Thanks Harold. Your dads gun has gone to a good home. Brought it home and carefully disassembled each part, cleaned with Hoppes and gave a good wipe down with Weaponshield. She is pristine, just like advertised. This gives me an original mfg. Series 70 and a 2011 Series 70 to go with my small collection of Colts. Anyone thinking of doing business with Harold Mayo, he's a good guy. Thanks again !
