The 2013 Shooting Industry Masters continues to set records — even before the first rounds go downrange. Six custom once-in-a-lifetime guns are available for auction at GunBroker.com, and already have raised over $12,000 to benefit the NSSF First Shots Program.
A Custom Chambers 1911 package by custom pistolsmith Joe Chambers highlights the auction items. This one-of-a-kind “Fighting Man’s Gun” 1911 features a number of custom components, including custom serrations on the slide, lowered port dovetail front sight and custom “Show” grips by Ed Strange of Wicked Grips. Also included in this auction: a custom Kerby Lambert folder, an antler-based pen from Jones Pens, an exodus IWB holster and Mahler take-down tools.
A Mossberg 10 Millionth Anniversary Model 500, serial number U500005, is another auction outdoor enthusiasts will not want to miss. One of only 10 Anniversary Model 500s produced, this shotgun features a heavily-embellished receiver with gold inlay, high-gloss Fancy Walnut stock, gold trigger and high polished blue metal finish on the exposed metalwork.
Five other custom handguns are ready for auction: a North American Arms custom Sidewinder with a unique Masters serial number of “Masters13,” two custom Ruger Blackhawks by Mag-na-port, a Nighthawk Custom 1911 and a S&W M&P .40 customized by Robar.
To place a bid on any of these incredible items, visit www.gunbroker.com and look for the “Treasures & Traditions” auctions. All bids end Saturday, July 20 at 11:00 PM EST.
The 11th annual Shooting Industry Masters, owned and operated by FMG Publications, is the largest invitation industry-only match and will be held July 19-20 in Cody, Wyo. In the past 3 years, the Masters has raised nearly $150,000 for NSSF’s First Shots Program and the USA Shooting Team.
