    I've waited 9 long months for this day!

    I finally got my 70 series 1911 National Match back from Colt. I sent it out to be completely refinished. They strip the gun down. Clean everything. Re-blue all the parts with National Match blue, test all the parts to make sure they meet Colt spec, re-assemble and test fire. When I got it I noticed they replace my trigger also. I can't wait to get it back out to the range. I've missed the old girl.

          Looks awesome! I am curios as well as to what the charge was for this. I been looking for a set of those grips for my GCNM as well.

              9 months is a long time to be without an important tool in Obama's new world.

                  Not bad looking, but they look a bit too bright(unlike myself lol), and don't really care for that edge border. Thanks for looking out Brutha.

                    Yes. The gun was completely stripped to bare metal and re-blued. Because "national Match Blue" costs a little more than regular blue the total was right around $450. What I like about Colt doing it was they also go through the gun and parts and make sure everything else meets their standards.

                      Neither, it was a Government trigger. The frame is a Government. The barrel, bushing and slide are National Match. All that was needed to make it complete was a NM trigger and they gave me that for free! Thanks Colt.
