AHF Commemoratives
« on: June 17, 2021, 02:19:02 PM »
Monday last I took possession of 4 cased Military Commemorative 2nd Gen Colts that were embellished and sold by the American Historical Foundation in the mid 80s.  Needless to say, they're beautiful.

Cool!  It almost looks like the second two were made by swapping parts between the first two.  ;D

Them sure are purdy pistolas...!  :o

@Abilene:   "It almost looks like the second two were made by swapping parts between the first two."

- My thoughts exactly...!

I'd swap the cylinders and loading levers back, and have two silvery pistols to shoot,  8)
- and two "golden guns" to show off to the James Bond-fans...  :P

 :)  HEY FINGERS !!!   ;)

Those be some swell Commemoratives.  Absolutely stunning, even though I don't collect anything.  Don't know as I'd shoot 'em as their value is in their "unfired" condition.

Think I'd stick some Slix nipples innem though.  Just to make folks nervous   :D
