Any insights/observations regarding my most recent acquisition - 1973 Colt 1911 Government Model Series 70? The slide and frame appear to be two different materials. I was just curious to know what the experts thought about this particular firearm. Thank you in advance.

They are most likely the same. Someone had refinished it to the two-tone finish at some point

The grip safety currently on there was not available until the 80s. Someone replaced the original with that.
