ONLY OFFERED EXCLUSIVELY FOR SALE HERE ON GUNBROKER! SO IF YOU SEE PICTURES OF THIS BEAUTY ELSEWHERE ONLINE THEN IT ISN'T THE REAL DEAL THAT IS ONLY OFFERERED HERE! ONLY ON GUNROKER!! Communication is key for any relationship and transaction in life. As a professional Gunbroker member for ten years, we hold Gunbroker auctions at a higher standard and service. And as such, continuous email communication is provided for serious buyers... Please be sure to refer to the info provided in this lengthy detailed description. This fine piece at this detail oriented auction is disclosed all up front in detail, geared for an absolutely safe educated purchase decision. ____________________________________________ For your consideration is an incredibly well made and very reliable Colt 1911 Commander, completely built up and customized by DAVE HELTON. World class gunsmith and master in mechanics and machinist knowledge... This beautiful 45 is all steel with a sweet two tone special edition combo making this a very unique and extraordinary Colt 45. You cannot pass this up if you always wanted a perfected brand new Colt out of the box, completely reworked by a master. This authentic commander cannot be beaten or outshot by the other Colt commanders offered here on GB because the fact remains this is a DAVE HELTON COLT COMMANDER. For those that know the 1911 and the top lister gunsmith names, then you know the MAN, DAVE HELTON. I can personally guarantee it as fact that when you perform a real RC Hardness test on this gun compared to a Wilson Combat or a DannyboyWesson, then you will with out doubt find the Colt Commander steel is a much Harder longer lasting metal gun, than a Wilson Combat. Yes. The Slide Watson. The frame sir. And the barrel Madame. This of course is science (ladies and gentlemen) and cannot be faked. The custom serrated front grip strap all done by Dave in Washington State, back just before he was selling his shop and training Dave Nielsen of Southridge Arms. Dave Helton was quite versatile in flexing his style and perfection into this 45. So please closely review the very self explanitory photos of the fine gun and it's impecable condition. As seen in this very gun, Dave had a touch for Virgil Tripp's incredible style and skills with a twist of Ed Brown's more foundational design lines... He also had some Egw type techniques among other original Helton tricks and techniques he rendered into this highly accurized tool for defense. This well balanced, custom built combat 45 is fully tuned to run very accurately without compromising reliability. The Authentic Colt slide was carefully refitted and fully handfit to the steel Combat Commander frame. Note the amazing sight job using a "Novak name brand" front night sight and a rear "10-8 performance" name brand pure steel bar stock rear U-notch sight. Again all this and more shown in the photos. The rear sight is a Novak cut, just like the front sight was done too. Novak Style. Mr. Helton also bead blasted the frame to a perfect satin/matte finish that shames most finishes seen around on Gunbroker. Using all high grade parts, including match grade name brand Ed Brown parts and EvolutionGunWorks parts. Only the very best top dollar components went into this gun. The work as shown in the photos was professionally done with attention to detail. This well crafted mean machine also has the appealing checkered grip frontstrap serrations matching the Wilson Combat 25lpi style of checkering. The Slide was also given recon ballcuts flushed out at the radius of the slide dust cover area. This carry Commander configuration was executed with utmost artistry and eloquence. The Slide was meticulously fitted with an Ed Brown Match grade extractor tuned to run reliably with several ammo types. The frame, as displayed in the high definition photos, was fitted with top quality parts including the well tuned custom fit high polished contact areas on the Trigger/ignition parts. It's a Marvelous work of art.

The run off and list this combat metal monster killer has is as follows:

Colt slide with a match grade "EGW EvolutionGunWorks" Combat Barrel Bushing for durability, and looks amazing...like a high end 1911 should look.

A pure steel match grade G.I. Style Guide rod and Variable recoil spring tuned by a professional GunSmith to ensure reliability.

A NOS colt commander barrel was hardfit to create this badguy killing combo. CHECK OUT THE ED BROWN GRIP SAFETY FIT TO THE COLT FRAME, MY FRIEND. A MOTH$R$U$$ING WORK OF ART. FEELS AND COMPRESSES INTO THE FRAME, EVEN BETTER THAN HOW AMAZINGLY PERFECT IT LOOKS...This fail-safe gun (for example) will save your bacon when the crazy shooter stands up in the movie theater to try and fire on you. That's right, it WILL save your skin when the chips are down as it has been tested by a professional GunSmith.

It has a Reliability package performed to the gun so that it ensures performance even while firing rapidly. It has been tuned to be compatible and is fully able to feed with several ammo types.

