Even if I adopted you as a second son, you'd have problems with my 15 year old who has become a Colt 45 fanatic like his father. He has dibs on my collection, unless at sometime I need to sell it for his college education.
Would you like me to see if I could scan the Swartz safety cutouts?
BTW, you're right. It is a sharp looking Colt. I guess I was in the right place at the right time.
P.S. We'll have to get together sometime when I'm in the Seattle area. Email me with your phone number for my records and I'll give you a buzz. [email protected]
If Dsk would be so kind as to post the right side of the pistol you'll be able to see the nice commercial "Colt" and the Rampant pony on the other side. The serial number is 8634XX.
I know what you mean about the look of the plastic trigger. In the early 90's the trigger looked exactly like a 1911 trigger. Now, it doesn't come straight out of the frame. The top and the bottom of the trigger come out of the frame at angles that leave a gap between the end of the trigger and the frame. Not as nice looking for sure.
