    Colt 1st Generation Back Strap.

    I was bitten by the itch to collect some guns and maybe try the CAS shooting. I watched various sites and ended up buying a Colt SAA 45 - Nickel plated "C" engraved and never turned. The back strap has been engraved with "To Brian with Love Joe". I thought I would just get a "New", lol, back strap and have it engraved and plated to match what I bought. It was while trying to buy a back strap I learned that the "Great Colt Company" was not very supportive of their products, and as a matter of fact they suck. I have been in contact with a few pistolsmiths and those who have a back strap are afraid to send it to me in Canada. I did get one from a guy in Texas, but it has seen better days. He sent it as antique parts. If anyone out there can help please send me a note.

    Drive south, and take a short vacation.
    Buy the inoffensive replacement part in a Seattle gunshop.
    Bring it home as a used part.
