A great project for a great client. Over a year in the making, collaborating with some of the best in the business. I built this Colt starting with a new Series 70 frame and slide. All new internals from bar stock. Kart barrel, EGW bushing. Checkered 25 lpi by checkering master Pete Single. Flat topped with an arrow pattern, Heinie rear sight and a Yost gold line front sight. Then off to Master Engraver Brian Powley for some classic engraving and gold inlay. Grips are old ivory. The very nice case was by Glenn Dean of Classic Chests, a one off for us with the internal box lid. The box was a gift from our shop to the client who has been very patient with us as we build him the "Decades Project" over the last three years.

STUNNING!!!! It's refreshing to see that Hand Craftsmanship still exists in today's world of CAD everything. Bravo.

I know it's not the primary topic of discussion, but that box is spectacular. Sorry, but I tend to be easily distracted by quality wood craftsmanship. And yes, the pistol looks fantastic! :) :) :)

How absolutely unable I am to explain how beautiful something like this is to me. If I was someone famous just a glance and a paused moment with a smile would wring all kinds of accolades from 100’s of famous gun writers fingers. To one day touch one like this in the afterlife......
