Guys,
You are welcome to use the photos on your sites.
As per my earlier post, it possibly is an unique photo of four "Irish Swords" all Brothers in Arms.
Serial numbers are , from front to back, 708, 586,389 & 993.
Note the "first 1000" Aut-ord-Co bullet logo on the top of the receivers.
I did a close up of that but Lion Heart could not get it to post.
I just wish I could bring them to the show in August but I might get "Hit" for excess baggage. rolleyes.gif
Kind wishes
Murray.

Awesome Murray!

Being of Direct Irish heritage it means a lot!

I would love to place them on my site as a historical note.

Seeing that the 27 doesn't have a long line of history, the site will grow and host it's cousins.

That is the only Colt Thompson I would sell mine to buy. An Irish Sword. At the risk of flames, I will post that those are the only Colts with any history worth paying the extra bucks for.
