I am glad you got it.  If I had it I probably would donate to the Colorado Military Forces Museum.

Took it to the range and fired some rounds.  It loved the heeled bullets, and hit POA/POI at 25 yards with them.  It absolutely HATED the HBWCs!  I think because They were loaded with Trail Boss (lower velocity and impulse, and probably did not obdurate), rather than Unique or Bullseye.  It was fun shooting the heeled bullets!

While I did not have to pay the $1400 he originally wanted, I still paid too much for it to end up donating it to a Museum I would never see.  While I am comfortable in my retirement, I'm not flush enough to be that altruistic....

Here’s my 3 Colts. The top one still has fire blue on the trigger and hammer. Traded a Army Special for it.
