Colt\'s Show Gun

The thread from Blokey about the 1973 Cobra reminded me that I have one made the same year that has "Colt's Show Gun" engraved on the backstrap. It is in a leatherette presentation case with the Colt coat of arms embossed on the lid. Serial and "Colt's Show Gun" written on the end of the box. I was told that Colt's made these up for display purposes at the NRA convention, SHOT show, etc.

I have seen one other so marked, a Boa.

Perhaps the most interesting thing is that the firing pin has been bobbed to prevent the gun from firing.

Has anyone else run across these? By the way Lonewolf, I've never taken it to the range

Re: Colt\'s Show Gun

Definitely a curio! I didn't know they made show guns, maybe because I've never been to a SHOT show. Nice little collector piece.