It is very reliable and is an accurate flat shooting 1911. Dave Helton, a legendary Master GunSmith who is now retired, revolutionized the professional shooter and 1911 scene. With his amazing skills and services, Dave the Helton Hercules results was a sure thing when you go to him for his Gunwork. Consistently providing his rock solid work and spirit. Mr.Dave Nielsen bought Dave Helton's shop and Nielsen told me, he had an "amazing example under Dave Helton and has been working for the last two decades catching up to Heltons 40 year run as a master offering gunsmith services." Holy +×°+×+×+×+×+° Dave Helton also tuned the Magazine that comes with the gun. Helton stripped it down and replaced the internals with a CobraMag spring. COBRAMAG is A.K.A. Virgil Tripp/Trippresearch dot com, the 2010 AMERICAN PISTOLSMITH GUILD'S AWARD WINNER OF THE YEAR. CobraMag is also the only world record 1911 Magazine to withstand and pass a 5,000 round test without failure. Yes, Virgil Tripp's Magazine/product is a proven one. It is famous for being clocked at beating the 5,000 round test without failure. Which has never been beaten. This gun was test fired by a certified GunSmith to ensure safety and reliability with several ammo types, at a low round count not surpassing 120 rounds. The 45 was finished in a durable PolyCoat called "TenRing" which is a type of very durable GunKote. Repeat note in further detail: Dave Helton of DV Custom aka DV Small Arms worked his magic on this gun to ensure that it broke the old myth that Colt 45 guns jam or don't feed well enough to save your ass in life or death situation. Not true. Because this gun proves the Colt 1911 platform is even better to carry than most other guns offered in today's market, where corporations' main concern is the bottom dollar amount in profit and the fads people follow. Think about it, who carries a gun that holds 30 rounds? A--holes do, a--holes who ruin it for all sensible law abiding citizens. I love all 1911 sizes but there is something surprisingly very unique making this 45 very formidable, and reliable. Go ahead and buy this gun and try it out. Once you do you will be addicted to this kind of gun's smooth pistol action. Dave Helton, a Master GunSmith who is considered one of the best ever, and is world recognized on the 1911 forum on the net helped achieve this great one of a kind gun project with tons of class. Google him under " Dave Helton 1911 forum." The man is a legend and is now retired. Helton executed some of the best Gunsmith work around so when you google "best 20 1911 gunsmiths" his name pops up all over the place. The guy is a beast. Dave was also an incredible competition shooter and knows his 1911 game proving it for 4 decades. Helton was also in the Military and pledged his life to this country long ago. This man left his personal energy on this gun by pouring his hard work and spirit into it. Dave used to show me and tell (proving it with the results) that he would pour himself into the project guns he made... leaving a piece of him into every gun he worked on and/or made. This kind of man is a legend and cannot be matched by many out there. Especially when he was in his prime, back when I had them make this gun. What you see is what you get by participating with a purchase at this fine auction. It comes with the beautifully handcut 1911 G-10 grips shaped to precisely fit flush to the frame. I have tried to hold onto this puppy saving it for myself as one of my prized treasures, but due to hard times I have to sell it now. Take a look at the serrations with the unique combination of parts and attention to detail. The gripping surface is not too aggressive on the hand. Yet gives off enough positive grip purchase with a comfortable texture, ensuring an absolute grip so you can blast fast and not miss a shot when the s*** goes down. The Checkered Ed Brown Main Spring Housing back grip area completes the theme magnificently for a very sure and safe grip. An absolute Marvel and treasure. Everything about this gun makes the combat 1911 lover recognize it's unique greatness. I love this gun and everything about it. The trigger is a match grade Trigger installed by Dave. It has a great tactical combat trigger pull. With Match grade components fitted throughout the gun, and awesome aesthetics added to the unmatched ergonomic 1911 platform... you can't lose with this mean machine. I had a new ejector installed and tested by Helton for reliabilty. The slide was fit to the frame very slowly and surely to ensure a smooth reliable ready-for-duty fit. Another fact making this gun quite the unique catch to find for sale, is that Helton is fully retired so you cannot reproduce this gun. It has a high quality stainless steel commander hammer that Helton beveled and chamfered perfectly fitted to drop crisp. It strikes down like lightning fast when the trigger is pulled. The trigger set up is a clean and light 80series. MAking this gun very safe, even if it were to be accidentally dropped...but if you buy this gun, please promise to take care of it and not drop it. I am praying it goes to the right home and new owner. It is a very clean and original style 1911 trigger set up. I repeat, it is 80series

This gun is for someone who knows the 1911 game and "loves some 45 action!" The pictures of the gun reflect the attention to detail that went into the gun. The photos also show the proof of it's new like condition. The project all together costs thousands to produce. If you know about the 1911 game, you have already realized this. So do not second guess or belittle the bargain price this one of a kind gun is offered at.

