Today I was calling around trying to find some Ruger SR1911's for customers when a guy walked in and asked if he could put a gun on layaway. He started to open the box and I immediately saw it was a 1911 and started to grin and become interested. He said the gun was given to him by a family member who passed and along with it had a value attached that read $3200. I had no idea what this gun was and thought it was just a random build until I started taking the gun apart. I removed the SS and in caps read "NASTOFF"!!! I had heard the name before and recognized it, but it wasnt until I did some quick google searching did I really learn about this gentlemen. This is a Nastoff Supercomp in .38 super and with it was also a fitted Colt commander size slide. The whole gun is hard chromed except for the SS which makes me think that the original possibly broke and was replaced?? From everything I read, the general consensus is he is about #5 on the most sought after builds (unofficially of course). So my dilemma, do I scoop it up and put it away for $1600? Im more of a shooter than collector and it wouldnt really fill a role in any of the sports i shoot or do i let the deal go by and allow the store to make some change off of it?? Ill get to the pics before people get bored! This gun is awesome! The trigger breaks at 2 3/4 lbs! And it is really cool to see a gun built so well from the 80's!! I have seen some better production guns then a lot of the older built customs. It has a bar sto comp barrel, the original swenson ambi TS, king GS, S&A magwell... It is a beauty!! What to do???
