I own the above gun and have done so for many years. I have never shot it much. It had a shok buffer installed when I got it. It was black, not the usual blue that you see. The other day it crumbled and fell out. I called Colt and asked them if the shok buff was original equipment, or something someone had added. The answer that I got was that they did not think that Colt ever shipped anything with a shok buffer in it, so it was probably something that someone had added. I could not get them to be any more specific than that. In that this is an aluminum frame gun, I don't want to shoot it if it was intended to have one by the factory, but the factory can not say for sure if it was. Just that it most likely wasn't. Can anyone tell me for sure if it was original equipment? Thank you in advance.
