      Colt stopped using the high gloss blue in 1914 as it was fragile and didn’t hold up. All their early pistols came in this finish. This one is just exceptional and like a black chrome mirror. Really cool

            Just stunning. Leaves room for all of us amateurs to aspire to.

                I couldn’t believe it when I got it either. Previous owner got it covered in cosmoline. That’s why the high gloss blue is near perfect and the fire blue so vibrant

                      This one came from a guy in Pa. once you are known as a “buyer” and you make some contacts, they kind of flow your way. Of course I do buy a lot of what’s offered to me.

                      I have a line on 3 WW2 1911’s. I only want one. I’ll post the other 2 if anyone wants them. They are both late war type 3 Remington Rands, one is 99% the other 95-97%. These aren’t super rare but also won’t break the bank.

                        If there was ever one of your pistols that should make you learn how to do high end photgraphy.....this is it.

                        Also talk about the simplistic industrial artwork this piece is. Look at the bobtail and the lines of this gun. It really is a piece of art.

                          And all hand fitted. Shame if it is with the govt agencies, osha, epa, dec, etc, I don’t think this finish can ever be duplicated.

                            And yet another outstanding example of a piece of history. In 100% agreement with Volko...this pistol deserves better photography. Thanks for posting...again.

                              If anyone is a photo bug and wants to take a shot at really trying to get good shots, lmk. It’s very difficult to capture the mirror like finish
