Yes it is mine! It came in the mail yesterday. I bought it on Gun Broker. It is absolutely mint.  Made in 1966

That is gorgeous!
I'd be afraid to shoot it, though.

I do not plan to shoot this gun. As I mentioned, the seller says his dad, a collector, bought it new and never fired it. I have had it apart and there is no sign of it having been shot. I have lots of BP revolvers that I shoot so I figure I do not need to shoot all of them.  :)

Sound logic.
I have five I haven't shot yet.
I intend to rectify that this summer...LOL!

Only one of my 2nd generation Colts have been fired. I shoot it but not the others. My wife has asked me why I do not shoot them and I tell her because they loose about 1/3 of their value. She then always asks when I plan to sell them and of course I do not so she puts her 2 cents in.................... :P
