Here's an unusual item that is seldom seen. This is a Colt MK 4 Series 70 Government model with a vintage Seecamp double-action conversion in 45 ACP. The Seecamp conversion was an ingenious concept designed by Louis Seecamp (founder of L.W. Seecamp, makers of the now famous LWS32 Seecamp pocket pistol) which updated the Colt 1911 to DA/SA operation. The double-action conversion got the company started but from what I have been able to determine, only about 2000 were produced on various 1911 type pistols. This is an original Seecamp conversion as can be determined by the work and the small LWS stamped on the side of the trigger guard. It allows a double action first shot with normal single action follow-up shots. The pistol can still be carried "cocked and locked" if desired and the function of the thumb safety and grip safety remain unchanged. The new internal parts are serial numbered to the gun and the original serial number was relocated to the bottom of the dust cover. Field stripping remains unchanged from that of the standard Colt 1911 and it uses standard Colt magazines of which the 2 originals are included. Overall condition is excellent with about 99% blue finish remaining. There are some light handling marks on top and on one side of the slide. This pistol has spent almost its entire existence in a collector's safe and has an almost non existent round count.
