My Colt King Cobra after some restoration work

I garnet blasted the top flats, trigger, and hammer back to their original matte finish and then removed some minor blemishes from the body of the gun and then gave it a moderate shine. i also custom shaped a set of grips from my Anaconda to fit it. It turned out to look better than I had hoped.

That is one fantastic job on the restoration! A King Cobra was almost my first handgun. Should have bought one when I had the chance! Very nice photo too!

Can you put me in your will? It would be nice to inherit 1 or 2 of your beauties from your collection. That Colt turned out nice.

Playboy: You are da man......

That is simply beautiful.. I have a King Cobra and it pales in comparison to yours. The wood grips on all you guns are the "finishing touch" and really makes them stand out. Where do you get your custom grips made?
