THIS GUN WILL LOOK LIKE THIS FOREVER, LIVES ON A GLASS SURFACE WHICH EATS BLUE AND NICKEL ALIVE.

EVEN WITH HOT LOADS. THUMB SAFETY IS ORIGINAL 70 SERIES TYPE GROUND DOWN TO NOT IRRITATE WHEN CARRYING. VERY LIGHT AND EASY TO CARRRY.What Bubba neglected to consider while ruining this pistol is there are plenty of lightweight 1911s on the market without screwed up slides.
The Clip Draw device is not a substitute for a holster. It works OK for short jaunts if you have a good gun belt. For prolonged concealed carry it is not sufficient. For a carry gun without a holster, this pistol certainly has some big holes for lint and other trash to gather in. The beveled bottom edge of the slide looks like an inebriated chimp held the file. The grip safety appears to have been fitted with a hammer and chisel. The bobbed hammer......I'm speechless. Bubba did chose a good trigger though. To bad he trashed the rest of the gun around it.
$2,500.00 as a starting bid?
