It has a similar look to brownells oxpho after its been carried a while. Nice looking finish nighthawk is useing. Would be great on rifles and revolvers ..... get the nice aged look but still have impressive durability.Nighthawk calls it smoked nitride.
It looks light because well it is light. If I were going to have a bitch about this pistol that would be my only one.Thanks Hawkeye. I have to agree, I think that is a stunning Colt. My request was because many of the posts (pictures) I have seen show very light rollmarks on the left side. The right side seems to be much sharper. Never have handled one, do they look better in hand? That concern is the only thing keeping me from taking the plunge.
