    Colt Nickle Series 70 Thoughts and Help

    Picked up a 74 series 70 nickle gov. model few years ago and really haven't seen one must like it. It has matching box, original sales receipt. How ever it has a checkered hammer and take down lever. Some say very rare configuration. What like to get some feedback on this beautiful Series 70. Just a thought, It could to bought for the right price.

    That’s a nice looking gun. I suspect the nickel checkered parts were leftovers from the 1970 Colt WW2 commemoratives that were made for the European and Pacific theaters. Just a guess,I’m no expert. Note: the grips on the pictured gun below are NOT correct for that model. Pete

    Nice looking pistol!
    I disagree with Pete,
    The sandblasted non checkered stocks are correct for a '74 vintage GM.

    Yes,the grips on the OP Govt model are correct. I meant the grips of the gun I posted were not correct.
