    Nice. Check on the production date. That serial number puts it in early 70's

    I'll Call Colt Monday. I didn't realize it could be that old. The flats are so polished I had to keep repositioning it so my roof, trees, me, weren't in the pics.

    Congrats on the pick up. Is it the light or is there a bit of rust inside the trigger guard?

    It does look like it. But it's actually lint from the orange string the tag was connected to.

    Can "coltalloy" rust?

    My bad. I didn't take into consideration a LW frame. No "combat commander" on the slide should have been a sign. :der:

    Nice looking, working patina to it. Rather than detracting from its appearance, it adds to it immensely.

    Nice looking old guy. I think it may have had a shoe on the trigger at one point in its life. I have a pre 80 Series Combat Commander made near the end of their run. Colt says it was made in 1982.
