    Even I can have a good day from time to time, I hope the one coming later this week is 1/2 this nice. I'd call this one a 90%+ the barrel is actually fit quite nice. Doesn't seem this one has seen a terrible amount of action in near 40 years. new Colt MK IV 001.JPG new Colt MK IV 002.JPG new Colt MK IV 003.JPG new Colt MK IV 004.JPG new Colt MK IV 005.JPG new Colt MK IV 006.JPG new Colt MK IV 007.JPG new Colt MK IV 008.JPG

    Beautiful piece! She certainly doesn’t need much. Perhaps some front strap checkering, and some retro sights - viola!

    Congrats Steve, on a timeless find!

    Combat hammer and beaver tail wouldn't hurt either.

    Arrow top of slide serrations with french cut border, bottom slide bevel, back of slide checkering, flush cut and recessed slide stop, beveled and polished barrel . . . . .
