    Due to financial needs I am doing something I never thought I would do.

    I have for your consideration a Jim Garthwaite Custom Colt Limited 1918 WWI reissue.
    Those of you familiar with Jim's work will recognize it.

    The base gun is a Limited production (only 4000 made,)
    Colt 1918 WWI reissue, and is in and of itself something
    many of you would be happy to own.
    Combined with the masterful touch of the
    late Jim Garthwaite, this is a unique build,
    and should be in the hands of a 1911 collector.
    It is complete with original blue box and has
    documentation in the form of copies of the
    hand written build sheet Jim sent with the gun.
    I'll include pics and will let the build sheet,
    written in Jim's own hand explain the work that was done.

    This Jim Garthwaite Custom Colt is offered at $5499.
    I will split shipping and insurance with the buyer, as insurance will not be cheap.
    Payment is by PP Friends and Family, or USPS MO, or Certified bank funds.
    No trades at this time.
    Serious consideration will be given to serious offers.

    The first "I'll take it" followed by a PM to confirm will win the prize.

    Thanks Dave.
    This is one of those things that doesn’t need to sell.
    Either way someone will have a timeless piece of history
    by a master of his craft!
    And if that is me, then I win!

    Too bad I can't buy every gun I want 'cause you'd already have my money.
