I can't believe how new it looks - I first thought it was a repro. Huge price difference from the reproductions though! Went for almost 100K where you can get a strikingly similar colt series that looks almost identical for $500 range.
Its nice to see this because it sort of authenticates the reproductions in terms of appearance of blueing, grips, and finish.
