I placed this order back on Aug 23 2014. Carbonia blue, CCH hammer, vintage roll mark. A lot of things have happened at Colt since then but they finally came through. Fit and finish is everything I expected. Notice the fit and radius of backstrap ears/hammer base.
With his infinite patience, I'd say he is good to order a personal Time Machine from NASA. When it arrived in the mail, he could take a jaunt back and get himself and all of us a spankin' new 1st Generatiaon Colt! (Yup; off my rocker these days.)
Cvaughnw, that is a dandy Colt. I hope it brings you decades of enjoyment.
