Good morning Addicts. As many here know I have been slowly selling some of my “doubles.” So far I have sold doubles of CT Brian, Heinie, Garthwaite, Boland, Novak, Harrison, and Harp. Up next is a very rare (and hard to find) bird. This is an absolutely flawless Colt Gold Cup built by Dr. Steve Woods, who quit building 1911s in the late 90s to become a clinical psychologist. This Gold Cup features hard chrome and a Barsto barrel that is fit tighter than some of the $7000 guns in my safe. The last picture reveals that I have two similar Woods builds so I will let this one go to a lucky Colt collector. No reverse auction on this one fellas. If you want to add a beautiful Colt to your collection, this one is:

WOW! As you know, I am a big fan of Steve's work. He was a collaborator with the likes of Pete Single on many projects and in the early/mid 90's was known as one of the very best pistol smiths in the USA. He quit in 1996. Not too many of his guns floating around. That one will be perfectly accurate and reliable like all of his!

Is it known what Woods did to build? Some of it is obvious from the pictures.. is there a build list/sheet by chance?

I've never handled one of his guns but I know of his quality. He definitely was one of the premier pistolsmiths of the 90s. Good luck with your sale but you won't need it- that is a beautiful gat- definitely a unicorn!
