    Click on link in my sig. He's one of the top 1911 custom smiths in the world and a really nice guy.

    I've seen that pistol. It's a nice one.

    Wow, nice appears to be putting it mildly.

    Holy cow. Using SA's top of the line gun as a base for customizing. Wish I could read Mr Harrison's work order better. But then I know people who consider a Baer just a good starting place to end up with a nice gun.

    Jim,
    Here's a slightly better view. As for your Baer comment, it reminds me the LTW 9 base was a Baer this year.

    Terry, the broker/seller of this pistol, is as honorable as it comes.

    One of the best in the world is who JH is.

    Also he is probably the nicest smith there is.

    Strange thinking on somebody's part.
    You could have put that much work into a Loaded and had just as nice a gun for lots less money.

    Yes, I know Terry is reputable.

    They should at least clean it up for $3550. When I get my Pro, I plan on having a single sided safety and flush crowned barrel, but other than that, I'll leave it as is.

    Yes I would have opted for a relief cut behind the Trgger gaurd on the front strap and have him do the checkering..

    John Harrison Custom and Heirloom Precision are two different outfits.
