    FYI to everyone..time-wise seems Colt is taking about 3 months to get a letter out. I ordered letters for my 1903 and Police Positive on Aug 31st. Called Colt yesterday and was advised they were getting to the letters next week for those ordered end of August. The wait goes on.

    That is a lot quicker than last year. It took mine seven months and a few days to arrive

    7 months?? Guess I shouldn’t complain. I was toying with ordering letters for my other two Colts but not sure. My Colt Argentine Model 1927 Model numbers don’t match (frame # off by 3 digits), 1918 Colt pretty sure of the shipping. So not sure if worth the $. I don’t know.

    Yep--Beverly is the only one that does this and she has to research everyone and the information from different people and departments sometimes doing the research on her own. Sat next to her at dinner one night she is a very nice, funny and pleasant lady!

    How much is it to have one lettered now? The only one I'd have any interest in lettering would be my '48 Commercial Gov't but it would just be to satisfy some curiosity about the gun's background. It was customized by King's in the '70s so the information wouldn't add any value to it, just a bit of novelty.

    Wow. A few years ago I got one for my 1991 Gold Cup Commander. I was told three months and got it in 2. They did not charge my credit card till just before they sent it however.
