EDC: SIG P938.
Swenson's guns were hard-chromed in a distinctly blue color. What are some of the details? Does it have a squared/checkered trigger guard? Ambidextrous safety levers? A small pin set into the roof of the slide, left of the ejection port? Smith & Wesson adjustable revolver sights? Those are the most obvious indicators that I can think of. It should be stamped somewhere on the frame and/or slide with a small "A.D. SWENSON, GARDENIA, CA". Go to Pistolsmith.com; there are quite a few pictures of Swenson pistols there. He was the premier "combat" 1911 pistolsmith in the U.S. in the '60's and early '70's, and his guns are some of the few that are actually worth more than a stock Colt of the same time period.
