Mr. Adair may have passed, but is his business still being run by somebody else? Perhaps I will call on that business later.

Nice. It kinda shows that the early commercial Colts really weren't a high gloss blue, but more a perfectly smooth satin finish.

Try not to fall into the common trap of wanting to replace everything on your new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out, and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot it for at least 500 rounds, then decide what you don't like and want improved. Vintage 1911's should NEVER be refinished or modified because it ruins any value they had as a collectible firearm.
