i think its orginal then. the flat are blue polished and the curves are matte finish. ive heard of other people having the same model w/the lanyard. ill have to call a guy i met from colt and see if he can give me any info. whta are they worth? i know i stole it! a guy wanted to just give it up since he didnt want his carry permit anymore. awesome deal. how for some more in the future.
