This Colt was produced in 1966. The pistol’s serial number is 304279-C. This Colt is as new in the original Colt box. The barrel has the high polish full nickel finish. The slide has the high polish sides with the no glare top surface. The frame also has the high polish sides with the grip area in the no glare finish. This Colt shows no sign of being fired other than test fired, There is no scratches on the high polish finish. The original “Pony” Coltwood grips are intact. These grips are known to shrink slightly as they age. This pair shows light shrinkage as expected. There is no wear on the barrel chamber area from slide being worked. It also has the correct nickel plated magazine. This Colt is truely stunning with that nickel finish! The original finish would rate a 99% or better condition. It is estimated that less than 2% of Colts in the 1911 style frame were ever plated before the Series “70” Colts came out. This makes this Colt a very rare model with the Plated Finish! This Colt also comes with it’s original serial numbered box! The box is in sound condition with no damage. The labels are intact and fully readable. The original Colt pamplet is in the box with the pistol’s wrapping paper. This Colt would be a real showpiece in any collection!

For those folks that do not know me yet, I’m very hard of hearing on the phone. Therefore when you would call me, I will pick up the phone and tell you that I will call you right back. I have caller ID just so that you know, the reason for that is I cannot use a regular phone. I have to switch over to what is called a voice carry over phone. When I call you back you will hear my voice in our conversation, an operator will type your conversation to me on my phone view screen. With me reading what you are saying to me saves me a lot of confusion for me mishearing words.
I do want to talk to you and answer your questions without mistakes or miscommunications. This system works pretty good, so please be willing to be patient with my hearing loss.
My wife Marcia has fine hearing on the phone and is quite knowledgeable about firearms and is very able to help you over the phone.
