I was finally able to get a second to take photos of the Colts. The Kimber is my new project gun

KIMBER Custom Carry (Series I)

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.

...[W]hat did they use that block of steel on the dust cover for?
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.
