Nice Colt.
If you plan to keep it I have
an Old S.D.Meyer's holster for a Colt Lighting.
Shoot me a PM if interested.

Thanks. I probably won't end up keeping it. It's too nice for me and belongs with a real collector. It was an impulse buy based on the fire blue parts. Although some finish issues, mechanically is seems excellent and fired very little.

I would never presume to even fondle something like that at a show. What a beauty! Is the DA-pull actually 'usable', or is it more of a crunchenticker in operation?

Actually the action is very nice. I don't think this was shot much. Just storage and cleaning issues.
