I chased this gun for years and finally found one —a Colt 80 series in 45 ACP by industry legend Jack Weigand. Weigand Combat Handguns was established in 1982. Jack spent his entire adult life shooting, studying, and working on firearms. In 1985, when the idea of installing scopes on competition handguns was still in its infancy, Jack began to apply his knowledge as a custom parts fabricator to designing stronger, more versatile handgun mounting systems. This skill and expertise is reflected in his innovative, lightweight scope mount designs. Here’s an abbreviate list of his accomplishments:
*1999 Pistolsmith of the year *Featured five times on magazine covers.
*Holder of numerous US patents pertaining to scope mount innovation.
*President of the American Pistolsmiths Guild 2000, 2001, 2002.
*Presidents Award Winner 2000 and 2003 American Pistolsmiths Guild.
*Former shop director, Springfield Armory custom shop.
*American Handgunner Magazine “Club 100” member.
*NRA Certified Firearms Instructor
Long a believer in competition as a testing ground for his theory, Jack boasts an impressive list of shooting accomplishments that includes:
*Professional Member of Team Springfield Armory
*Professional Member of Taurus Custom Shooting Team
*Member, Caspian Arms Shooting Team
*Member, Practical Shooting International Shooting Team
*Writer of “Behind The Barricade” column for *Practical Shooting International
*IPSC Master Class Shooter
*NRA Action Pistol Grand Master
*IDPA Master Class
*Former Holder of Four NRA Action Pistol National Records
*Over 250 wins in Practical Pistol Matches. Swipe left to see him chilling with legends Doug Koenig and Rob Leatham at the 1992 Bianchi.
