Colt Finish...?

  1. Have had a few guns in my time, but i've got to agree 100% with gp. The Colt will scar with a fingernail...shoots excellent...but Law'd a'mercy fella's need to be a leetle tougher...:(

    and you didn't believe me did ya ???????

    must have a Rockwell hardness of a cheap convenient store pocket knife , or less

    honestly SG that’s why I don’t own a colt ,I didn’t make it up ,I had three at the time I bought a new colt officer acp in stainless , bad very bad scratches appeared on it out of no where ,then I finger nailed it and about crap my pants , I sold all three ,never to own one again

  3. Never about not believin' ya...just gotta experience things firsthand...but wee's both of the same opinion now!...;)

    Ain't gunna let it go though...'cuz it is a shootist...:cool:

    Feller just ain't ever gunna be a collector (for it's finish anyway)...:)

    Yep I know it’s a hard one to swallow ,and you probably thought I was nuts after reading it so many times

    Sorry you had to experience it ,to make it more believable

    you might keep this one ,but i bet you have second thoughts about forking out that kinda cash for another one
  5. Yep! Going to go for another SA next...'course I did see a H&K Tactical at auction today...Which one ya think is the one ta have?...and yep! The price is a bit different between them feller's...;)
