    Nice pistol- If I may, how long did the Custom Shop take to complete the project, and (ballpark) how much was it?

    The project only took about eight months and CCS did a great job. Pricing is on Colt’s website.

    Not much of a Colt fan lately but I do like that one. You have good taste.

    Very NICE BUILD!

    For everyone else Ivory is no longer supplied on any Colt pistols for the last few years EXCEPT for ones delivered to customers in the State of Connecticut due to the new regulations (just confirmed this with Colt). This Ivory must have already been on the pistol or supplied by the OP.

    I LOVE ivory even put it on my stainless guns -- feels so good in my hands!

    Nicely done, beautiful gun. Also nice to hear that CCS turn around times have gotten more reasonable.

    There is no link because that was a custom job. Pretty cool that he used that base gun which was a SE gun by itself. Very Very tasteful what he did!
