Here is my Colt Custom Shop EE that was part of a group buy a few years ago. This gun has a the older gunsmith fit National Match tube. The barrel fit/bushing fit on this gun is simply outstanding.

The new National Match barrel is on top. The lower lug profile, the mid section machining and the increase in muzzle diameter are all different.

The new NM barrel also has no dimple and hood shape is different.

I like your new custom Shop pistol, a lot! With Brent moving on to greener pastures, do you recommend a "point of contact" to work with?

I’ve finally seen a CS Colt, I didn’t know they actually existed. It’s a beauty, thanks for the pics.
