Nice 1st post....welcome to the forum!
Good old working gun! One way to see if the grips could be original would be to take the backstrap off and see if the triggerguard was ever drilled for a stock pin for 2 piece grips and to also remove the grips from the backstrap to see if the last 4 or 5 digits of the serial number are inked inside the channel of the grips.
What serial range is it? The 3 line patent dates on the frame suggests it's at least pre 129,000
I know, but I like the seller and that is what they were told so I will do my best to provide data to alleviate the fear of underselling a high dollar item.John Wayne?
Crud, their site is confusing, I read that as it being an ADDITIONAL $150 for the phone info or I would have done that in a heartbeat. I wonder if I can call them and amend it?I spend the $150 for instant phone information. Seems like I've heard forum members talking about 4 months plus to get a mailed in letter.
I honestly just like old guns but I am assuming this is quite a find? More than I thought anyway.........78cj, welcome to Coltforum!
