Having problems with the camera right now but I did pick up a Colt series 70 trophy match online. Pistol appears very nice I don't think the sights on it are stock though. They are adjustable. It came in a styrofoam Colt container that is designed to look like a piece of wood. Is this what they used to come in?

Ok thanks I was wondering about the box, and thought the sights were aftermarket. Glad to find out they are not. Thanks again

The styrofoam doesn't have a wood grain appearance though, only the outer box. The styrofoam is stained a little from the pistol but was originally white.
Depends on the era the pistol was made, Colt used several styles of Styrofoam inserts over the years. Pictures of Sfguard's container would help.
