Colt Range Report

Colt Series 70 Government, Electroless Nickel, this is the second 1911 pistol I purchased back in the late 70's. Up until today I had only fired 12 rounds threw it, I don't know why things happened just looked to good to shoot, besides I had blued model Colt that I used in three gun matches. I fired 50 plus rounds today and it is pretty dang accurate when I do my part. The front sight is factory and pretty small and kind of hard to see. Used FM 230gr hard ball reman. No issues at all.

Colt Range Report

Very cool. I could be wrong, pic is dark, but I believe they called that Satin Nickel unless it really is SS. I also have one same circa. Except it had both Polished and Satin areas of the gun. Top of slide for example was Satin, frame was Polished, bottom, Satin, etc.

I like the slide stop and safety blued like that is that factory or did you have it customized? Very nice looking Colt!

Cell phone pic, in the range. John, you are correct, I think the box says Electroless Nickel maybe Satin, but it is not Stainless. Mine is all the same not polished any area. Good eye my friend.

Not good lighting for pics from my cell phone. It is BONE stock except for grips.
Tom, actually the slide stop and safety and front sight are black the way they came from the factory back in the day. It also came with Black Pachmayer rubber grips with a Gold Colt Enblem, which I still have. I put the Blue/Black smooth grips on it that I found on Ebay.
