I've never had an ASM but I'd like to.
Careful what you wish for !! Lol!!!
I can wish all I want to but that's not going to make it happen.
Colt sued them for a reason.
it put em out of business, its a shame but i just feel blessed to own a few.
Not really. Colt sued ASM in the 80's for selling revolvers with Colt marked barrels and won. ASM was sold to AWA around 2000. Colt sued AWA and lost. The story on the Colt marked barrels I got from Dr. Jim Davis aka bprevolver who was an authority on repro revolvers. Uberti supplied Colt with the parts to make the 2nd gen Colts. Uberti subcontracted ASM to make barrels. When Colt stopped production ASM was stuck with a lot of Colt marked barrels. Instead of scrubbing the markings ASM put them on their own guns and Colt sued them for copyright infringement.
You lucky duck.
@hawg I blame @Ephraim Kibbey for starting me on the asm collection route
