The low reserve on this piece has been met on GunBroker so I am withdrawing the offer on this forum pending sale. Please feel free to PM me if you have any questions....still time to bid!

Up for sale is a stunning Sporting Signature Grade Colt WW1 from master gunsmith Ted Yost.
The conversion on this piece was completed in April 2017 on a Colt Re-issue 1918 WW1.

Ted's amazing attention to detail combined with the elegant and subtle upgrades help maintain the retro look and feel on this piece. This pistol has 50 flawless rounds and remains in absolute new/pristine condition.

The Signature Package features the following options:

-Welded and refit frame and slide rails
-Frame and slide completely detailed
-Lines straightened
-Complete dehorning of exterior edges

The current wait is over one year assuming he is still accepting orders.
Comes with Colt Custom Shop box, 2 Wilson Combat Mags, pistol pouch and original signed build sheet.
