Colt Government Series 70 frame hand engraved by legendary Colt master engraver Leonard Francolini. This is one stunning masterpiece here! Deep relief hand engraved scroll work that is incredibly detailed. When you look at this peice its mind blowing that someone can do this by hand. The mag catch, slide catch lever, thumb safety, and hammer are 24k gold plated. The grips are vintage pewter grips by another Colt master engraver John Adams and they are signed and dated. I acquired this frame directly from Leonard Francolini and will provide correspondence between him and I for provinonce as well as his contact information so that you may inquire directly to him about the piece. I will of course only give that information to the buyer. I'm pricing it very affordable for this kind of work at $2500. Price reduced now to $2000. I will not take any less and will remove listing to go to auction if not sold in the next several days. I may consider trades or partial trades with nice Colts taking most interest but I will be very picky. I'm actively looking for Colt 1877 thunderer and lightnings, Defender preferably in 9mm, SAA, and Python..would also be interested in a nice sub gun. Keep in mind most of his pistols were in the $20k-50k range. His work is in museums across the world and the list of clients that have commissioned him is insane. Must meet close to Carrollton.
