Our Assessment: Here is the one that got away, a third gen. Colt .45 with fabulous grips. The fit is so sharp, that we would assume these to be factory, though the box is not marked. There is little if any use/wear evident on the revolver and it is quite possibly unfired since leaving the factory. This is the standard f the industry, for literally over a century.
