I'm duly impressed. Your Colts always amaze me. Very nice collection.
I share the same sentiments as Lone Star-
Thank You for sharing!
Beautiful Handguns. Congrats.
I left Texas in 1950 to join the Navy, however I returned in 1974 to live in Austin and also in Ft. Worth for many years. I retired from American Airlines in 1996 and moved to Bellingham....
Also, the slide on my fathers Colt is a replacement. The original slide was cracked, so I fitted a later slide and had Bill Adair engrave and refinish the Colt.
Nice family mementos that you have there. I'm sure htat you are proud of them and what they represent to you. Thanks for sharing.
But, I gotta ask..what is the Schwartz safety?...I've seen mention of it several times and used the 'search' feature, but I'm still unsure as to what it is.
Apparently Colt thought highly of it at least for a couple of years.
When they started Series 80 production they came up with a mickey mouse FP block actuated by the trigger instead of using the Swartz design, go figure!!!
Since I seem to be asking questons and taking up your time, May I ask about the book that you used to answer the Schwartz question? Title, publisher, etc.?
