I like the feel of some checkering on front straps.

Roger C. I like it but I'm prejudiced, I have one brand new in a wooden Colt presentation case and another I carried in a "previous life". I put blued sights on the one I carried but it is otherwise stock. The worst part is trying to decide if I like the old ivorys or the old Sambar stag grips more.[I bought these grips 30-40 years ago ,I couldn't afford them now!] Jeeze, it is a tough life! Nick

Why is it I never see that kind of quality when I see nickel plating? I have a Satin nickel '70 series NIB, unfired, chambered in 9MM, but I can't force myself to shoot it.

It's almost TOO nice. I'm real tempted to shoot it. Real tempted.

I just thought I'd share one of my safe queens.

Series 70 Colt Government Model, in bright nickel.

Unfired. No idiot mark. I use it as a shaving mirror.



My dad bought almost the same gun. A colt MKIV gov series model 70 in 1981 and it has always made an impression on me. Very flashy but brings back memories

Hi, nice gun.....the Nickel finish made me break down and add both a 38 super and 45 to my small Colt collection....both with that wonderous mirror finish....and I do not think I can bring myself to do anything but look at them......both came in original boxes.....I am hooked I am afraid....see ya RR.
