Okay, this picture is just to whet your appetite...DON'T SEND ME ANYTHING YET!
How good is this gun? The bottom line is that it is every bit the equal of the high-end 1911s in the safe, including my Wilson Master Grade, my C&S Full House Custom and my Richard Heinie "Original."
My spec on the gun included:
• Two-tone Stainless Frame/Nitron Slide
• Bar-Sto fitted match barrel
• Novak adjustable rear sights w/dovetail post front
• Crisp 3-pound trigger
• Blended extended mag-well/checkered flat mainspring housing
• 3 tested Novak mags
• Everything "cleaned up" and fitted
Check out the test target — that Federal ball at 15 yards.
Still to come for the Giveaway Gun are high-end Crimson Trace exotic wood laser grips, a practical/tactical Kydex holster set-up from Chris at Ready Tactical and the SPECTACULAR Kirkpatrick Leather custom one-off "BBQ Rig" completely carved leather holster and belt. Tequila bought the rig to California with him yesterday, and it was just beautiful...Mike Kirkpatrick outdid himself!
Hard to put a value on a package like this, but it has to be approaching $4000. I didn't want to just give away a gun now and then...I wanted the gun to be something I would have built for myself, an heirloom gun.
We'll be announcing details of how you can enter on the SHOOTING GALLERY site, the SIGARMS site and on the show real soon...
Meanwhile, I'm gonna shoot your gun some!
