Hello gents, there is a colt series 70 at my LGS and I can’t seem to find the date of manufacture. The serial is GV209560
Yes, the grips screws look very odd... like something Bubba would have come up with. The slide stop is just as strange.Considering the scarcity of Colts that are actually on the shelves for sale at gun shops, that isn't a bad price. That it's a Series 70 is a point in its favor, even if it is a later manufacture. Another point in its favor is that you wouldn't have to pay shipping costs! But those grips would have to go if I bought it. Those screws just look wrong. I have several pair of grips in a drawer that'd look way better than those.
And maybe it's just me, or the angle of the photo, but those screws look as if they stick up above the surface of the grips.
