I have a Springfield 1911 Custom built by Jackie Best before he passed. Its been locked in my safe for years, I really don't shoot it and its not really a carry weapon. Is there still a market for these, I remember years back his wife was asking people who had some of his custom work to sell them back to her? thanks Scott

Best was one of the premiere bullseye smiths of his day..

There would certainly be a market for any of his guns here I  would think

Last I heard, Eileen was moving back to her native England. That was a looooong time ago.

I'd buy it if I could get it into California.

My "daily driver" wad gun is a .45 that Jackie built for my uncle in 1990. I shot an 889 CF and an 882 .45 with that gun last month in shooting a 2663.
