my boss finally picked it up and handed it off to me. Crazy nice. I handled this colt before the work. All I can say is

Quick back story, boss bought it then had some flooding in basement. By the time he got around to getting to the firearms rust settled in . It was not terrible but enough to make a new gun look like awful.
It needed a refinish .....who better if your going to do it.

Nice job Mr. Derr
That trigger is sweet like the taper.

Yes....im going to shoot it.

That is a sweet shooter. I really like the new generation of Colt Gold Cups. I just finished another one in hard chrome for a client. Nice that you are wearing gloves to keep your prints off John's gun.

I will run one course of “service pistol” then let John do what he wishes, shoot it or safe queen it

Do you keep the sear with the sear depressor and depressor spring when reworking a Gold Cup or replace with a standard sear?

I am not worthy. Its been way to long since I shot a full size
1st 10 shots I insulted this pistol hard.
Last 15 i think I did alright
25 yards 2 hand slow fire. I had a few really bad shots and caught myself pushing the nose down
Not the best ammo but its what the owner had on hand. Love to get some decent target ammo and time on this. Sadly I have to go back and settle for my barebones 1911.
