I have my eye on a 70's era Model 70 Colt, blued and practically unfired. I'm looking for the right platform to have a customer carry gun build...something very nice to my specs. The only thing that is of concern about this particular pistol is the rollermark is not well defined. It looks uneven and shallow. Is this normal? Is it possible for my pistolsmith to enhance that cool logo and wording on the slide?

I believe Colt can restore markings on Series 70 pistols. I've seen quite a few 1st gen guns with very shallow or thin markings.

And by the way, it's "rollmark". ;)

The quality of rollmarks, the right mix of stamping and polishing, is what separates a quality heirloom and just another mass produced 1911. I would pay extra if Colt would match thier quality of old.
