Fresh From My Bench... 9mm Colt Government Model

Iím lucky that I get to build guns like this. Iím lucky to have people want what I do and be patient enough to let me do it. Iím lucky to do what I do.

This is a recently delivered 9mm Colt Government Model for a repeat client who is not only patient but also a true joy to work with. The more I look at this gun the more it becomes just about the perfect set-up were I building myself a 9mm Government Model. I would probably opt for a different trigger length and front sight but over all this gun ticks all the boxes for me. Iím happy I got to build itÖ. enjoy the pictures!

There's nothing quite like hot salts bluing.

Needless to say the attention of detail is nothing short of excellent and the lined up grip screws are just plain classy.

That is a beautiful execution on that gun Jason, and always love to see 1911's that are hot salt blued or charcoal blued. It goes with that holster really well, looks like a Rafter-L Selous Scout holster, and the black trim really picks up well with that bluing job.

And again, another outstanding build. Love everything about it including the clocked grip screws.

Now the question:

His Randall or yours?

Superb! Just about perfect as is. The only thing I would change for me is an ambi safety (Lefty here), solid (no hole, internally lightened) trigger, and maybe a rear sight with the rear face angled forward slightly.

The broken edge around the muzzle as well as that edge around the magwell. Its those even rounded edges that speak to me.
The finish as others have commented is very nice. So even it looks wet. Beautiful work Mr. Burton. Very classy build.
Can I ask the amount of billable hours involved with the metal work?

Thank you... as I recall the hours invested in this gun was just north of 130.
