    Well that is Fugly but I'm more than a little envious. Imagine the stories it could tell. Good on you sir for giving it a new home :D

    Might just wrap the grip in tape and buy me some Gambino cigars.

    Thing looks like they found it behind the toilet tank. :D

    As to the smoothness of that trigger, it's probably not factory, judging by the looks of every other part of that gun. Of course, this really doesn't matter (it's the smoothness that counts), but just sayin'.

    That looks like one of the roughly finished Agents that were produced toward the end of its production life. The lack of polishing - you can still see machining marks - and finishing is deliberate, to keep the price down.

    This gun looks like it was certainly carried a lot and sweat on.

    eventually might go the Black T, bobbed hammer route

    Then it'll be one of those EBH's (Evil Black Handguns) Rep. Nancy has nightmares about.;)

    I'd put on a Tyler T grip adapter on the wood factory stocks and carry the thing until the finish turns bare metal. I did that to a couple of them and became real handy with an Agent in the process! BTW the gun will prolly shoot to the sights with Rem 158 grain LSWCHP ammo which is the most effective in my experience.

    I like it. It has character. As long as it shoots straight, you've got a winner!

    Looks are nice but usability is paramount.

    I would love to own that revolver...I would carry it every single day

    I'd much rather have that Colt, and carry it, than a bunch of unfired safe queens.

    I think that Agent is very cool.

    I have. These guns have just as smooth an action as the polished ones. Ditto the bore. They were made when Colt started Lazer sighting them for sight alignment and are sighted for 158 grain ammo at 25 yards I believe. I notice your walnut grips have that slight gap at the top, they all seem to with that particular grip, but it don't mean nothing. I carry my gun in an old Lawrence simple scabbard or more often in a Myka Pocket holster. I wore one out carrying in a now worn out Milt Sparks Summer Special.I actually went thru 3 Agents in my lifetime.

    Now I'm wondering how that process worked at Colt.:confused:

    I would cherish that thing as a old car. And lovingly carry it.

    The DS grip sure gives me better control of it, and my life may depend on how well I'm able to control and shoot it.

    You're supposed to wrap the grip with cloth electrical tape.
