My ANIB '93 Capitan is same way, absolutely stunning bluing. But I'm going to shoot the little beauty as often as time and tired old body permits and as much as I can afford to these days.

I guess we should thank POTUS and Congress for that.

There were also fantastic hi-power clones, made in various contries. Some of them can fetch prices as high as a real browning or FN. I have one made in Argentina, an FM. I paid $200 for it, with night sights and extended controls. The finish on it is about 80%, but I'm not too concerned about how a carry gun's finish is, as long as it's not rust. I need to have it refinished, but for now, here's how it sits, with hogue grips. The origionals were like gripping a beer can with a trigger. It had the mag safety removed before I got it, but I really didn't care for the large take-up, or over-travel it had. After polishing the hammer and sear, I put a small bead on the front of my trigger as an over-travel stop and fit it. I also had to fit the trigger bar. I was amazed the way the trigger actuates through the slide, and not through the frame like a 1911 or so many other pistols. Now this is truely like a 1911 trigger. Very short travel, equally short reset.
