    Found a blued one over the weekend . What a treat. This is a fun gun to shoot Trigger came in sweet at a glass breaking 3lbs and it just shot good with factory ammo .

    Ordered Dies and Bullets should be here by the weekend . Cant wait to reload for this gun

    I just bought that 38 Super Gold Cup in stainless like 3 weeks ago but I couldn't turn this one away .
    These new O Model Colts are pretty nice quality . I love not having to deal with that series 80 crap to get a great trigger pull .

    The bushing was very tight on this gun and the barrel locks up well
    Some good hand loads could produce better accuracy . I will post results after I come up with a good load .

    That’s a very impressive one hand group at 20 yds.You must be a bulls eye shooter.

    Nice shooting. I bought one back in 2017 and it is nice. Was going to post some pictures but photobucket is not being nice today.

    Once upon a time I was but my eyes are not so good now so I have to really have some good light to get good results . I have to paint orange nail polish on my front sights or they start to blur away

    Loading 124s but my 9s sure love the Fiochi 115s. Nice score.

    I have had the same experience . The Fiocchi 115s shoot great and whats funny is in a test of 30 different factory 9s they had or were tied for the worst accuracy .

    The gun they used had a Kart barrel .

    Not here. Both of mine are stock and I come out of the holster, at just under 20 yards.
