Thinning my collection down. Up for sale is my Don Fisher Custom 70 series Combat Commander. The serial number is 70BS70XXX, I looked it up once and I believe the gun was built originally in 1972 (http://proofhouse.com/colt/index.html). This is a total custom build gun, done by Master Gunsmith Don Fisher of Aurora, Colorado. Don was building custom 1911s starting in the late 1970’s and incorporated Fisher Custom Firearms in 1980. I bought this gun in 1996. When I got it, it was in race gun trim. It took me a long time to get it into the configuration it is in now.

Here’s the facts:
Hand fitted, custom smithed slide and frame by Don Fisher. All internals reworked and improved. The trigger is unbelievable....
Novak night sights fitted in 2009
Wilson Combat barrel and bushing, fitted in 2009
Black and Flat Dark Earth CeraCoat done in 2010

This 1911 is the single most accurate handgun I have ever fired. It is telepathically accurate… The bullets simply go where you want them to go. It took me a while to finally figure out who built the gun, but when I did, I had a few emails back and forth with Don. From what I know, he’s still building custom guns.
I will let serious potential buyers test fire this weapon at Iron Sights in Oceanside CA, or at the Firing Line in Huntington Beach when I am there (weekends once or twice a month).

The gun is in excellent condition and will shoot as well as anything out there, I would take this over a Wilson Combat (I have owned three), Nighthawk, Ed Brown, or what-have-you. I want to do more long range stuff these days, so I am looking for a .308 rifle. Also looking for a large caliber revolver.

SOLD
