This old Guncrafter No Name chambered in 38 Super is the “Greatest Ever!” Mohamed Ali used to claim he was the Greatest Ever! Well I have to tell you, my old No Name holds the title in my safe! I had an opportunity to shoot the old girl this morning, and she still holds the title. I’ve owned many semi custom 1911s, and I’ve never owned one with the craftsmanship, and accuracy of my Guncrafter. Those that own one, know exactly what I’m trying to convey. Those that don’t own one, someday may know what I’m saying. I’ve had this 38 Super for approximately three years, and couldn’t be more pleased. The slide to frame fit is exactly what you would expect from a semi custom. Overall, fit finish, and craftsmanship is Outstanding! Thanks for taking a look!

I had a 9mm GI Bobtail that was flat out the most accurate gun I had ever owned and somehow I sold it :( I'll end up with another one down the road, I'm sure ;)

I Liked this Hellcat so much I bought it twice.:eek:.o:
The first time from Jess @TheWichitaGunClub in 9mm.

The second time from @TheCollector whom I had traded it to.
This time it came home with a newly installed 38 Superb barrel.:)

Very nice Ed!
GI makes an awesome pistol.
My No Name .38 Super/9mm is the nicest 1911 I own... at this particular time and place in space.
Thanks for sharing!

Next to my NH Falcon, this unique built Guncrafter 9mm is my favorite 9mm. It is so very well built & fitted. It's a single stack blacked out with a Battle Crown, Lightening Cuts, and several other nine options. It's again really well fitted and GI gave me a quote to add/hand fit a gold 38 super fluted chamber barrel to it for $625.00. It sure looks good with just black grips as an all blacked out firearm.

Your 10mm is the real deal. And that Superb No Name ain’t no joke either.
This is my ony other Guncrafter.

Hey Kenny,
Man that's a beauty also. All GI's are really nice but there's just something about the BC-17 Hellcat that really appeals to me.

I think I told you that I've been eyeballing and drooling over that 45 Commander Hellcat, the Smoked Blue over the Melonite one, you know which one.

OP, sorry for straying from your thread a bit sir. But Kenny, how's your wife doing buddy? Tell her hello for me.

Thanks OP!!!

Jim D.

It's just my opinion, but there are some very fine semi-custom firearms being made: NH, WC, ACW, GI, etc. But without going full custom, I think that GI is probably at the top for build quality and fit. Maybe not the prettiest 1911's but the quality is there IMO.

That my friend is about the perfect
Combo. That Milt Sparks red leather
provides a contrast that just sets that
NN off. Definitely a keeper Ed.
Congratulations!
