Gentlemen,
I bought this as a backup to loan out to others at EIC matches, but I was recently informed my car needs a complete engine rebuild that was a nasty surprise to my already depleted emergency fund, so here you go:

*sold* Jackie best Colt 1911 series 70 Hardball gun $1400 shipped Bc92f110

Colt series 70 1911, build by Jackie Best (marked 8-89).
Has national match 7791414 barrel and 7267718 bushing. Barrel has squib ring about a half inch from throat (previous owner, not me!) but does not affect accuracy or function. Does not show any enlargement on outside of barrel.
Bo-Mar rear sight, Patridge front sight, and very aggressive stippling.

Mainspring housing is an arched serrated. Gun has excellent crisp trigger with a very, very short reset (not dragging on sear; has old-school narrowed halfcock and corresponding notch in sear.

This gun is VERY TIGHT. The slide/frame fit is perfect, no play at all vertical or horizontal. The barrel will not go into battery when hand cycling unless you let it snap shut or push very hard on back of slide. With the slide taken off and recoil spring out, the barrel can not be rotated in battery at all. The hood/upper lugs hold it very securely in slide.

Price is $1500, that is exactly what I paid for this gun from a local shooter here in KY last year. Let me know if you want specific pictures of any other area.

Jack built 'em tight.

Edited to add: manufactured in 1977 per Colt's. That was a good year. Not quite old enough to classify as a C&R for CA, however.

Found another usgi-style magazine for the gun to include. I'm looking for another aimpoint H-1 as well, will take one in partial trade for the gun.

I dont find lot of information about jackie best, but the limites information describe Jackie Best was a High level Gunsmith in early days and was AMU armorer. His builds are very tight and very rare to see one in sale. I like this pistol a Lot, but i dont have the funds, but i compare this Jackie Best hardball pistol With C sheet Hofers of 1982 Topps Blackless, you will find one very rare, possibly each 10 or more years. Good luck on sale!!

The Wisconsin veteran shooters will vouch for the quality of the Jackie Best builds as well.

Price of $1400 includes shipping. Includes 3x magazines, ships in a hard case. You aren't going to find a more accurate pistol for anything near this price.
