As of the printing of the Fall issue of the Rampant Colt magazine, the 2019 Frisco, Texas ECLF raffle gun is still being assembled. There will be photography of the revolver and photographs of the raffle winner in the Winter issue of the magazine.
The 2019 Elizabeth Colt Legacy Foundation raffle gun is a Colt Single Action Army with a cross pin frame in .45 caliber with a 5 ½” barrel. Denise Thirion has used “B” plus Expert level engraving. The hammer and front sight are also engraved. The revolver is nickel-plated with Ink & Bake accents. Included is a fire blue package that encompasses the base pin, ejector rod head, trigger and all screws. The screws are qualified. The stocks are exotic giraffe bone. They have been expertly fitted and donated by Emily and Tyler Cusson of Nutmeg Sports. The Foundation appreciates their continuing support.
Denise Thirion has been our engraver of choice for many years and continues to excel in producing fine collectible firearms for the Foundation. Denise uses the European style of engraving that she learned at Fabrique Nationale. She is also influenced by the older engravers, L. D. Nimschke and Rudolph Kornbrath; as well as the more modern engravers, Ken Hunt and Winston Churchill. The Foundation appreciates her continuing support. We also extend our thanks to Joelle Bee, Denise’s daughter, for her efforts on our behalf.
