Mr. Glock doesn't know squat about "perfection" until he puts a Dan Wesson 1911 in his little Teutonic mitt. This is my ECO in .45 acp.

You cant change it back without welding and silver solder. Clark charges about $4000 for a 38 special. There is more to changing than meets the eye. I was asking do you know who converted the gun?

Default Colt 1920 Commercial

Greetings,

What a bunch of great looking 1911"s! I found this one at the LGS at the end of last year around November. It's a all original 1920 Colt Commercial that according to my Colt letter has spent it's entire life right here in Los Angeles, Ca. It shipped to William Hoegee Corporation sometime in April, 1920 and was part of a three gun shipment. I think I stole at at $1800.00 but who knows.

Sorry I misunderstood the question. I did ask the question when I bought the gun but the seller could not tell me who was the gunsmith was. The gun is silky smooth with low mount bomar sights. The slide was cut to accommodate the 38 WC. The barrel is marked 38 special conversion. I will detail strip the gun to see if there is any markings that may gives a clue as to who did the work. BTW. It is a bit more tolerant to ammos than my M52-2. The bullet can protrude a little bit and it still chambers where the 52 need a flush seated bullet.
Thanks

I only own these two 1911s. A Kimber Custom Eclipse II and a first year production Browning 1911/22.
The Kimber was given to me by my uncle. He used to do competition shooting with it, so he had a lot of custom work done on the pistol before I got it a few years ago. What a great shooter.

A Cylinder and Slide chopped 1911 (two guesses as to the overly-dramatic model name) and my homemade 1911 with a off-brand frame and a Brazilian army surplus slide.

This exact same 1911 ScE was reviewed on The Truth About Guns blog. I bought it from the author a couple of years ago.

I own a total of 6 1911s I have a 1914 bring back with trench art that stays in a safety deposit box with my 3 digit 1900 colt auto

I have one 1911 star b model in a tractor tool box that looks rough but still shoots.

and recently I have added these 4 to the collection after falling back in love with the 1911 single stacks
the first photo shows my 45's a sig nightmare and a Kimber ultra raptor with there leather

the next photo shows my 9mm's another b model star and a micro 9
