Ordered the letter even before the gun got here. Shipped in 1965 to "Jack First Gunsmith" in Lancaster, Calif. Found some history on him. Opened shop in 1954, moved business to Rapid City, SD 1994. Iwo Jima vet, still working at 90+ yrs! Some what of a well traveled Colt. Shipped all the way to Cali, ended up in Florida in 1970's. Now back across the country to western Arizona. Pictured with my other two Gen 2 44 SPL's.
