This gun came to me in good mechanical condition, but the finnish was gone. I had it hard chromed matte. The grips are faux ivory. It shoots into 4" at 25 yds offhand.

What a truly classy design, yes?! I picked up my M1908 (a 1917-manufactured Type III) for a song (<$200) 'cause it had been painted(!). I know it was a popular corrosion-resitant measure used by the Brit's, but mine bears no British markings. I'll never know the history, but I kinda like it the way it is. What amazed me is when I tried it with modern ammo: it fed several brands of JHPs flawlessly.

Nice refinishing job!

This looks very nice! A nice classic revived into a state of usefulness...looks like it would be a nice, compact, flat and corrosion resistent carry piece. Much better than spending time in faded blue steel and black plastic lying dormat in the back of a safe shelf ...at least to me!

redhawk44,
Wow, very nicely done... looks terrific. I've always liked those older Colt autos but have not yet scratched that itch. Your posting is making me reset my gun priorities!

By the way, where did you have the hard chrome finish applied? Thanks.
