I just joined this site after falling in love with my newly inherited colts. Since I have a 38 super I’ll post mine, but as the colt guy mentioned above, this would fall under run of the mill compared lol. Pre 70 1967 super 38..the shrinking grips seemed to live up to their name on these. Anyone have advice on maintaining these grips would be much appreciated

"Run of the mill"? Maybe. But you have a great pistol in a great caliber; and if you're not satisfied with the accuracy, adjustable sights, custom fitted barrels and other goodies are easily available. I had my series 70 customized this way and I love it.

I've always liked those "satin nickel" Colt Commanders/ C. Commanders. I don't know what got into me (the devil?) but I even let that one get away! Oh, the humanity!

I've got a Government Super .38 (which I've had for four or five years) which fell victim to a fit of inspiration a couple of years ago. I decided to modify it so as to replicate a pre-War model. I managed to find all period correct Colt parts (including the hammer, thumb safety, mainspring housing, slide stop, and a milled trigger) and had the barrel blued (other than the hood). In order to get a MSH with the correct Colt checkering, I had to get one with a lanyard loop. I did read somewhere, though, that Colt did make some Super .38s with lanyard loops as special orders from some law enforcement agencies as well as some Latin American governments. The problem now is that I don't want to shoot it and get it dirty! :LOL: (if I can ever get my daughter to take some pictures of it I'll try to post them.)
