So true! I think they only made about 1,000 .380 ACP models just for US imports.

17-6, full lug, partridge sights & combat grips; as it came from the factory in 1989.



66-3 3" with smooth Nill-Griffe carry grips



FN Herstal FiveseveN Indivdual Officer's Model (IOM) that I had done as a Battlestar Galactica tribute. Sacrilege, I know, but intended to thumb my nose at the FN collectors that drove the prices up on these to $4k at one point.



S&W 2206-TGT w/ Nill-Griffe target stocks / S&W 622-VR with factory thumbrest walnut stocks

Best I could do now is an HK Elite in 45.

Previously I've owned a S&W 610 3" with target sights-custom wood grip, and trigger job so sweet. It was 1 of 300 from Lew Horton order in the 90's. Also had a Spanish copy of a webbley .455 made in 1917 or so.

I so regret selling the 610 but I was moving overseas at the time for an indefinite period.

Wow! You're the only other person I know who has one of these. I've only seen another one once in person. Mine... I had to buy it twice! Roll Eyes Ex-Mrs took it when she left, and I bought it back from her. Big Grin A neat little pistol, for sure.


Bruce Gray has one he won in a match. He posted about it (a few years ago) when I asked about mine, which had a factory defect. His did the same thing, which he fixed. I had mine sent to Colt and they fixed it (free of charge). I had purchased it used from Gander Mountain. I've come across a few for sale in the last couple years.

Do you know that the Beretta Noes share the same mags?


I did not know that about the mags... thank you for that knowledge!

May I ask... what was the defect? I'm not aware of anything being wrong with mine, but I'm still curious.

most 3" guns with rubber grips are going for quite a bit more. I was happy to get a sweet gun without overpaying

I want that 17. The full lug barrels look so much better to me.

Since 3" M66 are popular in this thread, here's one I found at Greentops in Richmond, VA a few years ago...



And here's another one I bought at an estate auction in PA and got shipped back to FFL in NC...

I had the stainless Colt .22. It is a good functioning little pistol. Mine sold to a Police Officer who went to Iraq to train other Officers. Thats a good little gun.

I have a a Colt 1911 that I read is a precurser to the series 70. The serial number is followed by ”BB” which stands for barrel bushing. It has been factory accurized. Very accurate. It has the standard lettering used before the series 70 lettering. My understanding is that less than 1000 of these transition models were made before Colt began labeling them with the “Series 70” lettering.
