Identifying a Fitz

One pretty sure method of ID'ing a real Colt factory Fitz model is whether the Colt "VP in a triangle" or Verified Proof stamp is present on the left REAR of the trigger guard.

Colt always stamped the VP on the left FRONT of the trigger guard, but when the trigger guard was cut off during the custom modification, the "VP" was cut off with it.
So, Colt stamped the "VP' on the rear.
No "VP in a triangle" on the left rear of the guard, it's not a genuine factory Fitz.

Truth is, ONLY a Colt Archive letter will tell for sure if it's a genuine factory Fitz.
