    Just bought this colt and I'm pretty sure these aren't the original grips. Can someone tell/show me what the original grips should look like?[​IMG]

    image.jpg Pretty sure these came with rubber wrap arounds with either gold or silver Colt medallions if it is a 1993 or later, if not^^^^^^.

    The sights are also not original. Below is a not great picture of a 1991 in SS.

    I seem to remember blued ones with wrap around rubber and wood. I also seem to remember some blued ones with the hard rubber grip panels that were not wrap around. You might want to see if you can find the serial number in the Colt online lookup or call Colt on their toll free number if the pistol is not listed there. Figure out which year it was made in.
