IDPA/IPSC Colt Pistol by Burns Custom Pistols
This pistol was first worked on by Dave Lauck of D&L Sports about 15 years ago. It was originally configured as a Professional Model with a 5 pound trigger pull for self defense use. In 2005 I took the pistol to Dane Burns Of Burns Custom Pistol(BCP) to set it up for use in IDPA shooting competitions. The serrations on the trigger guard and slide, as well as the checkering on the mainspring housing are all from D&L. The Bar-Sto barrel is also original from the D&L work. The remaining work was added by BCP. This included a carry melt, cut front sight dovetail, set of Hienie Straight eight night sites, BCP beaver tail, recut and melted Wilson thumb safeties, Aftec extractor with Series 80 filler block, BCP hard use trigger set for 3 pounds, recut front strap for high grip position, cleaned up the front strap checkering, fit and set BCP ignition system (includes hammer, sear and disconnector), fit competition slide stop, stripped, bead blasted, and chromed the stainless frame, Reblued slide, cut the barrel hood for ejection and polished the ramp on the Bar Sto barrel, recut the magazine well and beveled it well into the main spring housing.
