cheap gun, pretty finish

took 8 months to get it back

like trying to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear


Hey, why not? I've done crazier things in my life.:o

I have an Officers MkIV I would like to have this done to. It means the world to me, but is no longer shot... Gorgeous pistol btw, I love it.

Thanks

Colt Custom Shop - $350 (they might farm it out, but I'm not certain on this one)

I think it's on their website.

Great looking pistol. Did Colt do the work? (Nevermind, I posted as the question was getting answered)

I had Royal Blue done by Colt 19 years ago on that 1917 Cylinder and Slide did for me. They also banknote minimal coverage engraved it beforehand , Total cost was about $1000 with shipping (to Roy Fispaw for the grips) and insurance and it was all done in house then.

In my opinion that is how a Colt should look. Great job and well worth the cost.

If that pistol works reliably (I'll bet it does) and you are not shooting bullseye or another flavor of competition with it, what more do you want?

I'm envious, puts my flat black Kimber Cutom II Target to shame!

P.S. Colt Royal Blue and walnut IMHO are the most beautiful guns I have seen. Elegant.

My first 1911 was a 1991. Other then the nonexistent sights, and the typical 20 pound Colt trigger they are nice gun's.

Beautiful blueing. Congratulation.
