Is it a Colt? Some of the early SP1's were electroless nickel. Not many made so might be a very collectable Enjoy and Happy Birthday, you have a fine wife that would buy you something like that.

If you are really lucky, your wife bought you one of the 1000 Colt SP1's finished in what Colt called Coltguard, an electroless nickel finish. They are awesome guns.

I own number 604 of the thousand made, and bought it new in 1984.

Sounds like 1980s vintage SP1 finished in Coltguard to me.

It needs a black handguard to balance it out.
