    For sale is a Colt Competition Series 45 that has custom work from a few well-known gunsmiths in the 1911 community. This pistol started its life as a blued 1911 with NM barrel and has a low round count.

    Earlier this year, it was sent off to Pete Single for the following work:

    - 25 lpi checkering on front strap and flat of memory bump on grip safety
    - serrated top of slide
    - lengthened slide stop notch
    - grip safety fit flush with gram
    - removed sights and fit rear dovetail for press fit
    - chamfered edges of frame and slide
    - removed major machine marks and bead blasted for final finish.

    After this work was completed, the pistol was dropped off with Alex Hamilton of a Ten-Ring Precision for the following work:

    - tightened slide/frame fit
    - trigger job 4.5#
    - beveled and recessed slide stop
    - installed Stan Chen SI magwell with 25 lpi
    - hard chromed slide and bushing; work performed by Virgil Tripp
    - Black Gun Kote on remainder of pistol
    - reinstall Novak sights included on Colt from factory
    - tune one Colt magazine and test fire

    Once complete, I installed black starburst SGMGrips (aka Larry Davidson). Comes with receipts from Pete’s Custom Shop/Ten-Ring Precision, one Colt magazine, and the original blue Colt hard case. I’ve not fired the pistol since it was completed in May 2020 as it is in pristine condition with the exception of normal prior wear marks on the barrel. I am selling as I have another build in the works.

    Now asking $2195 shipped. Discreet PP F&F payment accepted. Will do a FTF transaction around Austin or San Antonio, TX. More pictures upon request.

    I'd love to update the original post if I knew how to do so. I've reviewed the "How to mark your thread..." post and none of the instructions work for me. As it stands, I am posting another price drop.

    Price revised to $2195

    Brother, I don't usually look at Colt's or Springers but I did yours and it's really awesome.

    This is a Colt that I wouldn't mind owning. The only thing I'd do to it is fix that heavy trigger pull. I'm used to a 2.5# to 3# pull with no pre-travel. I'm a trigger snob!!!


    Gorgeous firearm sir, GLWS!!!
