing and pacing. If someone doesn't pick this up POST HASTE, I will be VERY surprised.
