    One going home.

    I already sent this photo to the owner so he’s seen it.
    This one is going back to Home sweet Home in New Mexico.

    If you recall something unexpected happened when this was in my custody. I pushed on the front sight with my thumb and it broke off!!
    New weld front sight: $45
    Re-blue Barrel: $20

    (Turning barrel to change POI was an original order ($125) prior to the mishap - plus a rock solid tune up using all the original parts).

    Fire blued the screws to make it pop.

    I’ll post the weld/finished photos tomorrow.

    The front sight blade broke, or came unsoldered out of the barrel slot? Either way it sounds like poor quality control at the Colt factory. Not very impressive to the extent that Colt should repair at no cost.

    V1SW: I called Colt. Customer was not the original owner. After some hand wringing I established Colts cost was guesstimated at $250.
    The slot in the barrel was only filled about 15% with solder. Yes, it broke out if the barrel slot. Not to mention it was crooked.

    People bend them to try to change POI. Unfortunately all the do is weaken the sight. I had a sight that had been bent by the previous owner, fall off a pistol at a SASS match during the first stage.

    I bought a used colt saa made probably in the 1980`s in 1989. It was used as new without the box and docs. I fired it and the cases were bulged and I had to hammer them out. I sent the gun to colt with the complaint. They sent the gun back to me with a new cylinder with the removable bushing NUMBERED to the gun along with the original cylinder (both with the same serial numbers).
    They didn't charge me a dime and paid for the shipping!!
