Colt Woodsman Match Target pair, factory “C” engraved, gold, lettered, cased, 1983, unfired

As created in 1983 and fully supported by factory letters, this extraordinary cased pair of Colt Woodsman Match Target .22 LR pistols stands at the very pinnacle of the gunmaker’s craft. Serial 310375-S has a 4.5-inch barrel, while 058030-S wears a 6-inch barrel. Otherwise, as they were mated from inception, the pistols are identical in every respect. ENGRAVING: As flawlessly executed by Colt Master Engraver George Spring, the Grade C (in period Colt-speak, 75 percent coverage by a designated Master Engraver), a delicate floral and scroll extends along the slides, frames and flutes, then repeats on the lugs. In turn, these fields are accented by fine gold wire to such a high level of perfection it defies description. STOCKS: Each pistol showcases target stocks (right hand presentation) shot through with heavy figure. CASE: As lettered, the original walnut presentation case features a French-fitted interior and has the “Colt Custom” medallion inlaid on the outer lid. CONDITION: Near perfect and absent evidence of firing since delivery, only slight indications of handling are present. Magazines are proper. The case exterior has two minor edge impressions and two modest scratches on the lid. Interior is equally fine. (It is possible the case has been relined, as the factory letters seem to indicate lining color “Francis blue”.) Each set of stocks has minor wear (rubs and modest chipping under the finish) on the edges. FACTORY LETTERS: Each pistol is supported by an included individual letter detailing the features as well as the pairing. The price is firm and lawaway is available. $22,500 plus shipping.

Made to commemorate the 10th annual Soldier of Fortune Convention held in 1989, serial SOF-D007 (incorporates RKB’s unique 007 serial number) features a 4.75-inch barrel, adjustable rear sight and smooth laminated wood grips.

Now 87, RKB has elected to part with a number of his special firearms and memorabilia accumulated over the years.

Trio of Terry Tussey custom ultra-compact 1911 .45 ACP pistols prototyped for Kimber, unique compact .22 LR assembly, provenance, high condition

Trio of ultra-compact prototype 1911 .45 ACP pistols created by Terry Tussey for Kimber as the foundation for Kimber’s Ultra RCP II model. PISTOL 1 – Serial number KU29156 is based on an Ultra CDP II. While retaining the original (3-inch) bull barrel/sights/slide configuration, the grip has been shortened approximately .880-inch and a finger groove added for improved control. A special aluminum mainspring housing was also added and, along with the grip itself, modified to a round butt configuration. Additional custom appointments include skeletonized hammer, wide thumb safety, bobbed grip safety, thin rosewood grips with Tussey Custom logo and a unique blended magazine plate. Retained Kimber features include a stainless steel match grade bull barrel, stainless steel slide with lowered/flared ejection port, 30 lines-per-inch checkering under the trigger guard and a tuned match grade trigger. Included are two five-round magazines. Overall condition is approximately 97 percent with modest indications of handling and firing. The related highly-modified Rimfire Target .22 LR barrel/slide is shortened to 3.5 inches (from five inches). Included are four Kimber 10-round rimfire magazines, but none have been shortened or modified to operate with this pistol (Tussey single-loaded rimfire rounds during testing and never got around to modifying the lips so the slide would close). Provenance – a letter from Tussey states that both calibers are sighted in at 25 yards and includes a three-shot .45 ACP group measuring .643 center-to-center. PISTOL 2 – Serial number KU23983 is based on an Eclipse Ultra II and retains the original stainless steel slide, frame and major dimensions – other than the grip being shortened .430-inch. The sights have been removed in favor of a trough machined and blended into the top of the slide that features a recessed “shallow V” rear sight and red fiber optic front bead. Additional modifications include a recessed slide stop pin and magazine release button, slimmed slide release, bobbed hammer/thumb safety/grip safety, added aluminum mainspring housing, rounded butt and thin rosewood grips with Tussey Custom logo. Condition is approximately 97 percent with minor indications of handling and firing. One six-round magazine is included. PISTOL 3 – Serial number KU25552 is based on a Ultra CDP II with original dimensions. The original sights have been removed in favor of a sighting trough ending in an Trilux H3 night sight bead (dimmed with age). An aluminum mainspring housing has been added and the grip recontoured to round butt. Thin slant-checkered rosewood grips have also been added. One Officer’s length seven-round magazine is included. Condition is approximately 98 percent with only faint indications of handling. The price is firm, layaway is available and the group will not be separated. $10,000 plus shipping.
