The Box is Opened!

A great project for a great client. Over a year in the making, collaborating with some of the best in the business. I built this Colt starting with a new Series 70 frame and slide. All new internals from bar stock. Kart barrel, EGW bushing. Checkered 25 lpi by checkering master Pete Single. Flat topped with an arrow pattern, Heinie rear sight and a Yost gold line front sight. Then off to Master Engraver Brian Powley for some classic engraving and gold inlay. Grips are old ivory. The very nice case was by Glenn Dean of Classic Chests, a one off for us with the internal box lid. The box was a gift from our shop to the client who has been very patient with us as we build him the "Decades Project" over the last three years.
