Just couldnt help myself as I have almost lost count of how many of these I have . Something about the Colt Blue and the quality back then . But these guns are always a project that is part of the fun that attracts me I think .

This example was no different . The sight needed the pin that holds the detent screw and spring fixed and the trigger felt just a little to good .

In previous experience this has always led to the need for parts to be replaced but I was willing to shoot it first to see how it functioned before I ripped into it as I bought it from a friend and he said the gun was perfect .

It shot very well as I wound 100 rounds into a baseball size hole at 25 yrds problem was the hammer followed 3x in that 100 rounds .

Back to the basement for repair As I figured it had the stock parts but the hammer hooks had been taken below 18 Lucky I had a fresh Gold Cup hammer in the bubble pack and a cylinder and slide sear and disconnect along with a Brownells light pull spring .

Set it up at 3.2 lbs and after 200 rds of target ammo all is well rest of gun was spot on and it shoots like all the rest paid $700 thought it was a fair deal

Its a terrible addiction I didnt even get to the other safe yet Those old guns cherry in the boxes with all the paperwork test targets and tools are just too much for me to resist .

I guess I could have a lot worse vices
