    Colt Guard finish

    How can you tell if you have this finish? Is there any stampings on it or just the look of it

    Thanks

    Aside from a Colt archive letter, the look of it. There are several previous threads and photos, although photos are tricky when it comes to sorting out some finishes.

    "Coltguard" was a name Colt later used instead of satin electroless nickel.
    Usually, like bright nickel, Coltguard/satin electroless nickel has a slight "yellowish" color to the metal.
    This is usually obvious if you compare the gun to something made of stainless or is hard chrome plated.

    Pictures seldom are able to show the difference, you have to see the actual gun.

    It should look like this.
    The West wasn't won with a registered gun.
