    I got this brand spanking new, non cataloged, Colt Competition 2 tone 38 Super in today. Plan to build it, offering it here as a build to see if anyone wants on board with it.

    I am open to light or full build, email me or PM and we can discuss. Build cost will vary depending on options, But base gun is $900, where it goes from there is up to you. Not interested in selling the gun as it sits now.

    Damn, someone is going to be lucky! I looked for a Colt 38 super like that for years in Kali, all I ever found were the super bright shiny nickel with ugly grips LOL

    Very nice, but isn't that technically a 3 tone? Since we seem to be all politically correct here of late lol.. Silver, gray and black.. haha I'd be excited to see this one come along. for sure.

    Yes Sir, Karl will turn that beauty into a work of art, he got a way with those two tones for sure. And a 38 super to boot. What's not to like.

    Ugh, you're killin' me. Under ordinary circumstances I'd jump all over this, but I can't take anything on until I find myself an income. Out of work at for the moment.

    Thanks. Wasn’t sure. Doesn’t change my end at all. I have a SCG 80 that has the best trigger I’ve ever felt on any 1911 & it’s 80s!

    Is this a LW frame or all steel?

    Jim,

    Sure, on this particular gun, a Light build, at least for me, would be checkering on the front, a magwell, and upgraded safeties. Those mods would run about $650 or so depending on part choices. I would also urge a reliability check and tune up if needed, could bring it up some more. Happy to discuss your likes/dislikes, send me a message. Thanks KGB

    If I didn’t already have Karl building my hi power I would have already jumped on this one. Deal with confidence, Karl is a good guy that will help you through the process seamlessly.
