If I were you, I'd consider leaving your Colt all
original. You got to it for 200 $? Nice.
I agree. If it is truely all Colt, meaning somebody didn't just build it from a mixed bag of parts, then leave it all original. Yours appears to be all original based on your pictures. I would be interested to know how old it is because some of the very low serial numbered colts can go for 2-5 thousand dollars.
Now if you are dead set on adding accessories then you can remove the front handguards and replace them with something like a quad rail that you can then mount a flashlight, laser, or whatever you heart desires. BUT SAVE THE ORIGINAL HANDGUARD!
Practice doesn't make perfect, it make permanent.
When I hear a Liberal say "I can speak for gun owners because I own a shotgun" I just want to scream "Well I can speak for vegetarians because I like lettuce on my cheeseburger!"
