    I like the medallions as well. I too like to swap out shoes on my girls and mix it up. I might have to keep an eye out for these.

    I really like the build. The polished dlc is perfect.

    I saw pictures of one of the Clapps reworked by NHC awhile back. Pretty much the same work done as yours. This one had Colt medallions. To me the NH medallions look better.

    Beautiful pistol. Congratulations!

    haven’t seen any but I know NHC has done a fair amount of Colt work so I imagine they’re out there. The pictures do not show how nice this DLC with polished flats is!

    I like these grips but have a few others for this one, including these beauties with colt medallions:

    Now I just need to find the dam keys to my grip safe!

    Simply outstanding! Clean and functional, all the WC Colt should be. Congratulations!

    I'm still several weeks out on my version of the Colt/Hawk but you guys are making the wait ever more difficult. Yep, Bob and NHC are easy to work with and even with all my tweaks and changes Bob still remains focused and interested. A great team.

    thank you! Those grips Are standard order from them. I believe they use them on the DLC classic

    Not only the King of Collections but getting up there for creative posts as well! Really looking forward to seeing how this DLC performs but I foresee a lot of builds in it in my future...

    Very nice looking results.

    Looking forward to seeing your comments after a few hundred rounds.

    They do it in the traditional methods of tightening......or they could hard chrome the rails and make it uber tight... :)

    The Nighthawk skeletonized trigger is personally one of my favorites.

    I am going to want a similar build to yours in 9mm/38 Super and I actually want the Nighthawk Trigger, so this one looks a lot like how I have my vision in my head.

    It looks great and I am sure it shoots even better.
