    Fellow Addicts this is really a special gun. It was built by Tim Bacus who is a phenomenal gunsmith and IDPA shooter. Tim hasn't actively been building guns since the early 2000's but he's still a top competitive shooter. This gun was part of Tim's personal collection and has been shot very little. The gun will be accompanied by a build sheet from Tim. This is perhaps the sweetest custom 1911 I have ever owned or shot. It's an old school custom build from a great gunsmith and shooter that understands how a quality gun should look, feel and shoot. Tim Bacus is one of the elite 1911 builders but not many people know who he is which is a shame because a gun like this should command an elite 1911 price.

    Here are the build specs:
    • Springfield Armory 1911-A1
    • Match Grade Stainless Barrel.
    • Maryland Gun Works (MGW) Stainless Bushing.
    • One Piece Wilson Combat Guide Rod.
    • STI Trigger - Fit trigger components, 2.25lb trigger pull weight.
    • STI Sear.
    • Ed Brown Hammer.
    • Ed Brown Thumb Safety.
    • Wilson Extractor.
    • Heinie Straight Eight Sights.
    • Wilson Combat Gold Bead Front Sight.
    • McCormick Beavertail.
    • Craig Spegal Grips.
    • Slide to frame fit.
    • Sanded flats to remove ripples from roll-marks.
    • Machined slide to fit Heinie sights.
    • Custom Fit barrel and bushing.
    • Machined frame for beavertail grip safety.
    • Beveled magazine well.
    • Re-cut checkering on mainspring housing.
    • Machined front-strap for high-grip and checker 30 lpi.
    • Serrated rear of slide 30 lpi.
    • Black-T finish, applied by W. E. Birdsong.
    • Barrel, bushing and guide-rod left in stainless.

    Tim was an inspiration to me in my early career!
    I'm still impressed by his work.
