Fantastic example of a custom/practical working gun. Very nice sir, enjoy it.


A belated thank you here! Your comment sums-up nicely how I feel about this gun and others like it - they’re well-made and so enjoyable to look at, but they also are made to be used. I shoot this and any others I’m blessed to own as often as I can. As I carry 1911s predominately, this one’s definitely “in the lineup,” so to speak.

I don’t know the full history on this 1981-era Colt. At some point it received some touches from the former Yost-Bonitz partnership and was later further enhanced by KGB Customs. I’ve logged just about 3,000 rounds through it myself and (clearly) enjoy it. It’s in my lineup of “carry” 1911s. Shown here with some of the leather I use: a Milt Sparks Roadrunner OWB holster and their S4C magazine pouch. Magazines are from Wilson Combat. The grips are Craig Spegels. VERY NICE.
