What is the most expensive custom 1911 you have ever actually seen? Did you think it was worth it? I am not talking historical pistols here, but the works of art that are actually used by shooters not gathering dust with collectors. I am curous as to how bad (price)/good(form and function) the things really get. If you have a pic, by all means, post it please. Personally I have only dealt with Wilsons so my experience tops out at $3000. I would not be surprised to see some of youse guys to come up with examples 5 times that amount.

I don't have any particular 1911 in mind, but I would think that almost any 1911 from one of the cult/exclusive/master gunsmiths would have to be up there$ (i.e. Vickers, Heinie, ...)

I also would like to think that these super$guns are probably darn near perfect, thereby the owners arn't posting there problems and we don't get to hear about them.

Or maybe they are just to modest(embarrassed) to tell how much they paid.

P.S. I really responed to your thread because I wanted it back/active at the top of the forum list. I wanna see some cool pix also.

I own a Les Baer Concept III, which isn't too spendy at $1500. I got to handle a Clark Custom Longslide ($2500) and an Ed Brown Custom ($2800). But, the most expensive pistol that I have actually handled is a Wilson Super Grade at $3250. When I pulled the slide back, it felt like it was on bearings.

However, the most expensive shotgun I shot is a Kreighoff Crown Grade at $25,000. The skeet targets simply broke out of respect.

A local dealer here in town has that Les Baer priced at $6500. Oh, and this one is not for sale, but he MIGHT be able to get you one.
