Sorry I was way off. The catalog I have is a Gil Hebard from 1961. Ummm..... well I got the "Gil" of the Giles ops: . But the catalog is interesting. A Colt National Match was $125.00 and a Clark "Deluxe Custom" cost $164.50. A Shockey "Deluxe Custom" was $187.50 and a Pachmayr Accurized ran $139.75. Ah, if we only knew then........

I don't have any printed info on Giles but I do have two of his pistols.
One in 45 and and one in 38 special. Both have his extended front sight w/ full rib. Very nicely made pistols. According to the paperwork that came with the pistols both were built in 1967.
Should you ever find any literature please let me know.
