    It's a 1986 stainless Officers.

    From the pics, what, if anything, can you tell has been changed from the original Colt parts? (apart from the Clark's Custom reverse recoil plug which I changed and the wraparound Hogue's)





    (original reverse plug) The bushing must've taken a good lick somehow.

    And it came with this set of bling Ajax stocks:

    I may be wrong but I don't think that is the original grip safety

    The grip safety has been changed. Cause we all know that colt doesnt fit them that well. Thumb safety(shouldn't be extended), barrel bushing(thats why the barrel looks recessed in the bushing) should have a thinner one, trigger(should be solid), msh(should be serrated), slide stop (should be serrated),Hammer, sights. Looks like the whole gun was reworked at sometime. How does she shoot?

    Carries and shoots pretty darned good for a micro. The weight of the stainless slide and recoil really tame the recoil well.
