    A Colt Series 70 with some classic modifications . Welded and refit for a Kart barrel and EGW bushing. Flat topped and serrated with a Yost gold line front sight and a 10-8 rear. All new bar stock internals. Front strap and MSH serrated. Magwell bevel and slide bevel. Finished in classic blue with a hard chromed barrel and hammer. The Olive wood grips were made to match the owners favorite knife an Opinel folder from France.

    It's like owning a 57 chevy that has been resto-mod'd, the best of both worlds

    Wondering if that is calvados in the shot glass. Given the French / Norman theme. Great pistol.

    Once again, you've knocked it clear out of the park.

    I especially like this build. It has a lot of what I was thinking for my Colt (slight slide chamfer, keeping the grip safety, and vertical serrations) and it was cool to be able to see it instead of just thinking it.
