    Folks, this isn't a build I ordered (I bought it from a fellow Addict) but had it been, there's hardly a thing I would have done differently. I've taken this pistol out of my safe to sell it several times and every time I change my mind and put it back in. Everything done to this pistol is done very well. Check out the ball cuts, the barrel reverse crown and top of slide serrations - top notch.

    I'm on the verge of several builds coming due and I feel the need to start funding.

    Base gun was a new Colt, and was sent to David Panciotti of Evolution Armory to perform the following enhancements:
    • Ball cuts on slide
    • French border
    • Complete Carry Bevel
    • Flattened and serrated top of slide
    • EGW grip safety blended and fit
    • EGW Thumb safety
    • EGW Slide Stop, over size pin
    • EGW Carry bevel angle bore bushing, with matching bevel on plug
    • Harrison Trigger with Trigger Job.
    • Reverse Crown barrel.
    • Prep, Polish high luster Blue on Flats.
    • Chamfer Slide stop hole
    • Fit Heinie rear sight
    • Nitre blue pins, grip screws
    • Cherokee Hills black dyed Redwood Burl grips (I added)
    I never fired the gun and the original owner stated he didn't either. The only minor flaw I see is a small nick on the frame right above the slide stop.
    Asking $3,300.00 OBO Shipped CC or PayPal, check etc.

    Mark - it has become exhausting trying to resist your offerings on a daily basis! This one is built just right. If I didn’t have a WC in with NHC being built in a similar style i would be contacting you. GLWS!

    Dave Panciotti builds a terrific 1911, just check out the attention and effort in these french borders, for instance. Great build, great builder. Wish I was in a position to help, I sure would.

    Still available folks! Trying to fund new builds coming due, so would like to sell outright as opposed to trades. Thanks.

    Crazy - this gun wouldn’t have lasted 5 minutes 6 months ago.
