Merry Christmas Addicts.

Folks, this is a recent build (couple months old), one of the nicest ones I've ever seen either in person or in a photograph by arguably one of the best smiths alive. Ever since I got it two months ago I've been struggling to decide if I should sell or not. Well, with a heavy heart, decision made.







Colt Series 70 base gun dating to 1980, a year that marked my reaching voting age, and what a great election year that was. I sent Ted two .38 Super base guns and this is the one he chose. He reluctantly agreed to put a magwell on it, and agreed to put a domed platinum (not gold) bead front sight on the gun.

Ted Yost "Pinnacle" Build List includes:
  • Welded and refit frame and rails
  • Lines straightened
  • Yost Professional Grade rear sight
  • Bar stock extractor fit and tuned
  • Fit Kart Match Grade .38 Super ramped barrel
  • Precision chamber and crown
  • Serrate rear of slide at 50 lpi
  • Bar stock beavertail grip safety, shortened tang
  • Hand checker front and rear at 30 lpi
  • Bar stock magazine catch, fit and serrated
  • Best quality trigger job with medium trigger
  • New pin set, all new springs
  • Complete dehorning of all exterior edges
  • Master grade blued finish on slide and frame
  • Nitre-blued pins and screws
  • Flattened and serrated slide top in curved arrow pattern
  • Yost proprietary Platinum bead front sight .125" ("domed")
  • Fit firing pin stop to slide and extractor
  • Fit beveled barrel bushing to slide and barrel
  • Ball cuts on front of slide
  • EGW bar stock 9mm/38 Super slide stop
  • Fit flat mainspring housing
  • Yost proprietary integral magazine well
  • Bar stock plunger tube
  • Bar stock strong side safety, narrowed and dehorned
  • Fit bar stock ejector
  • Satin matte edges with hand-polished flats
  • Shortened grip bushings with regulated screws
  • Handmade English walnut stocks, finished in hand-rubbed oil
  • Price $9300 Not looking to trade on this one

That is one of the most perfect rehabs/upgrades I have seen at any price. I am sure it will be loved where ever it may be.

Wow... almost prettier than boobs. Almost. Definitely one of the nicest shooters I’ve ever seen.

First let me say what a beautiful example of the craftsmanship that Ted puts into his builds, and what a unique example this one is.
Second, thank you for choosing to display and offer for sale this gun on this forum.
Third, I appreciate the opportunity to see so many fine pistols and pieces of 1911 history that are on and have been on display here.
Carry on!
