Clean Custom Colt

According to the owner, here are some highlights.  Rear sight was hand made from a block of steel.  Mag well was flared for 360 degrees; most gunsmiths don’t flare/bevel the front edge.  Kart match barrel, fitted to the slide.  It was built as a fighting gun and not as a range/safe queen.  It makes sense why the owner chose 10-8 Performance because 10-8 Performance is known for building custom service 1911s for law enforcement.

And of course, beautiful golf ball frontstrap, probably by Rogers Precision.
