On Saturday, I heard about a man who brought an interesting 1911 into a pawn shop to sell. I mentioned it at work today, and lo and behold, the seller was known to a colleague.
I obtained a telephone number of a retired anesthesiologist with a fancy gun to sell. I just got off the telephone with the old gentleman. He apparently had Jim Clark build him a pistol back in the early eighties, and he simply wanted to get his investment back. He had visited Kenny on Saturday, was rebuffed, and left muttering invectives to himself.
He described the Colt to me over the phone, and I explained that his pistol was likely worth more than he was asking, but the old doc would not hear of accepting more than he paid. We finally agreed on a price of $850, and I made arrangements to meet him tomorrow after work.
This is another Holy Grail gun.........Crossing my fingers.........
