    Just a quick question. I noticed on the slide of them, the word caliber is spelt "calibre" but says they were made in Hartford, CT. Can someone explain that to me who knows the history? And Reinhard, the two pistols look to be in great shape

    I think that calibre or caliber are both correct spellings
    here's a site where you can find the most important information regarding these colt models

    M-14 that is incredibly insightful. :) I had never even considered that. I can not appropriately express the joy that the concept gives me.

    You have greatly expanded my portfolio of potentially helpless internet targets. For that I am eternally grateful.

    Granted you are still a sick puppy, but I like it! :D Ken

    PS - Sorry for warping your thread Reinhard, enjoy the new additions! Ken :cool:

    calibre is the correct spelling of the word. caliber is kinda the ebonics version. its like colour being the correct spelling of color. they changed because it was easier for children in the 70s to learn incorrect spelling than teach the correct english spelling of certain words. cant hurt their feelings.
