    I hate to do this, but need the funds to pay a few things off.

    The base gun is a Springfield Custom Shop, Custom Carry (PC9102) that I sent to Jeremy Reid in early 2018. He changed out almost everything on the gun except the original Nowlin barrel and a few small parts. The gun feels amazing with no sharp edges. The high grip undercut balances the gun well. Truly, would hate this one to go, but with a 1-year old baby = no time and some unexpected family bills, pressures the sale.

    At this time, I'm asking $8,200 shipped and insured. No trades of any kind. I can take payments on it over the next 30 days. I can send more pictures to those interested.

    GLWS. I would sell everything I have before I’d let go of my Reid build.

    That is one of my dream builds. I’ve always liked the “Custom Carry” and thought they could use some tasteful upgrades. Jeremy delivered that and much more.

    I apologize for the delay in answering questions, but all questions should be answered by now.

    To get things going, I’ll lower the price to $7,500 shipped!

    That is countless hours of work dehorning that gun. You will miss that one, because you will be hard pressed to ever find another one. GLWS. You should feel proud—doing right by your family.

    The pistol is a good example of an exemplary build, GLWS. However, allow me to suggest that a small portion of the proceeds are dedicated toward establishing a seed fund for an age appropriate library.;)
