Default Another Colt Project

This one was brought to me in need of some work. The barrel had been shortened due to a bulged barrel, when then they were working on it they snapped off the ejector rod.

The gun was made in 1913, and if that isn't cool enough it has a lanyard loop!

Anyway I am waiting to see what the owner wants to do with the gun, restore it or do something custom like a Fitz special.





part one is on my blog: http://tincanbandit.blogspot.com/2014/07/the-colt-new-service-project-part-1.html

The owner decided on a restoration, he found the correct factory 7.5" barrel




I have the gun apart ready to swap the barrel




I still need to contend with the broken ejector rod

My buddy made me a tool for getting the crane bushing out, unfortunately it failed to remove the bushing. I fear I may end up destroying the bushing trying to get it out.





I also discovered some chatter marks on the forcing cone of the replacement barrel, It doesn't appear to be lead. Looks like I will have to have it recut.
