    Addicts up for sale again is the coolest gun TRRK TRADING has ever had in inventory. This gun arrived in our inventory back in May and sold immediately to one of our best customers. He just traded it back as he said he can't bring himself to shoot it. The gun is still new in bag and completely un-fired.

    This gun is a complete Alex Zimmerman custom build. I was built, fitted, test fired, tuned and completely assembled by Alex Zimmerman for his personal collection.

    Custom builds by Alex are very rare as Alex still owns most of the guns he’s ever built.

    As the owner of Guncrafter Alex is involved with and touches every gun that Guncrafter builds but he does not personally build all Guncrafter guns. This is a gun that Alex built for his personal collection. It is an absolute museum quality - presentation investment piece that is built as a Renaissance/HOSS.

    H.O.S.S. stands for heavy Operating Shooting System. HOSS was invented by Alex and all of the HOSS improvements make the individual parts of the 1911 stronger, and by doing so increases not only the longevity but also the overall reliability of the pistol.

    Key elements of the HOSS are:
    • HOSS Heavy Barrel-chamber and barrel wall thickness increased by 56%, and beefed up barrel feet by 65%
    • HOSS Slide Stop-33% increase in width, to .250
    • HOSS Extractor-33% increase in width, to .200
    • HOSS Plunger Tube-4 post, thick walled, made from 4130 Chrome Moly Steel
    • HOSS Barrel Link-increased width by 22%, made from hardened steel
    • HOSS Barrel Bushing-increased thickness by 56%
    • HOSS Ejector-Ejector post more than double the size of standard cross pin
    This gun is on par with what you would except from the finest 1911 builders in the world. For people who are not familiar with Alex Zimmerman he is an absolute legend in the industry. Alex used to be the head of research and development at Wilson Combat. Many of the patents that Wilson Combat owns were developed by Alex. Alex was also instrumental in helping other custom shops and builders establish themselves in the industry.

    The gun will include a signed letter of authenticity from Alex and also check out the signature on the test target. Pretty cool...

    Price $7,999

    I certainly understand the reluctance to shoot that piece of art. On the other hand with the build specs it was meant to be shot. A lot. Absolutely beautiful piece. IMO he struck a perfect balance with the amount of engraving. In your hand I know it is even more impressive.
