    She has a tad bit of wear, a few corrosion pits from the gawd awful wrap-around grips.
    Original steel reinforced polymer spring guide & double recoil spring set installed.
    All in all,........she's a peach for an '88 Colt, it's been fired around 500 rounds.

    No Sir,.......I've been trying to get this one in MY safe for about six years.
    It does need to have a plunger tube installed, spring set & a new firing pin.
    Pin seems bent,........lord knows how that happened.

    Wow, for $450, that's a DEAL! Are you going to work any "magic" on it, or leave it as she is (doing the things you've already noted)?

    Not quite sure Sarge.
    The more I think of it, I may just replace the plunger tube & call it a day.

    Definitely a good deal on a nice pistol. The incoming grips sure would look good on it.

    of Ivory micarta with a pair of Delta medallions inset.
