Armand Swenson Custom Colt Series 70 Government .45 ACP (C12077)
Armand Swenson Custom Colt Series 70 Government .45 ACP caliber pistol. A beautiful custom conversion by one of the grand masters of the pistolsmith craft, Armand Swenson. The gun has many of the features that Swenson is famous for, such as the squared trigger guard, Smith & Wesson revolver rear sight, Swenson proprietary thumb safety, checkered frontstrap, flared ejection port, serrated rear of slide, and chrome finish, as well as being tuned for accuracy and function. The barrel is a Bar-Sto and is marked on the bottom by the link. The slide is marked “A.D. Swenson/Gardena, Calif” on the left side, as is the frame under the serial number. A great example of the early classic style of custom combat pistol.
