Well, I can’t say much about the barrel cutting. I am always saying “It’s your gun. Do as you please with it.”.

I love those grips.

I agree, whomever got this Colt had no idea it would last this long and become a collector's item worth a bunch of money! It's still a shame that it's not in it's original condition.

That was done well over 100 years ago.  Colt was just another gun manufacturer and not the icon it eventually became.  Have you ever owned an item that now you wish you had taken better care of?  The fact that someone did that to the gun probably adds more to its historical value than the serial number itself.

True.  It was someone's gun and they can do what they like with it.

I see nothing wrong with bobbing the nose of that gun.

The blue one came from the factory with a seven and a half inch barrel. I had it cut to five and a half so it would match the stainless one. Also the five and a half inch barrel just feels better in my hand.

 

OH NO!!! HE'S RUINED THE COLLECTOR VALUE!!!!!!

As old as Coffinmaker is he's probably the one with the hacksaw!
