Giles' .45 Shop

I just lucked upon a pair of Giles bullseye conversions. One 38 special and one .45 Both look like they have less than 500 rounds through them and I must say they are some really nice pistols, they are fitted with his full length rib and adjustable sight, also they are fitted an oversize slide stop pin. Extremely tight but buttery smooth slide to frame fit. Giles accurized them in 1967. They have the original test targets and correspondence letters between Giles and the original owner. Anybody else out there has/had any experience with Giles work?

I too have a Giles in .45 with the full rib. The whole thing is very tight and smooth though I have to admit, the rib puts it a little on the hefty side. Some nice target wood grips have made it my favorite bullseye gun. I bought mine used and didn't get any documentation, but the fitting and condition were so good I thought it was a steal

Giles .45

I have a Giles ,45 with a lot of rounds thru it. Who could put it on a Ransom and then tighten it up to bring it to original state of accuracy?

I have several Giles guns and the workmanship is very high quality.

Operation of both .45 and .38 Spec. pistols is very smooth
