Jim Rose of Jacksonville FL built this gun for me in 1994. I have only shot it a few times since I went Distinguished in 2002 (#1261 look me up). The donor gun is a 1977 Colt Series 70 Government model. All the usual build done back in the day; squeeze, file, fit. Kart barrel, Bomar sights, NM this and that. There is heavy stippling on the mainspring housing and front strap, much better grip than checkering. The gun is very tight and the trigger is crisp to say the least, its better than my Les Baer Wad gun. As far as accuracy is concerned, in slow fire, I averaged only 5 points under my 45 wad gun slow fire scores. Considering I was in my 50's at the time (I can't see the sights) and we were shooting factory full power (or issued) ball ammo, the gun is plenty accurate. There are 3 boxes of WCC M1911 Ball match ammo that go with it (1-85 and 2-91) and a Colt magazine. Located in NW Arkansas.  $1800
