    Nice Colts. Who built the modded 1961? I have a 1969 John Giles Colt with the extended rib. Also what did they use that block of steel on the dust cover for?

    I know that the following is an old, old question.
    But the answer is valuable to even today's shooters.

    It adds weight to the pistol as a steadying device, for shooting with only one hand at 25 and 50 yards.
    Muzzle-heavy pistols feel steadier in a well-practiced hand.

    Some of you have sufficient experience to know that, in NRA-bullseye-style competition, muzzle-heavy rifles also offer an advantage.

    Is that a Clackamas Kimber? Gotta be a pre-Series II but that thumb safety doesn't look like a newer Yonkers gun..

    That is a Kimber Custom II. I took off the rubber grips and add Kimber's wood grips. Totally changed the look of the gun. It is almost like putting a set of rims on a car. Makes a world of difference.

    When I buy a handgun is to carry and use. Not to hang on a wall, or store in the back of the safe.
