Colt 1911 in .45 ACP by industry legend Frank Glenn out of Phoenix Arizona. Frank, who will likely retire soon, will leave behind a storied career building serious guns for serious shooters. He built custom guns for some of the top shooters in the world —guys like Brian Enos, Bill Wilson, Rob Leatham, Mike Plaxco, and Mike Dalton. I asked a renown machinist last year who was on his list of the best mechanics ever. He said Glenn, Huenning, Cameron, and Marvel. I said Bob Marvel? He said no Al Marvel dumb ass. Ask me who built Ted Yost’s first personal 1911? That’s right, Frank Glenn. It took me a long long time, but I finally found one in the wild. It has one of the slickest slide to frame fits that I have ever felt and the Kart match grade barrel feels like god fit it. Double diamond grips are of course made by Craig Spegel…after all, we are not animals.
