Spectacular Terry Tussey custom damascus steel .45 ACP. Completed circa 1997 and the subject of an 11-page Guns Magazine cover feature with Ichiro Nagata photography, serial 27232 stands tall among the finest 1911 pistols ever created. The result of a collaboration between Tussey, Caspian and its invisionary Roy Huntington, even the smallest details were carefully considered, discussed and addressed. Tussey did the heavy lifting to be sure, maching the slide from a hand-forged billet, installing and tuning the Vidcki trigger and fitting it all together in such a way it delivered his one-inch at 25-yards accuracy guarantee. Special features include a fiber optic front sight, adjustable “aperture” rear sight, ambidextrous thumb safety, bumped beavertail grip safety and a Smith & Alexander beveled magazine well. No box, magazine or papers. CONDITION: Having been handled with great care over its lifetime, the pistol remains in approximately 99 percent condition. ROY HUNTINGTON has written over 2,500 firearm-related articles since his first effort was published by Guns & Ammo in 1982.
