FS-Travis Strahan 1911 Wad Gun

Post by DavidR on 11/26/2017, 11:46 am

Selling  another of my safe queen / back up target pistols to fund another project, it is a Travis Strahan  built Colt 1911 45 acp MK/IV 70 series. Travis built this traditional wad gun for a shooter who after many years of owning it traded it back in on a new Strahan Acculock 1911. The gun was then gone thru and refreshed with a new Kart national match barrel and bushing and various other parts. They also updated it with the marvel disconector cut to smooth slide function. It has Travis's signature front strap stippling as well as a checkered main spring housing. It comes with two SS mags, Clark optic rail with 30mm ultradot with click adjustments and weaver low mount rings. The slide to frame fit is very good not super tight but not sloppy loose. Kart barrel locks up tight. Trigger is a medium length set up with a short roll. Travis Strahan is a renowned member of the American Pistolsmiths guild and his guns are highly sought after, I bought this gun from Acculock, Travis's  company it shoots very well and is very accurate Price is 1350.00. shipped to your FFL if interested contact me at hwy92gun@bellsouth.net

Or, you can buy a Gold Cup for $1100 and have another $1200 having a gunsmith give you what this offers!

Quick question David...  Did Strahan mark the guns he built any special way?

This is like free money, only better - it's free Xs.

I can't believe this deal has sat for so long. Free bump.

A lot of people don't know much about the old masters of bullseye gun building, They don't realize how hard it is to be a member of the American Pistolsmiths guild and how rare guns built by these masters go up for sale and rarely ever at a price like this. No worries if no one buys it my safe always has a warm spot for it.
