    Less frustrated today - not gun related

    From a bleak rainy day yesterday, to a balmy 80F sunshiny day today.

    No gun news, but at least got to go for a wonderful bike ride. Man! I do like this bike.

    First service, at 1000 km(620 miles), is just around the corner. If the weather holds tomorrow, come Monday, I will have to leave it in the dealership. And then, just another 600 Km(370 miles) and the break in period is over. Not that it matters much now, at the allowed 6000rpm threshold I can already get almost all the pleasure it can deliver. The only thing lacking is the "top speed" rush, but that, in a naked bike, that can get challenging (to say the least) over 120 mph, is somewhat moot.

    Edit. Almost forgot. Picture of an hammerless pistol just to keep it thread related.

    Nice!
    My one and only nickel-plated Colt... a .380 from about the same time frame (1927).
    This one is a bit unusual and I need to get a factory letter for it; the finish looks original to me and I don't see any yellow (or red) flags.

    Markings are all crisp, even a little "pooched" metal around the Rampant Colt and the "75" inspection stamp.
    Edges are crisp, no wavy or uneven surfaces, etc.
    BUT, it has unusual checkering on the front frame. Brunner calls out 12 .380's with checkering but doesn't have a pic of front checkering.
    The one pic of a checkered safety/backstrap (Sam's?) is a different style, but also an earlier gun.
    Note each "check" has a hand-stamped divot in it. Must have taken a lot of time and patience...

    I don't have a lot of experience with factory nickel-plated Colts but have seen a number of "post-factory" plated guns which are pretty obviously refinishes.
    This one looks factory to me, which would imply that the checkering is also factory since it was done before the plating.

    Hopefully a letter would call this out.

    While I agree the gun looks like it has its original finish, I would say the unfinished checkering at the bottom of the strap and the variable width of the checkering would point toward the checkering being non factory

    Yes, that bugs me too... I was going to blow it off for that very reason but at the end of the auction I decided to take a gamble since the price wasn't heinous.
    There's no apparent damage/disturbance to the plating though so it's a head-scratcher.
    If it turns out to be post-factory it won't hurt my feelings though

    It extends under the grips like so:
