    I don't really consider any of my other pistols a collector's piece, but this may fit that bill.

    1972 Colt, complete with original box, warranty card, original mag, and the paper the pistol came wrapped in.

    I am seriously jealous of you right now. I love my Colt but I don't think it can compare to yours.

    Wow. I shudder to think what you might have paid for that...Wonder if my wife would agree to sacrificing 2 years of my daughter's college fund for something that sweet... :wink:

    I am glad you took my word and jumped on this one. this is one deal you will NEVER regret making! That is a GORGEOUS specimen and a testament to what JMB MEANT a 1911 to be. :righton:

    That is a nice looking gun.

    Now all you need to do is have:

    Ejection port lowered and flared

    Match barrel with bushing installed

    Skeletonized trigger installed

    Commander hammer installed

    Beavertail with bump installed

    Night sights installed

    Mainspring housing with mag well installed

    Extended ambi safety and extended slide release installed

    2 piece full length guide rod w/shock buff installed

    Extended mag release button installed

    Hard chromed

    Custom grips installed

    And then pick up some eight round magazines....

    Then you can carry it! :twisted:

    I'm just kidding man! That is one sweet original Colt. Beautiful and JMB will HAUNT you if you change it!

    I'd be afraid to shoot it, it's pristine for a gun of that age!

    Congrats!
