    Up for trade is an 80 Series Colt in 45acp. I purchased this base gun many years ago new and sent off to WC to have a good amount of custom work done. I did not fire this before sending to WC or after the work was done so it’s unfired by me. WC fired the gun. The gun shows no external wear at all. Series 80 parts were removed.

    List of work:
    - Tighten Slide to frame fit. Very, very tight with no play. Documented on invoice.
    - Stipple frontstrap. Documented on invoice.
    - WC three hole long trigger with 3lb trigger job. Documented on invoice.
    - WC Target Bushing supplied and fit. Documented on invoice.
    - WC extractor supplied, fit, polished, and tuned. Documented on invoice.
    - Flush cut and reverse crown factory Colt barrel. Documented on invoice.
    - Dehorn, prep, and Armor Tuff complete gun. Black slide, Gray frame, black small parts. Documented on invoice.
    - Cut front and rear dovetails in the slide, supply and install gold bead front site, rear black serrated sight.
    - Fit and install WC hammer.
    - Fit and install Ed Brown thumb safety and contour to frame radius.
    - Blend rear of slide and frame.
    - Install WC magazine release.
    - Polish feed ramp and barrel throat
    - Fit and install WC mainspring housing
    - Install all WC springs
    - Install WC grips

    Comes with gray Wilson range bag, test target, invoice, and two 8rd ETM magazines.

    This one took two full round trips to WC. I’ve misplaced one of the two invoices so I marked the work that’s documented on the invoice that I have. I’ll call and see if WC can supply the other. Any and all work was performed at WC. I elected to not replace the barrel as WC stated that the factory setup along with the WC bushing install was fit quite well and would provide great accuracy.

    I’m open to other 1911s in 45acp. Fullsize or Commander. Baer, Brown, WC, Nighthawk, Guncrafter, SA Custom Shop, Colt Custom Shop, Alchemy, Evolution Armory, or other semi-custom or Custom builds. +/- cash.

    Thanks bud, I’ve had it for 12 years or so and would be happy keeping it. I just figured I’d see what was out there. Haven’t done a trade or purchase here for several months so I need some action. :)

    For what it’s work, this is the old Gray Armor Tuff that has some satin shine to it versus the newer flat offering.

    I’ll definitely let you guys know if I decide to sell. You know, that Harrison SA is calling my name....

    One of my favorite finished by Wilson (after polished Turnbull charcoal and baron). Very cool build! Unfortunately I am a full size 45 guy myself so not looking to part with any I have...

    How on earth did you refrain from shooting this all these years? Beautiful build. I’d sleep with that thing...

    Appreciate the comments!

    I think a ColtHawk would interest me for sure

    I wonder how this would look with a magwell installed! I can't stop looking at it.
