Can anyone here help me identify this pistol? Or reccomend a shop or gunsmith in the Seattle area who could? I've been looking at all sorts of Colt serial number charts and various websites and I'm coming up empty. I'd like to know how old it is and what this HD work is all about. Should have I have a smith inspect it for safety before taking it to the range? Serial number is 70S265xx. It's a .38 super caliber. I just assumed it was a .45 auto like every other 1911 I've ever owned and fired. My fault for not checking before purchase. Guessing that lowers the value? Condition appears new & unfired. I don't see any handling marks. Magazine looks like it's been removed from the gun but never loaded. Slight drag mark along the sides but throat is clean. I did find a very long and detailed invoice from a Harrison Design and consulting LLC folded up in the soft case with it. Invoice just lists all the work done, date, serial number of the gun and Peerless. Might be the gun smiths name, not sure. Name on the invoice matches the name of the person I bought it from and he had a WA CWP so I'm not worried about the history on it. Any help at all nailing down what this is would be appreciated. I'm hesiant to take this thing to the range until I know more about it. Sorry about the poor quality cell phone picture, I'll have to dig up my digital camera this weekend.
