Austin Behlert Custom Colt .45 ACP caliber pistol. A fantastic Austin Behlert custom carry conversion of a Colt Series 70 Govern (c5201)

Austin Behlert Custom Colt .45 ACP caliber pistol. A fantastic Austin Behlert custom carry conversion of a Colt Series 70 Government Model. The National Match barrel has been cut to 4” with a custom barrel bushing and guide rod. The slide has been shortened and scalloped with the original markings removed, and now marked “Customized By Austin Behlert Crawford N.J.” The rear sight is an S&W revolver sight custom installed. The frame has been shortened and welded up with a finger groove and the trigger guard has been reshaped. The shortened mainspring housing, the bottom of the front gripstrap and the front of the trigger guard have been stippled. The gun is fitted with a Swenson ambi safety and a custom semi beavertail grip safety that has been deactivated. The magazine has been shortened to a 6 round capacity but is shorter than a standard Officers Model magazine. The gun has a hard chrome finish and is in excellent condition, with a wooden presentation case and an extra shortened magazine. An outstanding custom work of art, by one of the Old Masters of custom pistolsmithing.
