    I just acquired a 1950 Colt Government Model that was supposedly converted in 1953 to a Target Model. Unfortunately, there is no documentation to support this. All I can tell is that the Micro sights were installed many years ago and the wear is consistent with the rest of the pistol.

    I wish it had the original grips on it.

    Just awful... you're doing carpet now? Where's the mulch?

    Nice pony, though...

    The mulch is getting wet right now. I was forced to take a pic from inside.
