Item No.: 8913 Price : $2,495.00
Description :
This is a Colt Super .38 Pistol manufactured in 1956. It has been customized at the Colt Custom Shop. Modifications include a full length Bo-Mar adjustable target sight, beaver tail grip safety, light weight trigger, beveled magazine well, Colt Custom wooden grips, and a stippled front grip strap. This is in addition to the action work. The owner believes this is a John Giles custom pistol, but I am not certain this is the case. I do not know if Mr. Giles worked for Colt at any time. Also, he used tiny welds inside the slide to tighten lock up and there are none present on this gun. That said, this is a fine piece of work, the pinnacle of custom 1911 builds in the 1960's and 1970's. The pistol is in very fine condition with more than 95% of its factory blued finish remaining. There is just a little holster wear on the high edges of the slide and frame. The bore and mechanics are excellent. There is a very small dent on the right grip panel. The pistol comes with one custom Colt magazine, 5 Triple K magazines, and a plastic hard case. This is a beautiful Colt Super .38 and a great example of custom gunsmithing in the early days. Stock no. 23661
