While I love the classic look of a blued Colt with a nice set of ivory stocks on it and hard chrome still remains my favorite finish for a carry gun, the traditional two-tone of a hard chromed frame underneath a blued slide is likely my overall favorite finish combination.

This gun is for a very patient customer who is quite active in the shooting sports. He and I have shared a ranged deck a couple of times and it’s always fun to build a guns for him because knows what he wants and needs on a pistol but still allows me the freedom to do what I do.

The base gun is a new Series 70 Colt that got a weld-up frame and slide fit, Kart barrel fit to an EGW barrel bushing and slide stop, an EGW grip safety swinging on a Wilson Combat Bulletproof ambi-safety, and a Wilson Combat Bulletproof mag-well. The gun is hand checkered at 30lpi with the bottom of the trigger guard being done at 40lpi, the slide is flattened and serrated, and the rear sight is a re-profiled Heinie matted to our Gold Line front sight. Add in a ball-cut slide finished to a 600 grit polish, a bit of matte hard chrome on the frame, and a set of VZ double diamond stocks and poof... a classic two-tone gun is born!

Enjoy the pictures!

Sir,

That blaster is absolutely a fantastic piece of craftsmanship. They get better and better every time you post them. Who made that fine blade you have in the photo?

The beautiful gun notwithstanding, your photography is immaculate. From a fellow photog, do you stack photos for that awesome DOF?

Well done sir.
