My 1921 Colt Display
Posted 28 November 2015 - 07:59 PM
this is the same one i had,but i had to weather it to make it look like a 94 year old gun.the wood is done by dan block that i refinished in a sedona red and mahogany stain to give it the red vintage color.i used a 6500 grit paper to rub off the bluing in the high spots .before i weathered it to me it looked like an airsoft display...too new and shiny.i even created the wear marks on the top of the receiver to mimic the wear of the actuator .this one is numbered 2347 after the valentines day gun.

I believe I have a similar D.R. receiver.
How did you do the inspector stamp?
and how did you make the "actuator wear pattern" on top of the receiver?....Phil

Mark this is fantastic. Your attention to detail is exquisite. May I ask how long this took you to put together?

Thanks for the reply. May I ask the dreaded question? How much did this piece cost to put together? I ask because I have thought about doing this myself...

The reciever is a richardson and parts were from a ' 28 kit.if you can afford to buy one of his recievers do it soon as he is just about ready to call it a day on production,these are exquisite in every way and the engraving is superb.

Thanks for the advice. I have a M1928A1 military kit that looks great, but nothing beats the classic bluing and no compensator look of the 1921.
