Stainless Colt on Auction Block
This Lew Horton-donated stainless Colt 1911 for an upcoming Kids & Clays auction, on Gunbroker.com, was hand-engraved by Baron’s Alyssa Montini, who used an American, leafy-vine scroll pattern to accent the slide’s fore and aft panels, with the forward sections surrounding the factory stampings. She also added the scroll pattern on the frame’s forward section (both sides) that goes forward from the slide stop. On each frame side, a small accent encompasses the mag release, and on the right side, a leafy-vine scroll pattern is nicely placed around the three pin’s ends. This stainless 1911 also features a highly polished finish.
The barrel’s chamber, which can be viewed through the ejection port, and the hammer are hand jeweled. Baron’s Custom Shop manager, Tom Lent, completed the gun with custom imitation pearl grips.
