    Well guys, I have made a decision to thin out my collection and that includes the bulk of my 1911s. I know some of you are probably dropping your lower jaw about now. Sometimes we have to do what we need to do. I will still keep some things for posterity reasons. If there is anyone who is looking for something in particular, drop me an e-mail. Just so everyone knows, I am NOT giving anything away. Everything will be sold at a fair market value. Shipping cost will fall on the buyer. I would prefer not to have any tire kickers. If anyone is serious and needs pics of certain things, I will be more than happy to provide them. I look forward to hearing from a few of you soon.

    James

    I have thinned the heard a number of times, and damn if that heard does not end up growing again :) I hope it works out for you, nothing wrong with it IMO.

    Lots of people selling these days. I just re-bought my DW CCO back from Dave at DRC Firearms today that I had traded him awhile back. :cool: Been "trying" to sell my hardchromed Guncrafter Model 1 .50GI, but it is to help fund another gun and it's just a gun that doesn't ever get shot and see's life as a safe queen. I see ALOT of nice guns being sold these days. Are people struggling from the economy? Did people "over buy" during the 1911 bicentennial? What gives with all the selling lately? :dunno:

    Probably tough economy in most cases, I know for me this is the first time in quite a while that I've been completely out of the market for any new guns. :sigh:I don't think I'll be selling anything, but this is the first time I've ever really considered it.

    I told someone earlier in a PM that I would have some reluctancy letting that one go. I have never seen another one. It is one of the most beautiful 1911A1s I have ever seen. The stainless finish is flawless. I could not even bring myself to shoot it for fear I may get a scratch on it. I told this other person that I would probably not let it go for less than $2K. I figure if I sell it at that price, great. If it does not sell, then I am meant to have ownership. If you are interested, drop me an e-mail. It is good to hear from you. It has been too long.

    They were made in CA a while back for a short time.

    You never see them for sale anywhere.
