Mazer, you have the only Colt I ever wanted,[other then the 1911] A Nickel Trooper MKIII!
Here's a pic of what my buddy called my "provider of women of the night gun", Its a Super Blackhawk I bought from a friend of mine that blew the cylinder out with a double load of Unique powder. I sent it back to Ruger they replaced the cylinder for $40, I had a local smith reblue it for me, since the grip frame and ejector housings are not steel he polished them along with the hammer and trigger and put the Orange insert in the front sight, the grips are a set of J-Scott's another friend gave me.
The picture does not do the bluing justice, its so deep you can almost reach into it, He [my gunsmith] did a High power for another friend of mine, it was the prettiest HP I have ever seen.

I was with my father in 1975 at a gun show when he purchased this 3rd Generation Colt SAA in .45 LC, he gave it to me shortly before passing away in 2000, it is still NIB and has never been fired outside the Colt factory.
After seeing MeatyMac's beautiful Colt I remembered this one. You have to standing really close to hit anything with it but its fun to shoot. I love how they packaged them back in the day. Todays boxed guns just do not have that artistic flair.
Here's a couple of mine .
This is a 1986 factory custom shop pre production prototype. In 1987 they were in the S&W catalog as the now famous Lew Horton series of 3" round butt N- Frame revolvers.
This is a 657 [.41 Mag]
This is a run of the mill M-29-2 6" built in 1982.
^" bbl and a real nice shooter. It wears a set of custom smooth Cocobolo Grips
What looks like marring on the muzzle is actually just reflections.
