I just picked one up, and it is awesome. It seems to be a highly modified Colt Series 80 built in 1985. Shoots like a dream and is by far the most accurate pistol I own. I know he was a master pistol smith in the 80s and has passed away, anyone have more info on him.

is there any way to tell the guns build date from the serial number? I know it was modified in 1985 so I suspect it was from around then.

I grew up in Redford. And now I find out a guy who used builds full profile comp 1911s (which is a weakness) lived in my back yard bums me out. Now to scour the local shows to see if I can't find one...
