Limited Edition Shadow .45acp


Announcing the 2010 Limited Edition Shadow .45acp

A Special, One-Time Exclusive Offer:

Chambers Custom Pistols is proud to announce the 2010 Limited Edition pistol, the Shadow.  This unique, custom pistol is similar in design to the gun built and displayed for the 2009 American Pistolsmiths’ Guild Meeting at the SHOT Show in Orlando Florida.


In a day when match grade accuracy and unquestionable reliability are required, what gun can give you both while being exquisitely beautiful…The Shadow, it does.

Custom 1911 pistols built by Joe Chambers are considered to be among the finest and most beautiful guns created by those who own and shoot them.  Each gun is custom designed and hand crafted with the upmost attention to detail and design, and the Shadow is no exception.  From its stipple and pattern cut slide with invisibly blended dovetail front sight, to the match grade barrel and bushing fit, nothing is overlooked.

Limited Offer

Only 10 custom .45acp Limited Edition Shadow pistols will be built. Each gun will be hand crafted by Joe and delivered within 18 months of the order.  Serial numbers will range from CCP2010 01 to CCP2010 10, with numbers being assigned by date of signed agreement and deposit.
