    received my colt from ccs. very pleased. it's been so long since i've seen a new government model with the royal blue. it's beautiful. and it indeed looks new. pics soon. Cody's giving me pic tips. i swear, i'm pitiful with a camera. :embarassed:

    for all the traditionalists, i think you'll like it. as for me, well, i just kind of stare at it. :supergrin:

    I'd do more than just stare at it. I'd fondle it, stroke it, caress it, kiss it, lick it, put it in my front pocket.

    i tried to use natural light, but it's kinda overcast. the pics don't do it justice. i've stared at it for days. it's flawless. what looks like smudges is condensation forming. it is HOT and HUMID in NC!

    [​IMG]

    most of the work is internal. refinish, lower and flare, and 30 lpi on the frontstrap and msh for the outside. a fitted solid bushing, port and polish, a trigger job and a fitted extractor on the inside. also a new link and pin for free. :cool: i'm really sorry about the pics. i wanted yall to see what i see. a mirror[​IMG]

    The pics will hold for now until you can get some better lighting.
