    Hello All

    Here is a (1995) Colt Classic Royal Blue finish that I added a pair of Talo wood grips, WC FLGR, Ed Brown Snakeskin mainspring housing & internal WC sear, disconnect, Titanium firing pin with extra power firing pin spring, housing spring. Shoots awesome. Sorry about the poor quality pics.

    That is extra purdy. Those grips are a must have IMO.

    Yes I agree, Talo makes beautiful wood grips.

    The problem with a nice looking gun like that is you don't want to mess it up. I have some guns that I holster and pack, and then other ones that only see a rug. However, it is tempting to holster them.

    This one here only goes to the range for some fun shooting. I never carry or holster it.

    Yes, you can have it Mesinge2. Take a look at the John Browning Commemorative I posted. It's more beautiful than this one. Even with a shitty camera these Colts look good in pictures!

    Hey Guys, Tomorrow I am going to post a Colt Series 70 (100 year roll mark) that I had polished to a bright mirror finish. If nothing else I will be able to shave in it!

    To my eye, it's a bit too decorative. I prefer plain pistols that look like shooters. Just me.
