Yep. Novak Custom. (Built by the esteemed Joe Bonar).

here is what Pete Single said about Joe on 1911forum

"I think Joe was one of the greatest 1911 smiths that ever lived. He was certainly an icon in the pistolsmithing business and an anchor @ Novak’s. Though the years I have done business with many pistolsmiths, Joe was among the finest. I respected Joe’s opinion beyond all others."

If you remember the Springfield "Delta" and Springfield "STI" 9mm single stack clone I posted, this gun came from the same collection.

The owner was a high-level LEO and Distinguished Master shooter who has great taste in guns.

This gun was spec'd by him and built by Joe Bonar at Novaks prior to Joe's untimely death in 2003. It was unfired until a few years ago when it became my backup range gun for IDPA.

Since my primary gun never, ever fails, this gun has less than 500 documented rounds through it.

Slight edge wear, a few storage scratches.

At any rate, this is a very high-quality build that is stone-cold reliable. It kind of makes a Staccato look sad in comparison.
