Posted this in the Gallery, but reading the description, perhaps it should go here.

Just picked this up from Piper Custom. He did this Colt Custom Build for me. The grips are my "Starry Night" grips, although I'm sure that's not what Sarge from The Finer Grain calls them. I originally had a pair of Amboyna Burl grips which George fitted. They may go back on at some point. The gun was purchased before the more recent offerings by Colt for the Delta Elite. More like this originally though these pictures are not of the gun George used.

I don't have my photo setup any more so these are just iPhone pictures after greasing it up for the range. I'd like to do it justice with better photography, but don't have the setup right now. I hope to take it out for a spin soon.
