    I just placed an order with George at Gunslingers yesterday for a Guncrafter Model 1 50GI with the 45 cal. conversion kit. I also ordered the melonite finish with gold bead front and Wilson Combat Ultimate Speed rear sight along with the bobtail. I have done a lot of research on this model prior to placing my order and I am really looking forward to my first trip to the range when I receive it.

    I have looked at a lot of photos of these handguns but have not found many that were bobtailed do any of you have one and could you post a photo ? I do have Ed Browns that are bobtailed so I am familiar with the design.

    Although not a Bobtail, and finished in DLC Ionbond, here is a picture of a pretty cool Model 1 .50 GI with .45 Conversion barrel/mags that I am lucky enough to have in stock right now. Alex sent this off to have it Ionbonded to evaluate the finish. You will love the M1.....pure class.

    Every photo that I have ever seen that Dave has posted is outstanding.

    Jess I see that you work at Guncrafters do you know if there are any photos of a Model 1 with a bobtail that you could post?

    That's the only reason I keep buying guns from him. So, that as soon as he gets them, he can take some good pictures of it for me to post.

    I have one on order with a flush cut barrel, serrated top of slide, undercut trigger guard, Wilson gold bead front and Speedblade rear site, 3.5 lb trigger, flush cut slide stop, ball radius cut naked slide w/out front serrations, and Turnbull charcoal bluing. The wait is a bitch but I know it will be perfect. This will be a gun that gets handed down :)

    I was just talking to Dave about a GCI with Turnbull Charcoal bluing. I can't wait to see yours. It's probably going to cost me money!

    I would like to add the serrated top of slide to my order. I did not know that was available as an option. Do you recall what the cost was for that option?