Please know what you are doing on gunbroker, and be sure you are a reasonable gun buyer. I prefer experienced buyers with a positive and successful gunbroker A plus rating. Do not bid if you have an F for non-pay or if you are a bran new user who may not be understanding to how things work. It's simple, you have to pay fast and as always I ship out the gun within 3 to 4 business days after receiving USPS POSTAL MONEY ORDER funds. Certified Funds take anywhere from 5 to ten business days to re-ensure legitimacy of the certified funds. I typically and kindly answer emails for serious buyers usually within 24 hours. I am happy to answer good people and their questions. These transactions are simple and the details and requirements of this auction are written and not flexible. If you don't like this, then take a walk and look elsewhere at the other million guns on GB. I don't trade or lower my prices. I know what I am doing and require experienced buyers and people who are positive. Please, no whiners and no bottom feeders. I only deal with the good old fashioned type of folks I (am so glad to be accustomed to) have worked with on GunBroker. ACT NOW for your chance to get a great spot-on shooter with man-stopping power of the 45acp 1911. With this gun in hand you are wielding tremendous accuracy and power. Sold as NEW OLD STOCK as it was newly made and was immediately, strictly, and properly stored, having healthy globs of oil all in the right places. I can no longer afford to leave this gun around stored all wrapped up sitting there looking pretty. This gun came out way too nice for a guy like me that holds such high respects and admiration for this gun to go out and use it. So I did what most gun guys do when they get their gun back from a big name custom shop. WE SAVE IT, AND BABY IT. To all good fellas reading this in detail, the next few lines get rougher so bear with me... Pardon my saying but the internet sadly brings many second rate users to GB who do not belong here... to the stupid Effheads and loser types. Do not, I repeat do NOT waste time emailing me to low ball me or sing off some BS negative opinion or BS type question. For real, don't bother. Try and go get laid or do something productive for once. Do not fool yourself and do not believe that I won't ultimately sell this fine tool on the net or locally, relatively soon. I've sold many others already over the last couple years and more in recent months. I am down to my last few babies that I saved for last. I had this gun ordered to be made long ago and have since fallen back financially due to my ongoing battle with a serious condition having cardiovascular disease. To the haters and rooster/cock type of netchat guys that like to hear about others like myself dealing with personal downfalls( like having cardiovascular disease and having to sell my treasures), good then... you are in for a treat, you will have a downfall coming to you too since you are human, like me. To my good gunbroker people, pardon the few previous lines... Onward, I wish I did not have to sell this gun but piles of Doctor bills and expensive life saving oldman pills, means my loss and your gain. I need to stay alive and this is what I am falling back on right now... just a few really nice guns. I have gone through everything else and have tried to avoid this but since getting ill I have sold off my collection little by little. I intended to keep this treasure for myself. I can no longer do that. To the smart, kind, and classy person out there, it's your move sir/madam. Email me, and let's get you your early Christmas or Birthday present going chief. Tomorrow will be here only if we are lucky and time flies. Like I said. Your move sir.

Keep to the payment instructions disclosed on this ad and as such, this gets you a quick turnaround. That way you can have your gun sent promptly. I recently dealt with the very 1st bum bidder after years of great smooth transactions and it was a sucky situation. It was the one and only OUT OF SO MANY MORE DOZEN TRANSACTIONS THAN EVEN GRADED ON/SHOWN BY THE SYSTEM!!! I've never had a problem but I was warned by fellow gunbroker friends and users about this kind of thing that happened. SO, NO FAKERS AND NO PUNK PICKLEPUFFERS ALLOWED AT MY AUCTIONS. ONLY REAL MEN AND WOMEN OF THEIR WORD BIDDING WHO CAN PAY WHAT THEY BUY ON THE NET CAN BID ON THIS. This has to do with what Tony Montana discusses in a movie called Scareface. It's about your word and your balls. Just clarifying, for all you s***talking haters who "dee" ride on forums all day. Back to the good news now... This is your time my gunbroker friends! Look out for my other auctions on high end 1911s, Custom 1911s, and collectible revolvers & rare gunparts. I will have more auctions up within 7 days as one of my other pistols I had up the other day sold locally. There were other auctions of my 1911s here on Gunbroker that recently sold like hotcakes. Additionally, I take on local sales too at my local gunsmith's shop. My rifles/shotguns are already gone. Nada left there. Hey, if you got 'em, shoot 'em boys. Appointments from my local smith shop will be coming in to meet me personally as the sale is offered. Folks arrange to come take a closer look of the gun with me there to handle it carefully, as no one besides me is allowed to handle it. Only the person who Buys/Pays will handle it only once it's theirs. Move soon. Someone will. I reserve the right to end this auction early if it is sold locally so press buy now, or bid to lock your purchase and don't wait. It will sell sooner or later. Just like my other guns have. But once it is does sell, it will be long gone. So act now. THIS GUN SHIPS TO YOUR FFL. I MUST BE SUPPLIED WITH A COPY OF YOUR FFL DEALER'S proof/FFL document of your FFL, & a clear copy of YOUR DRIVER LICENSE. BE SURE THAT YOUR FFL ACCEPTS THIS GUN FROM A PRIVATE COLLECTOR WITH A COPY OF MY DRIVER LICENSE. SHIPPING (including fully insured signature required) IS A FLAT $40. If it costs me more to ship it then I will cover it. Sounds fair to me. The price saves you tons of dollars to make this great deal a quick sale. Enjoy life, time flies!

I have known these men for years and trust them every time I ordered a gun. Good luck on the auction folks.
