Sam Colt later collaborated with Eli Whitney Jr. to successfully integrate the assembly line and interchangeable parts into what became Colt’s Patent Fire-Arms Manufacturing Company in Hartford,CT.
ELW grips are VZ G-10 Proprietary Disruptive Hyena Burl with a unique “Super Scoop” The new ‘Super Scoop’ blends smoothly with the grip and gives extra thumb relief for easy access to the mag release button for fast mag changes.
