badair, Carrolton, Tx..............I believe it is Bill Adair, so it could be a refinish, but it it is Bill's gun and it has been redone, I believe he would have included that info in the description.Johnny Peppers said:Has anyone noticed who is selling the Colt?
I inherited a WB-stamped pistol, and with it came a commercial mag with parkerized floorplate; I convinced myself that the mag "belonged" with that gun, based on the research I'd done.Bladeandbarrel said:If BY CHANCE a '42 Colt had a "commercial" marked mag it would look like this.

Very disappointing if true.Bladeandbarrel said:I believe the extreme lack of response on this thread is because a favorite gunsmith of many forumites is selling the pistol.
This is not the first time this seller has sold a restored product and claimed it was original, fyi.
