Lightbulb Mirror Polished Colt .380

I recently polished this Colt .380 for a local customer. He decided to replace the stock plastic/rubber grips with these nice wooden ones. Huge improvement! We also replaced the rear sight, as the original was dinged.

Sharp little gat. The pro polish job + wood stocks really kicks up the class a notch or two.

That looks way too pretty to shoot. It belongs in a felt-lined exotic wood box with places for a spare high-polish magazine and nickel-plated cartridges to fit.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-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 at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1946 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.
