Folks,
Not having much luck selling other guns, and the bill for the engine rebuild in my car just came due (wiped a cam lobe!), and a new baby and corona crisis already burned up my emergency fund, so time to raid the safe. Giving the forum first crack at this gem before I hang it on gunbroker.
 
This is without a doubt, the best example of a Shockey gun I have ever seen. Full-on "Deluxe Custom" model sold in Gil Hebard's catalog, and an early build at that. SN #289339C

This gun is in amazing condition, has been beautifully finished and has some of the cleanest grip stippling of any gun of that era. Rifling clean and bright, frame rails still have most of the blueing intact. The mouse trap is still tight. Fantastic thumb and grip safety fit, far better than most commercial colts of the era. Trigger is very crisp and short reset. Has a steel Ace trigger shoe. And as you can see, no idiot scratch which is absolutely astounding for a 59 year old 1911.

This pistol is a very different experience to shoot. All the weight out front makes it handle differently than most 1911's, it feels very exotic. And maybe it is my imagination, but the mousetrap bushing pushing up on the barrel during cycle make s recoil feel different. It's hard to describe. I am also a big fan of the 'pigsticker' extended front sights, have several guns with this longer sight radius and I really enjoy it for irons. The long sight radius of a revolver without the 'chunky' cycling feel that most longslide 1911's have.

I hate to let this beauty go, it is the gem of my collection. $1800, $1650 SOLD

For those of you on the fence about this pistol, Shockey built a really nice pistol. In my opinion they are better built than Giles and majority of older Clark's I run across. This Shockey has it all, even the top of the slide is serrated. If your gonna shoot irons you just can't beat an extended front sight. I picked up a Shockey last year and it's really a shooter. I did a trigger job to my liking and only changed one thing gunsmith wise.

I am blessed, and I feel privileged to buy this pistol for my collection. In between trips to the range it will be swapping stories with the 1911s built by Bob Chow for H. Lincoln Nelson.
