    Bought for a base gun, 1979 year I got married and still am , to the same woman!!!

    I've started checkering the front strap and serrated the rear of the slide.
    Cleaned it up installed a few new parts

    One of the prior owners beveled the front of the magwell so far that I can't cherker it all the way down that is causing some added frustration to the front strap checkering. But it will get done just over 3-4 sessions

    Needs French borders, rear of slide serrations, and some flats polishing.

    At some point I hope to send it off to get French border and gold line front to match the yost rear sight and re blued after taking the sharp edges off.

    I'm loving all these blued Colt's with vertical serrations and walnut grips. This is the way

    First off, I couldn't wait to post this with my @AF_ONE bone grips!
    secondly, this is my first 1911 with all this high polish which brings me to my last point....I need a darn class on how the heck to take pictures of it! I swear its a chameleon and reflects anything even remotely close to it.
    @Infidel4life11 and I have deemed it "my cartel pistol" ;)
