Does anyone here have any pictures or articles about or of Armand Swenson custom Colt .45's? Sure would like to see them, if you do?

Greetings, SB! Not much help here ... I seem to remember articles about his custom .45 work in Gun Digest and other periodicals from the mid-70's ...? As far as I rememeber, he was one of the first to offer a squared-up trigger guard, ambidextrous safeties and S&W K-38 revolver sights on a .45 ... accurzied and some kind of silver-ish finish. I remember I wrote to him once about his work but it was too pricey for me and I never had anything done, sorry to say.

I can vaguely remember a picture of a commander, hard chromed, K38 sights, square trigger guard, checkered? in, I think a Guns and Ammo annual. Man, this thing rolled my motor over for years after I saw it. Just a basic, work every time, gun with bells and whistles that made sense to have on a fighting gun. I've still got several pairs of his ambi safeties (with his name and address on them) down in the shop. If I would of only had some money, back then?
