Purchased this from Clint Smith (personally) late summer 2004 thru Alan Yoast at San Antonio gun show. Clint informed me this was his first pistol at Gunsite. He had it worked on by Mark someone (could not remember last name), initials are around slide stop hole. Clint was thinning his collection due to his moving. Earlier in 2004 he sent it to Mark Morris who tightened the slide to frame, re-blued slide, serrated/flattened top of slide, installed Heinie's (front night site), fitted new Colt barrel and bushing, recessed the crown of the barrel. The frame was checkered and HC'd with some type of drop in grip safety (by first smith Mark ?)I never did like. Sent it to Tripp's last month and had Virgil fit a Wilson grip safety and re-hard chrome the lower. Has between 750-1000 rounds thru barrel. Additional pics available. firstname.lastname@example.org Asking $1650 + shipping.
Just remembered that Clint had the grip safety pinned, hence the "hole" on the right side of frame in rear middle of grip. Little bit of history left on the gun.
