    As you all know, I don’t sell 1911s, I just don’t. So while this is hard, I have to give up a few to chase down a dream (S&W Registered Magnum). That dream is going to cost me $12,000 so in an effort to stay married, a few 1911s have to fall on the sword. This Benchmark was custom made for me by Rob to exacting standards. The fit, finish, and lines are simply flawless. This build was $3600 but I will sell to my addict brothers for:

    3-2-19 $2900 shipped
    3-3-19. $2800 shipped
    3-4-19. $2700 shipped
    3-5-19 $2600 shipped
    3-6-19 $2500 shipped

    Good choice in a grail revolver. Post pictures when you get it. Several of us here have R. M.'s.

    Smith & Wesson made the first .357 Magnum in the mid 1930’s. They were all special orders and came with a certificate of authenticity signed by D.B. Wesson. I once owned an extremely rare version, possibly one of a kind, that went at auction for $27,500. They are very highly desired by collectors.

    I had no idea RMs were trading for that much nowadays. I wish you luck on your sale and that is one heck of a gun.

    Depends on which Korth we’re talking about. Ratzenberg Korth built by a little German guy named Willi? Absolutely. Lollar Korth with a bird painted on the side? Not a chance in hell.
