I caved in at the local gun shop a few years ago.

It's '59 Targetsman, and came with the original box and receipt, and a resale receipt from 61. Beautiful blue, I guess this is what Colt used to be. Accurate too. I saw it in the case and had to have it. Made the same year as me. :)

Very nice, i was very close to buying one a couple of years ago, the barrel was a bit shorter though, any cycling problems.

I have the same fetish for USA-made Guitars made in 1976.

Unfortunately in 1976 Detroit was turning out smogger-pigs and CA scrapped the rolling smog exemption at '75 so my car projects are always pre-'74 (Pre Federal-bumper) American cars.
