I have an early barrel-bushed 1903 also (made in '05). It was found in a back room closet of a friends grandmother's house. It had been there so long there were carpet fibers embeded into the slide. Needless to say, there was hardly any finish, and the right side of the slide was pitted. I cleaned it up and had it coated a matte black. It is a wonderful shooter, glad I could salvage it.

Coburn,
very nice Colt! If you do not mind me asking, what was the turn around time? I plan on sending my Officers ACP to them in a few months.

Sweet piece Coburn.



Mine also started out as a blued Series 70.  It has been hardchromed over polished flats.

You won't be disappointed with Yost-Bonitz's work if you have it done there.

I went ahead and had a Brown beavertail grip safety put on my Officers Model along with a trigger job reverse plug with full length guide rod.  Next are  some Novak sights.

Here's my humble submission.....

Okay...  okay...  I can't lie.  The 1860 is CVA.  But the third Gen and the 70 series are Colt.

Bought it off a co-worker who was hard up for money, he said they were the original grips. The Colt was his father's and when his father was killed in the line of duty in 1981, the Colt became his.

I'll probably put on different grips and keep these in the safe so that they'll stay looking good.

This is the handgun I grew up shooting over the years after we got back to the states.  Everything about it is perfect!

Definately NOT going to be a carry pistol.

Groovy, man.  


Any problem with the slide?  I was under the impression that damascus tends to be soft.

Ah.  So is it true "Damascus" process (the layering) or is just a finish?

Ah.

Many thanks for the comments, yes I did the build. I offer a complete line of pistols from my shop. There is a line of Damascus guns that are above and beyond this one. I just built this while waiting on more supplies. The damascus is no where near soft. It is some pretty hard stuff and you have to be careful as they are quite expensive if you mess them up. Above mentioned comment regarding sweeden, yes it comes from there and yes it takes a long time to get. TRUST me on this, IT IS worth the wait. T
