Dear all:
I took delivery nine days ago of a new wadcutter built by KC (pictured on his Instagram page on 8/12), and could not be happier with the build quality, detail, balance, reliability (flawless through 450+ rounds of 185 JHP over 4.0 - 4.4 N310, with some 185 SWCHP mixed in), short-to-medium roll, superb 30 LPI and precision (haven’t RR’d it - perhaps tomorrow - but immediately held well within the 10-ring, 2- 2 1/2”, off a bag, hunched down awkwardly). The spectacular high polish and bluing was just a fringe benefit, not a priority when I ordered, but…it is awfully nice. 
Much as I appreciate the guns built by pistolsmiths in the golden age of BE, we’re lucky to still have KC and a few others doing this work today. 
Plus, they didn’t have the KC grips in those days:)

Sounds nice, we do need photos though.

I thought KC closed his books and was not taking work?

Edit—never mind, got an answer straight from the man himself!

Good Day, yes my books are closed.  This build was placed in the work queue back in 2021 before I had my knees replaced. Do not just ship me anything. Call or email to make sure 1. I'm available and 2. that I'm in a position to do the work. Here are pics of the pistol in question.

Lol, I thought it had damage and rust! Then I enlarged the picture and saw your ears in the reflection!

Funny, the ears were missing when I took delivery.
Sorry I didn’t post pics myself. Last time I tried to do that here was a few years ago and I fumbled a bit.

That’s the Marylin Monroe of 1911s. Why don’t you come see me some time…

This site showed pics of the two nicest bullseye I've ever seen. KC's build above and the Eulette- Accuracy X bull barrel. 30 years ago I drooled over posters of Cindy Crawford and Elle Macpherson. I must be getting old because I'd buy a poster of both of those guns to hang on my garage wall.

With age comes wisdom: 1911's are much less dangerous
