    Hello all,

    Well it's official, my offer on a house was finally accepted!!! Thank goodness. I have the ability to pull out money against my 401k to cover all the costs of closing, but I would prefer not to do that for obvious reasons. I'm so freaking close guys, I just need a couple grand more.

    Sorry no trades on any of these. Since mortgage companies require a paper trail, I will need a bill of sale for every firearm. Transfers & BGC fees are on you. Stupid Prozanski.

    Check out my other listings:

    17.) Colt 1911. This is my project 1911 original WWI era. Building it up for a WWI setup, but then I added some WWII parts to it, and then some commercial...long story short, it is a mutt. And she shoots very accurately. I'm happy with her. She used to give me problems from the get go - someone had done a lot of trigger work and screwed something up. At any rate, all the internals have been replaced except the mainspring. If you rack the slide hard enough, the hammer falls to half cock (never falls all the way). However, when the trigger is depressed the hammer never falls when racked hard (so it actually functions 100% while shooting). I still haven't figured out what is going on with it, JM Browning must have been a sorcerer in my opinion. I think it must have something to do with the mainspring not being properly bent. Anyway, I haven't listed it for sale before because of this issue, but I need the cash and you can figure it out. It will come with an original military flap holster and web belt setup, and an extra mag, and all the original parts I can find. $700 OBRO
