serial #70G70317, 45 ACP, 5'' Colt barrel with an excellent bore and has the ''mouse trap'' flat on the bottom. This precision shooting machine was engineered and assembled by master gunsmith and bullseye shooter Richard L. Shockey of El Reno, Oklahoma. This MK IV Series 70 pistol retains about 99% original and reapplied blue finish with light high edge wear, a few handling marks and the slide toning to plum. The front strap was heavily stippled then cold blued with the remaining surfaces retaining original finish. The grips are a beautiful set of checkered walnut Herrett's ''Automatic Target Gun Stock'' model that feature a palm rest, finger rest, thumb rest and remain in excellent condition. The gun has a number of features near and dear to a bullseye shooter's heart, although it is not equipped Shockey's signature ''mouse trap'' recoil spring plug but it does include: high mount Bo-Mar adjustable rear sight, ribbed front sight extension that increases sight radius to approximately 8 7/8''; accurized barrel, frame and slide; accuracy bushing with an ''R'' stamped on the front, trigger job, long trigger, stippled frontstrap and rod installed on triggerguard with sliding balance weight. Included with the gun is a single Chip McCormick Power Mag magazine with extended base plate. This is an impressive looking gun built by one of the old masters that should shoot as well as it looks.
