Rumor around these parts is that the finish on the long flutes actually has a bit of Sam Colt's DNA mixed in, thereby providing extra strength to the steel.You claim to know that Colt "upgraded all cylinders". Couple of ways to actually do that but you offer no proof.
"Sam Colt was a hard man, during hard times, who drove a hard bargain, so this finish needs to be hard." - Someone at Colt circa 1905
