    Post up your old Colts. Here are a couple 1970s. Only 49 years old and still have the beauty of a 20 year old. Tight, smooth and very desirable. IMG_0248.jpg

    Got this in 1972. Was as new with box and goodies. Carried it a lot, shot a lot with military hardball. Like the way it looks now better. They are made for using. 8002.jpeg

    I know not everyone here is a Colt fan but I think early Colt Government models (original series 70 and older) are some of the best looking handguns ever.

    Later models are good by me too.

    I agree completely!

    My 1954 Commander appeared to be unused in a somewhat tattered box when I traded for it.

    I say unused because the first two magazines through it showed wear on the front of the frame from the slide and wear on the sides of the grip safety, neither of which it had before me firing it.

    I fire it often but have yet to ever put in a holster because I don’t want to mar the high polished slide flats. That’s just me, when my son inherits all of my guns he can do what ever he pleases with it.

    BTW he is a 1911 fan as well.

    I do have the original Coltwood grips for my Commander but they had already shrunk somewhat when I first got and I thought took away from the pistols good looks. The originals were a plain flat brown. I would put another pair on it if I could find some with the mottled brown and orange like on my Officers Model.

    jaydoc, I’ve never seen that chambering a Government Model before. Were those intended to be sold in a country that doesn’t (or didn’t) allow modern military chamberings in handguns?
