Actually just an addition on the Contender. Resccoped, ambi grips, picatinney rail and quick connect scope rings.

Took quite awhile to set FOV. Scope is 2x-7x but it sits nice at 3x-5x magnification. Should be a fun shooter.

Today I picked up two guns on layaway and sealed the deal for what I wanted to pay for another Kimber.

Having sold many 45’s I had nothing for a range/nightstand gun. Picked up this sweet RIA with some nice upgrades. Added a set of VZ grips I had laying around.

Image

Remington 870 Wingmaster pump in 410 bore. 410 collection just about complete.

Image

Image

And sealed the deal on this one. Manufactured 2016-2017 only. High polish with Rose Gold outlines.

Picked up my latest Kimber today. Seller said two magazines down the pipe. Looks less to me. Wanted the Elite since release in 2016 but was just to expensive. Discontinued in 2017 but prices remained high. This will be treasured and passed on. Came with two magazines, case, lock and paperwork. I will never sell it.

Out in the Shop messing around and thought I would dress up the Colt. Have a Cooks holster in CF ordered.

Maybe CF grips? Hmmm...wait on holster and see.

Few things today. Well, several in fact.

Changed up the grips on the 38 Super. Much better. A little polish in the morning.

Image

Picked up my Henry 410 bore lever action. Installing a large loop lever. No pictures at this time.

Also in the mix is a Canik TP9 SF, Berretta INOX Bobcat Model 21 A and another Colt 22 caliper. These three (3) go into the safe.

And the Big Boy later today.....stay tuned,

Nice pistols. I really want a 1911. Maybe someday. For now I am enjoying my V2.

The Rampant Colt

Post by runeight » Fri May 24, 2019 8:35 pm

I’m selling off several of my 45 caliper collection and a few revolvers to invest in higher value firearms. Firearms you can turn a nice profit not to mention admire.

This is a limited edition Colt 38 Super, number 238 of 500. “The Rampant Colt”. I wanted a lower number but availability is almost nil. Since I purchased this last week the value with some sellers has risen $300 to $400 on Gun Broker. My plan is to sit on this for a couple of years and watch the prices. I have seen several Sellers asking more than a grand for what I paid last week however they are low numbered. Will see.

I have yet to clean up the oil but the pictures speak for themselves. I will run a patch down the barrel but I will not rack the gun. I have some silicone gun socks coming so this also will sit in a humidified safe. Beautiful in person, I’ll wear a mask when viewing.

My pictures weren’t the best so I posted some stock photos to highlight the engraving. Silver, gold and black.

If you find that the SF is not sold, drop me a note with what you are asking for it...

Found some better pictures (hard to find) of my Lew Horton 45, number 15 of 15 on first run. Due in two weeks, can’t wait! I see number 24 on GB. High polish blue, gold and silver scrolling.

Must wear mask when viewing.

She sure is beautiful, but what does she look like when she gets up in the morning, before her makeup?

Unlike women, just as good as before. After 20 years, still beautiful. ;-) :lol:

Lew Horton Colt series 70 45 caliper, number 15 of first run of 15. Pictures don’t do justice to the deep blue finish. Engraving stunning.

Already offered $350 more than I paid. Just brought it home yesterday. Declined.
