    I just took delivery of this one of a kind Colt that has been in the works for a very long time. Just a few of the features that make it special:

    Built on a new 72B prefix current production frame. These frames are the last to feature a stamped serial number. A brand new Colt slide with pre-70 series style rollmarks. A big THANK YOU to Colt for the slide. A Colt/Kart collaboration on a custom carbon steel barrel. The talent of Jason Burton.

    I will have a full write up, range report and additional photos as time allows.



    A special barrel for this project.


    A few glamour shots from Jason:
