I recently purchased this nice old Colt at a local gun show. The story I receieved along with it was that it had been made up for a local target shooter who had recently passed.
The Colt is in the 1450XX serial number range. It has had a lanyard at one time but it has been removed and nicely plugged.
The Barrel length is 5 1/2 inches. The barrel markings are: Colt New Service 45 Colt.
The gun has been refinished but was done by someone who knew not to buff too much. The markings are sharp and clear.
The most interesting feature of the big old Colt are that someone took the time to install S&W N-frame adjustable sights on it.
A matching front sight of key stock was made and installed.
The gun currently wears a pair of nice faux pearl grips.(A bit gaudy) I have not made any attempts to remove them as all of the
screws on this beast looked like they've never been removed since it was refinished.
I'd like to keep this in Ohio (Central around the Marysville area) Especially any trades as I'd like to any prospective trader see it in person.
I'd be willing to drive at least 50 or so miles to meet anyone.
I can send some pics from my cell phone if you'll send me your email. (No picture collectors please!)
I'm asking $750 outright for this custom Colt from another era. I'm pretty sure you won't find another one like it!
Trades I'd be interested in:
AR upper. SBR Ok
HK4 in .22
2.5" S&W model 66 .357 no lock
A Interarms Silver Cup (If you have one you'll know what it is)
Full size Glock frame with a .22 conversion.
I like oddball older centerfire handguns. Particularly in .45 or 9mm.
I'll listen to all offers. Email is the best way to reach me as I check it at least once a day.
