Identify this slide?

Howdy, I came across this Colt Government Model Series 70 slide and am curious to which version it is... The sights and rear serrations are throwing me off and I can’t find another like it online. Custom? Prototype? It doesn’t have and markings other than 80 or 08 stamped/engraved inside. See pics and thanks!

A slide fitted with S&W revolver sights. Popular at one time.

It is a Colt pre 70 Government Model slide manufactured between 1956-1969. The ejection port was modified and the slide refinished.

Those were very common modifications back in the day!

Let's see a photo of the disconnector rail if you could. I'm wondering if it has an A.D. Swenson stamp on it. The relief cut on the ejection port looks a lot like Swenson did them. It's a bit of a tell for his work. The disco rail may, or may not, have his mark.
