Thanks Harold. Your dads gun has gone to a good home. :wavey:

Brought it home and carefully disassembled each part, cleaned with Hoppes and gave a good wipe down with Weaponshield. She is pristine, just like advertised. This gives me an original mfg. Series 70 and a 2011 Series 70 to go with my small collection of Colts.

Anyone thinking of doing business with Harold Mayo, he's a good guy. Thanks again !

a hearty "congratulations", and a dose of envy. My first centerfire pistol was a 1976 series 70, brand new.

Very nice.
You do know that the trigger is not the original ?

Say what? it is identical to the '76 I had. I purchased it new during the 76-77 Xmas break.

:dunno:

Thanks guys. She's a sweety. I almost can't bring myself to shoot it. :)

Sorry Jim. It's all original. Check production models during that time frame.

I really like the NRM on the gun too. The smaller letters are really elegant. Anyone else have some Series 70's you'd like to show off ? Love me some ole slabsides. :)

Congratulations are in order my good man.

Just something about a Colt!

Good find indeed!!! I scored a well used but still functional 1974 a couple of months back. Yeah, the trigger is factory.

That gun had some use. I like the looks of a gun that's been used but not abused. How is the accuracy with the collet bushing ?

Very nice. I've got a '76 large-letter shooter. Your trigger looks the same as mine.

That gun is very well used and I got it for $400.

There must be something in the water (or collet bushing), but it groups well with the GI style sights.

Good base for a custom piece.
All I use are vintage 70's when I'm coming up with a project pistol.

They are a good base gun but this one will remain completely original throughout it's life with me. It's beautiful in its original design. ;):wavey:

Truly a beautiful work of art.
My Colt is a 1978, purchased then, by me, but I've done a few mods in that time, most notably had it Armoloyed and new sights.

Love that gun, but, looking at that, I wish I had bought 2 and kept one cherry like that one.

My EDC is also a 1978 model - a Commander. I recently had it plated with NP3+ by ROBAR and now carry it everyday without worrying about it rusting.

OP - that is a beautiful weapon! If I had another one to use for a shooter, I'd also keep it mint.

This one will get shot, just not much. No holster carry either. I'll use my Series 70 2011 model for that. ;)

That is a nice one... It's getting hard to find a nice original one at a decent price..... I just picked up a 1971.... nice but not as pretty as yours! I'm returning mine to original except for some Harrison Retro sights that I have ordered.....
