    Fellow Addicts this is really a special gun. It was built by Tim Bacus who is a phenomenal gunsmith and IDPA shooter. As far as I know 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.

    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 Saftey.
    • 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.
    Asking $1,800 or best offer

    That would appear to be a lot of pistol for the money, GLWS.

    Just dropped the price to $1,800 and bumping one last time. If I still have her on Monday she's going back in the safe. Tim Bacus is one of the best gunsmith's in the country and this gun is on par with guns 3 times it's price.
