You are very welcome here Mr. Hart, please do share your outstanding photo's and pistols with us. I have seen that colt before and it's a beauty. I like that cut on the front strap and msh, not to agressive and not snag prone I bet.
For anyone that does not know dhart he is a wealth of information and has one of the most beautiful bevy's of 1911's around. He also has amazing photo's to prove it.
Welcome again to our humble board, make yorself at home.
Wow that is eye candy also, that Colt is really sweet looking, I bet it shoots as well as it looks too! DHart I lost my manners welcome aboard here i was just taken from the looks on your pistol.
Hey guys... thanks for appreciating the gun... it's one of my few very special favorites. It started life as a basic, stone reliable ORM in dull black. THe gun was solid, reliable, accurate.... a PERFECT candidate for Ned to take to the max. I specd the gun just as you see it... except the x-motif serrations... I wanted serrations, but Ned came up with the X-motif. The gun was and remains a Series 80 which is fine by me... makes the gun an even better carry gun, I think, super drop safe... even if during a drop, the sear should be jarred out from under the hammer hooks, Series 80 will prevent the firing pin from detonating the chambered cartridge.
Here's how it looked before I sent it to Ned. It was great and I was happy with it as it was, but I needed a gun to send to Ned, so I picked this one. Most important to me was the bobtailed grip. Ned's carry bevel work is amazing! I wasn't a fan of the ORM, so that got gone.
