Nice looking Colt. I remember they had a very smooth action.

Mine mostly does. Timings a little off. I’ve got the DA guide to colts coming along with a new hand. Shaving a tiny bit of lead in SA once or twice per revolution and a little hang up cocking they hammer once around.

Not positive I can lengthen the existing hand. But hoping I can just peen the existing hand slightly and get it back in time. But want a new one on hand in case it looks like it’s already been worked on (can’t recall what it looked like when I had the side plate off)

Incredibly smooth in DA and very smooth trigger.

Perhaps the tolerance stack of the extra .0005 dia from the bullet coating , and Colt throat dia @ minimum . ( Old school Colts had bore dia of .356 vs .357 for S&W . )
