Every gun has challenges... some can be unique and others routine. These challenges and variables from gun to gun are what keeps everything interesting with the end result being to meet and best the hurdles a project might present.

This gun had some of those challenges, both unique and routine. At times it seems almost characteristic of these older large letter Colts but even still I enjoy every minute, every hour, and every day building these guns. I’m lucky to be doing this work and fortunate to be able to deliver a gun that makes the client smile.

Enjoy the photos...

As it begun…

Some of them are sooo bad..... nice rescue on that one, Jason.

With Colts of that and some other eras, I see a correlation between indistinct, wavy lines on the outside and wildly inconsistent frame and slide rails, but that's not from a study per se, just anecdotal.

What were the weird dark spots under the slide stop and safety cutout?

It's Dykem... I was laying out some cuts before I took the pic.

One thing is for sure about Colts from this era, all of them are different and they each require a healthy dose of problem solving. But that's the fun part...
