...And they are absolutely beautiful. and expensive, 1400 and up ^y%. way out of my price range but thought you all may be interested.

Wish Uberti made correct conversions or Kirst made correct conversions.

both built on Pietta's.  However for one of a kind hand built they are less expensive than a lot of production 1911's and Colt revolvers.
I just can't justify purchasing one...............

He only made six of them.   They have been available since mid January and apparently hasn't sold them yet.   $1495 for a converted Pietta would not be a reasonable purchase in my estimation.
