Extremely Highly Customized Two-Tone 1911 handgun

This unique handgun is one of a kind, with a central fluting theme throughout. It was made for a very discriminating client who appreciates Jardines ability to incorporate client design wishes while not sacrificing accuracy, reliability, and functionality.

The ultimate tactical action job (trigger job) for the fastest split times and double or triple taps has been performed on this pistol with that great "breaks like glass" feeling.

Of course, as is done on all Jardine's Custom handguns, a superb and tasteful dehorning and melting job has been done on this handgun.

This gun has a slide and frame which has been hand scraped fitted just like a fine machine tool. This operation, which takes hours of meticulous work, provides the ULTIMATE in tolerance fit. No lapping compound used whatsoever.

The match grade barrel is precisely fit to the frame and slide for exquisite accuracy.

The slide stop is specially tuned for positive engagement with maximum reliability and functionality to this gun. Note Jardine's exclusive geometry slide-stops. The slide stop is countersunk even with the frame so that it can not be pushed out of the gun when doing chamber checks, barricade work, or other operations. Also the engagement surface of the plunger pin is unique in that it incorporates three angles to enhance absolute reliability in the weapon. This is an exclusive that is standard on all of Jardine's Custom 1911's and Valtros.

On the safety is a special provision for the plunger pin to ride in a grooved recess that will not come over the top of the safety causing the gun to malfunction even if the plunger tube (which is welded on in this case) should ever come off the side of the gun or become loose. That is an exclusive tactical safety feature found only on Jardine's Custom work.

This gun also comes with a special tool steel hammer, sear, and disconnector that is a wire EDM special tool steel product.

The frontstrap on this firearm was raised right into the magazine release and then TIG welded to give the client the ultimate raised grip feeling resulting in the highest level of control available.

The back of the slide as well as the ejector and extractor are serrated on the back of this pistol to to give glare free performance.

There is a specially machined, Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG-Welded) on magwell with a 48 degree entry angle. The side of the magwell has been tastefully fluted.

The front strap and back mainspring housing have perfect 30 lines per inch checkering

The rear sight is a combat forced angle rear sight which draws the eyes directly to the center notch and allows more field of view downrange on either side of the sight. This allows for much faster target and sight acquisition.

As with all of Jardine's Custom handguns, the action of this firearm is "Glass smooth".

This particular handgun features many unseen special enhancements that are exclusive to Jardine's Custom Handguns for which his customers have grown to expect from his fine handguns.
