    Courtesy @Karl Beining / KGB Customs. He recently had this gently-used 1987-vintage Colt posted in the Classifieds section and agreed to install a Harrison Custom long-reach trigger, re-install a beavertail grip safety, and bead-blast the whole thing to tame down the polished flats on the slide.

    This picture does not do the genuine article justice.

    Glad you love it! I really was a touch hesitant to bead the whole thing, but it really is more attractive now, enjoy her sir!

    That has a great vintage, businesslike vibe to it! I dig it.

    Karl, any idea who made that beavertail?

    It's a cointoss between Wilson and Clark, I lean towards Wilson
