This particular gun went from the gentleman for which it was built to another friend who carried it in Kosovo, Somalia and Gulf I. At the time he was one of if not the leading Counter Terrorism analyst for Defense Intelligence. Charlie Wilson built the gun using many of the same techniques that he built match winning 1911s. Hard fit BarSto stainless match barrel, bushing and link, in a National Match slide, carefully fit to a 1943 vintage Government frame. Apparently, PWS had been offered a slug of these frames by the Army and wasted no time in taking them up on the offer.
