    Up for sale out of my personal collection is what can only be described as the nicest Kings on the planet. This Kings 1911
    by Arnold Capone (circa 1979) features Kings grip safety, Kings bushing, Swenson Ambi safety, K frame S&W sight, high polish flats/matte rounds, shod in American Holly grips with gold medallions by John Culina. The bluing on this gun is absolutely exquisite. There isn’t a ding, dent, or scratch anywhere on the gun. I bought it as unfired, and since owning it, I have put exactly 3 magazines through it. I therefore think it’s the nicest survivor on the planet. I’m not in a hurry to sell this one. I will list it on Gunbroker on Saturday but before I do that, I am offering here to my Addict brethren for:

    Thanks Greg — I really have a thing for these old Kings builds and I don’t think I have ever seen one this nice.

    Wow. I actually gasped a bit when I first looked. Those Kings builds really tug at the heart strings a bit.

    The profile on that mainspring housing is totally unique as well. I've never seen one similar. It's definitely a modified arched.

    Had three — going down to one. Open to trades on really nice Dinan or Chow.

    In the history of custom 1911's, Kings was there at the very beginning of the Big Bear leatherslap matches with Jeff Cooper at the helm. They were ideally located at the nexus of practical shooting in So. Cal and had super talented,old school craftsmen (like Jim Hoag who was their top gunsmith from 1960-1972). Kings was a legendary outfit-one of the first top shops and makers of fine custom parts. The crown means quality! This is a great gun!

    Stunning! Too new dammit. The Old Guard knows, but for the FNG's, Mark is great to deal with.
