    Description     Shipping and payments     Additional information  
This pistol was customized by Armand Swenson back in 1980 in his Fallbrook workshop. Unfortunately, the paperwork is no longer available to document the conversion. Were the paperwork be available, this gun would be selling for double the price.

The grips are standard Pachmayer grips that I replaced the original grips with. I didn't keep them as they had deteriorated. There is no stippling or checkering on the front straps.

The only stamps that Swenson has are on the safety and his trademark stamping of the first initial of my last name on the second lug of the sights. He didn't put a stamp on the inside of the slide but just scratched my last name instead. No other stamps are on the gun.

There is no barrel positioner since he apparently only added this for when he used the original colt barrels. In mine he put a BarSto barrel that doesn't need the positioner.

However, when you examine and shoot the gun, you will know that it is his work.

The following work was performed on the gun: Bar-sto barrel Ambidextrous safety. New S&W K-frame rear sight. Ramped front sight. Enlarged ejection port. Beveled magazine opening to faciliatate magazine insertion into handle. Trigger pull reworked. Plus other enhancements to make the gun a reliable shooter.

New Pachmayr grips have been installed.

The gun comes with 7 clips of varying capacities, some made of stainless steel.
