These narrow framed Colts were the rage back in the old days and with a little care and upgrading make excellent carry pistols today. They have a very, very low profile, decent capacity and were accurate and reliable.
They carry well on the hip and in a shoulder rig, natural rounded edges, and have few sharp edges. That's why we called it the Legacy carry.
They had one other attribute, they were very pleasant to fire, little kick and a grip that anyone seemed comfortable with including smaller hands. This is a fantastic firearm for the little woman with small hands after it has been checked and updated by our gunsmiths.
Maybe it was a hand me down from your Dad or you found one at a gun show. We stripped the blue, cleaned up the edges, hard chromed the parts over a flash of nickel, new grips, gave it a street tune and Voila!
