Well I finally picked up my Colt today! Man what a saga that turned out to be.

My FFL went MIA and I had no idea were he was nor was he returning my calls, Fed-Ex was about to ship it back to the seller when a guy that works on Tuesdays and Thursdays came into work and finally accepted delivery.

I was ready to strangle somebody!

Just wanted to post some better pic's and of the stippeling for those who asked.

More pics! Best I could do, I'm not real good at taking close ups for some reason.

You caught that? Not loaded, I am totaly out of .45 ammo but I just put it back together to inspect and clean it and didn't engage the safety before taking pic's.

Thanks for all the kind words! I am very happy with it.

Yes, a range report will follow very soon.

Somebody asked about who did the work so I will post that again also. I had a thread about it already the day I bought it but the pics the owner took were not very good so I wanted to post some better pics as some were asking about the stippling, which by the way is awesome and is perfect for carry.

All you gotta do now Ti - is work like crazy to make some pennies to fill that hollow and depleted bank account up again !!

Bet you are thrilled - it is something else.

So you did the stippling yourself? Who bobbed the gun or did it come that way? That's a beautiful weapon!!!!!!!!!!
