    Austin Behlert custom built 1911 Colt 70 series Combat Commander w/compensator

    $2250 shipped ConUS only

    Excellent example of Behlert’s craftsmanship and custom work. A period piece exhibiting all the options of the time including Pachmayr slide stop and Behlert’s own patented rear sight, compensator treatment and mag release. Bore is fantastic; I doubt this gun was shot much. I’d guess no more than 2-3,000 rounds of lead only. Smooth and tight with an excellent trigger. AND Jack Breskovich grips!! (I bet less than 25% of the readers have ever seen a set much less heard of him or his grips..) 98% with original bluing. There are three light “handling marks” which I couldn’t photograph very well. If you send me your email address, I can send you the full-sized photos and indicate where the marks are.

    Inscribed: CUSTOMIZED BY Austin Behlert

    Payment conditions… I’ll accept US Money Orders, Cashier’s Check or Certified Check only, no PayPal. I’ll ship within one business day of the funds clearing. I will only ship by US Registered Mail. It is infallible. The drawback to RM is that it is slow; it can take 7-10 days to cross the country because everyone in the USPS who handles RM must sign for it. However, with this kind of money involved, I wouldn’t accept a less secure alternative in favor of speed.

    Please PM me for my email and payment address or if you have any questions. I have an additional 5 photos I can send. Thank you for your time.
