    Sleek and proudly prancing, that's the way that blued Pony with those medallion ivory stocks looks to me.

    Nice contrast, gun and stocks!

    It still eats a lot less than the elephant standing behind you.

    It was hard to stay still for the pic knowing she was walking up behind me!

    Looks sweet with those stocks on it, Gman.

    Speaking of being well fed, did you know, the Rampant Colt on your slide is blind, deaf, and anorexic?




    And the Rampant Colt they use on the XSE series is quite portly (and it has eyes and ears ).

    So that's what you Kentuckians feed the horses!

    No wonder they run so fast.

    My favorite automatic pistols have horses on them. So do some of my favorite revolvers.


    The Rampant Colt 100 years ago, from a New Service Model 1909 produced in about 1910. This is actually a small roll mark on the left side of a really large revolver.

    I've saved these pics, Bryan, thanks.

    The late firearms restoration expert, Bill Adair, stated that Colt has had at least 100 different versions of the Rampant Colt in their 176 years.

    Out of all my Colt's, the O1991 Government Model is the only version with this style horse, they have used "thin" Rampant Colts before, but not without eyes and ears, at least that I have first hand experience with. There have been a few Colt pistols and revolvers without any Rampant Colt stampings at all.

    I think SGB's roll marks look much more understated, elegant, and "proper" on his Gold Cup than the "billboard-sized" roll markings on this 1979 example kept around here.
