She has a tad bit of wear, a few corrosion pits from the gawd awful wrap-around grips.
Original steel reinforced polymer spring guide & double recoil spring set installed.
All in all,........she's a peach for an '88 Colt, it's been fired around 500 rounds.

No Sir,.......I've been trying to get this one in MY safe for about six years.
It does need to have a plunger tube installed, spring set & a new firing pin.
Pin seems bent,........lord knows how that happened.

Wow, for $450, that's a DEAL! Are you going to work any "magic" on it, or leave it as she is (doing the things you've already noted)?

Not quite sure Sarge.
The more I think of it, I may just replace the plunger tube & call it a day.

Definitely a good deal on a nice pistol. The incoming grips sure would look good on it.

That they may,........I was actually thinking of having Sarge make me a set
of Ivory micarta with a pair of Delta medallions inset.

Nice pick-up at a super price! Mine is from the same build year and has been great. Enjoy & have fun shooting her. If you are going to replace the spring/gr, you can pick up a single spring set-up to use with a std gr. If it is the original recoil spring, even with only 500 rds, I suspect it needs to be replaced.

Just ordered a G/R and a few 23 lb springs tonight.

Thanks Guys! :supergrin:

You lucky dog! That's an awesome gun and probably the best steal of a deal I've heard of in a LONG time. Congrats! :thumbsup:

Great deal even if you had to wait six years for it, you need to tell us the story on it!

....you need to tell us the story on it!

A friend bought it in 1988. I shot it. I wanted it. I tried to buy it for 6 years.
I bought it. I shot it. I will own it for at least six years.
