I was missing the oil packing paper with my new Colt. I called Colt for the paper and was told that they couldn't supply it since it was only found in the manufacturing facility. I sweet-talked the representative, telling him I really liked my new Series 70 pistol and the improved quality, etc. He finally told me he would call manufacturing and see what could be done. A few days later I received a package with a handful of oil papers.
Now, years later when your package is displayed for sale, someone will say, "There should not be a chamber plug on a gun of this vintage. Colt had quit using them by then. The whole package is made up and not original! Its a fake! Stay away from this crook!"
Recently purchased a Colt gold cup 1911 45acp. And for my luck my case was missing the orange pistol plug. If someone could please guide me in the right direction of where I can find one. Looked on the colt site and couldn't find any info. Thanks in advance
