    Talking A very black Colt...pics!

    I just finished this one up the other day.
    It's set up with an optional magwell and two sets of grips.
    Rear sight is a modified 'Tier One' of my manufacture.
    Front sight is my 'Whiteball' design.
    Finish is Graphite Black Cerakote applied over a base of manganese phosphate.
    [:)]

















    Here is a pic of the front sight illuminated by a very tiny flicker of camera flash. Notice how dark the slide is.

    Gorgeous 1911. Looks very comparable to some Nighthawk Customs, etc... and that's definitely saying something.

    You did all that work yourself?

    Peace,

    Very nice work!! I've been wanting to get one of my 1911's to you for some golf ball work, but every time I go on your website it says that you aren't accepting any work Shoot a local a PM and let me know a time frame for getting it done. Rex
