    I've been seriously debating the sale of this pistol...I just have too many projects going on right now (I have a few customs arriving shortly, plus we're overbudget on our new house build, and taxes are coming up)...which is giving me acid reflux/heart burn like you wouldn't believe..

    I personally sent a 1953 Colt base gun to Ted Yost right before he left Heirloom Precision. This is a Signature build and no time or expense was spared. Ted Yost meticulously spent over 120 hours on this gun, straightening all the lines and custom fitting every part on the gun. The only parts original to the base gun are the frame and slide. Everything else was tossed.

    * Rear and top slide serrations
    * Gold line front sight
    * Short solid trigger 3.5#
    * Ball endmill cuts
    * Reverse crown - barrel
    * 30 lpi front & rear strap
    * Yost weld-on magwell
    * Custom fitted Walnut grips
    * Kart 38 Super barrel

    I have the original build sheet, two Wilson mags, Heirloom Precision box, and receipt. At this time, I am asking $8,100 shipped and fully insured with signature confirmation to your FFL. Please keep in mind, I have a lot more into this build than the price I am asking. Please keep low-offers to your self. I will gladly keep it, if it doesn't sell within two months.

    I will consider a partial trade from my list, but I definitely need some cash that will help offset some recent cost.
    * Scar 17
    * GAP, APA, SAC, Spartan, Desert Tech rifles in 308, 6.5CM
    * Benelli M4
    * Gap 10 in 308/6.5CM
    * JP LRP in 308/6.5CM
    * Larue PredatOBR/OBR 7.62
    * Schmidt & Bender, Premier, Hensoldt, etc., FFP, mil/mil scopes

    * No handgun, bikes, watches, cars, etc in trades.

    **Please excuse the lint, dust, finger prints, and poor photography skills, the pictures truly do not do the pistol justice.

    Thank you all.

    BTW, she's new, unfired. The frame has Ted Yost name engraved. The grips are signed by Ted Yost. This is a mid-late 2015 build.
