WTT/WTS: Seecamp 1911 45ACP DA Conversion

This is a rare custom Seecamp double action converted 1911 in 45ACP. I bought it used in excellent condition and its stayed that way. The conversion and customizations were done by Ludwig Seecamp himself. I have documentation which verifies this fact. I have only fired maybe 200 rounds through it. Unfortuntaely I need to part with this to fund another project I am working on.

Features:
-Unique Seecamp Double Action conversion (first shot DA, rest SA)
-LWS cartouche marked stainless steel frame
-Colt Mk IV Gov't Model Series 70 slide
-Stainless Bar-Sto 45 ACP barrel
-Full length guide rod
-Flared mag well
-Hogue rubber grips
-Adjustable sights
-Rubber checkered palm rest/mainspring housing
-Extended slide release and thumb safety
-Comes with one 7 round mag.

Price: $950 shipped to your FFL. Private transfer possible in the Central Texas area.

Will do partial/whole trade on:
-Springfield XD-45 (45 ACP) 5" tactical
-Fullsize HK USP 45 ACP V1 (safety&decocker)
-Professional gunsmith AK build services
-Mannlicher Steyr Scout in .308 (black, not Cooper/grey)
-ARMS #4 Para FAL topcover mount

Please direct all inquiries via regular email to perdurabo93@yahoo.com. DO NOT use board features like private messages to inquire about this.

This pistol is quite a work of art and I will be sad to see it go:

You know, pur, everytime this thing comes up I chuckle and am amazed that no one has bought it yet. It is a beautiful pistol, a historic work, and very fairly priced.

The late Ludwig Seecamp was a legendary gunsmith/gunmaker, and produced the world's first double action .45 ACP pistol. I have one of his firm's .32's in my pocket as I sit. I ought to buy it, being the 1911/.45 ACP fan I am.

I curse my general middle-class earnings status.

I bought a NEARLY identical(diff grips and has tritium sights) pistol two weeks ago at teh Wichita Falls gun show...actually, I guess I stole it as the fellow walked by my table and aske dif I was interested in buying a 1911 and when he handed it to me, I recognized it as a Seecamp conversion...I asked what he wanted, he said $650, I offered $600 and he took it...I sold this piece in Ft Worth two days ago for $800...business is business.


I bought 20 of these frames from Gun Parts company back in the late 90's and built them into complete guns using parts from where ever i could get them...they are difficult to find those that were completed by Seecamp as most folks never let them go...

Even at $950, it is still a good deal, yours looks very clean...best of luck and a free bump.
