    This gun is salty, no denying it, but the ugly is all on the surface and it would build out nicely. Has aftermarket sights, aftermarket barrel & bushing (shoots well, no name on barrel). FLGR and Pachmayr MSH.

    If no body here needs it it will likely get built here down the road, but I am base gun rich and cash poor so this one can go


    Sold pending funds gents, Thanks!
    $850 Shipped OBO

    Last pics are of a 1952 Commercial that started in much the same condition, that I built for a client last year...

    Sweet one . . . . . wish I could. This will be an awesome base for someone, or a great range "street cred" gun.

    But I've seen saltier . . . . . . becky.gif

    Sweet Colt Karl. As Zoid stated, I have seen worse.
    Perfect for a nice vintage with a little retro rebuild...

    Just saw my 1951 serial number is only 200 off from yours! Maybe their cousins of a sort.

    I've already got a King's Gun Works '47 Commercial Gov't but I've been keeping half an eye out for a '62 National Match. Got one of those?

    Not currently, i dont get my hands on too many NM colts as they are slightly less desirable base guns due to sight choices, and i am always thinking about what i could build a Colt into when i get them haha, happy to keep my eyes open though
