    Just picked this Garthwaite Custom Colt 1918 WWI Reissue up today.
    It was part of the great collection of @War Party.
    It’s been on my radar ever since I first saw photos of it.

    Jim Garthwaite put his mark on this
    Colt 1918 WWI Reissue about 10 years ago, and it’s been boxed up ever since.

    Obligatory pics attached.

    Once I learned @TheCollector was sniffen around, I figured I had
    better pull the trigger.

    Actually I think he told me I
    had a week to either :poop:
    or get off the pot!:confused2:

    Very nice. I also have a Garthwaite 1911 and am hoping I can manage to get a Hi Power before he retires.

    TheCollector loves to see his Addict's friends:

    Brother, if that was my firearm, it would NEVER EVER get shot!!!!! I have plenty of others just to shoot.

    Thanks for the kind words.
    This is one that may not be shot much or at all.
    But is still on the list of my top 5 1911s.

    Very cool! I bought an early one, and it sat in my safe for years unfired. I loved to get it out and just admire her. I finally adopted her out. Yours is stunning! Covet her!!

    I have no idea what the original 2010
    gun cost was, or what today’s
    Garthwaite prices for the same
    work would be today.
    But in either event I would buy it again!
