Default Original Nowlin 1911 .40 17rd double stack P14/Caspian, will travel $3700

Nowlin (Para P14)

Custom

.40

Cerritos

$3000

[b]Will ship (Y/N): N (but will deliver ppt for gas anywhere in ca, would be a fun road trip)



This is an incredible gun (I'll post pictures tomorrow) there aren't many original unmolested Nowlins out there and this one is the most radical custom I've seen. It is quite unique.

It was custom built from a steel Para P14 frame that was then slimmed down by welding up the holes in the grip and fitting it with custom aluminum fillets. this gives it a profile that is almost the same width as a standard single stack 1911 while holding 17 rounds (I will pin the magazine to 10 before transferring it)

The slide is a Caspian with unique forward serrations that are very interesting, and it bears both the Nowlin logo, the nowlin arms crest, and the guild of pistol smiths logo and has a rich re-blue on the slide while the frame sports a matte parkerize.

The sights are a neat mix of a blackout rear (bomar i think) and a front fiber.

Ambi Safety, all nowlin internals.

In the late 80's this gun was custom commissioned and hand built by Nowlin himself (before he died), The Nowlin company has this gun recorded as costing $3700 at a time when that kind of money went a long way.

Yes it can be done, If you want I can do it, I have the reamer. it would also need to be re-sprung.

I would recommend fitting a second barrel however, as is it is quite collectable.
