This is a catch and release. I’ve not fired the pistol, but did break it down upon arrival to clean, lube, and function check before putting it into the safe. This one is unique as 1 of 100 from the Colt Custom Shop that has the high-cut and checkered front strap with adjustable rear Novak sights instead of the far more common Bomars. Price is $1400 shipped from my FFL to your FFL and any reasonable form of payment is acceptable.

Pros:
Grip safety fit and blending is very good, especially for a Colt
Hard to find high-cut checkered front strap and Novak sights on a Special Combat
Magwell is decently blended
I personally like the ambi-safety without the tang requiring ambi-cut grips.
If out of ammo you could bludgeon an attacker to death with the Pelican case. It is stout and heavy.

Cons:
Series 80 and not 70, but the trigger feels like 4 lbs to me and is fine.
The rear slide to frame fit looks fantastic, but there is the typical Colt play in the fitment.
You can shave with the edges of the slide because well, Colt doesn’t believe in dehorning.

I had great plans for this pistol, but something really special came along last week and forced this one to find a new owner.
