A 50's vintage Commercial Colt which had a few issues. The rear sight was a Micro with a rather large dovetail. The sight itself was hacked. So I fabricated one out of 4140. The rear tangs were way overcoat so new tangs had to be soldered in and shaped. The front strap and MSH are 25 lpi. The top has been flattened and serrated . Front sight is a gold line by master Ted Yost. All new E2 internals with an EGW grip safety. The barrel is a Kart NM with EGW thick bushing. Finish is high polished blue slide over a brushed hard chrome lower. Grips are Honduran rosewood by Crystal at " A Woman's Touch" in Texas.
