The Colt Gustave Young 1911 is a royal blue polished series 70 .45 caliber model O1970A1CS handgun. It is one of 525 specially factory serialized handguns. Serial numbers are VJC001-VJC525

TALO's engraver embraced the style of Young's Germanic scroll and intricate inlay work as the basis for the pattern. The engraver imagined what Young might draw if he were given the opportunity to work on a 1911. This hand engraved pattern was faithfully reproduced on the firearm by the artisans at Baron Engraving. The scrollwork is selectively plated in silver. In addition the barrel bushing, hammer, magazine and slide release are high polished. In the tradition of exhibition firearms the remaining metal surfaces have been high polished in royal blue. The grips are unique high polished rosewood dymond wood material that are inscribed with a pattern that reflects the Young style. Grip screws are bight stainless hex style. This gun is a significant addition to TALO’s Colt Engraver’s Series.
