Honestly, I know nothing about it. If you say it's a good deal, I'll take your word on it! I'm about to get a good deal on a Colt 1911 myself.

Update:

I heard back from Caspian, the frame was manufactured 16 years ago and sold directly to Mr. Madore, which confirms my suspicions that this was a "house gun" and not a walk in.

Its an officer sized frame, with a Commander slide.

Just saw this thread. I have a George Madore 1911.
For those who have never heard of the "wizard of the 1911", suffice it to say that a gun done by him is easily the equal or better of ANY 1911 currently available.

But what are they worth? If he was to sell that thing, what kind of money could he expect?

A similar "house gun" built on a Caspian frame and slide would probably command a $2500+ price tag and at least a year wait, probably more.

Evidently neither the gunshop nor the owner knew what they had. I never find deals like that. Okay, once I got a really good deal on a pristine High Power.

Well, in any case, even if I had stumbled across that gun, I wouldn't have bought it because I don't like flat mainspring housings.

P.S. I hate you too.

That is absolutely the case. Mainspring housings can be replaced, you know.
I am hesitant to change this gun, though, I think I might have to put a bar sto Bull barrel on it at some point.

JCW: "I think I might have to put a bar sto Bull barrel on it at some point."
Why, oh, why would you think that? Madore's .45's would/will shoot 10 shots into a Bullseye X-ring at 50 yards. (1.6"). My gun will still do close to that after better than 50K rounds. George made good guns.
