My Antique PLAIN JANE COLT Pic.
Here is a pic of one of my antique Colt U.S. ARMY 45 pistolas. The photo is a little blurry but the pistol is nice & crisp.
I still carry & shoot it every once in a while. It has absolutely no frills.
It features the usual tiny, crappy, nearly invisible, Colt military sights with NO modifications or alterations having ever been done to this all original old workhorse slabsides. The original checkered walnut grips are nearly worn smooth.
Even though the barrel is not throated & the ejection port is not opened up it still feeds my normal, modern, "non~ball" ammo perfectly.
It's been "in the family" for a good number of years and it's about due for a new recoil spring.
Folks have told me not to shoot it & just to LOOK at it Sooo... ~~ (of course) I don't pay any attention to them AT ALL and I still DO shoot it!
They can put it in a glass case and just look at it all day long after I'm dead & buried and they are finished dancing on my grave. :biggrin: :dancing2:
