  1. Semi-Auto Handguns
    Finally decided the next gun on my list is a Colt Government Competition 9mm. (I want to upgrade 1911-style 9mm from a Star Super B. It's new, comes with a bunch of good stuff, and seems reasonably priced. Wondering, however, has anyone tried one? My LGS just got one in on trade and I'll be...

    Just picked this up- 1994 Colt 1911 MKIV series 80 in bright stainless. not perfect but very nice. I always wanted a mirror polished 1911 in 45. Came with the original box, all the paperwork AND the original bill of sale from 1994. Bought new from T&T for $649.95. Special thanks to PandM on the...

    How much play is there supposed to be between the slide and the receiver? My SA 1911 is super tight. when I shake my Colt 1911 I can actually hear a little bit of, for lack of a better word, a rattle. Normal? not normal? a symptom of being shot a lot?
  5. Semi-Auto Handguns
    Before I pay too much for yet another potential safe queen, I figured I'd ask the peanut gallery what they thought. Its a 30+ year old Colt series 80 1911 "enhanced". Its in bright stainless. Not sure if its a factory finish or done after the gun was manufactured. Its in really nice shape with...

    Thinking of picking up a Colt 1911 in 9mm. I know if it is a 9mm it is not a 1911 yadayada but figure it may save on cash since i do not roll my own ammo YET. Anyone have any experience with it?

  8. Semi-Auto Handguns
    I visited my local gun store Upstate that is a Master Kimber dealer, 5 new K6 revolvers coming in on order. The owner knows I'm a 10 mm guy and brought out this cool Pistol from Colt. A little holster wear, double action pull was very smooth. I know these pistols are rare. Price was a little...

    We have more pistols then we can fit in our display cases. This thread will be used to show some of the Colt pistols we have in stock, both new and used. We are listing four pistols today.

    Colt released their pistols they are adding to their line up in 2016. I like their Competition 1911 they are adding and that Combat Unit pistol looks to be nice. Glad to see Colt is adding Front Strap Checkering to more of the 1911's, a feature which they were lagging behind. Colt Combat Unit...

    Does any LGS have one of the new blued full sized Government Models around MSRP? I think it's time for me to join the cult of 1911. Preferably in Nassau.
  12. Semi-Auto Handguns
    I know a couple of you have posted that you have this pistol. Just looking for feedback, and I am looking to grab one before the end of the year (Colt still have a free holster/magazine giveaway if purchased on or before 12/31/15). Venturing into .45 caliber and wanted something that I could...
  13. AR Rifles
    A friend has a colt AR. That will not cycle .223. He was told that he has to run a lot of 556 though it before it will cycle. That sounds like song and dance to me. My question is. If he installs a lighter buffer spring, might that help?
  14. Semi-Auto Handguns
    As you guys know I'm in love with my M45A1. Sadly the finish wasn't holding up like i expected. Colt does have a one year fit and finish warranty so I decided to take advantage of it. Pistol is my favorite shooting 1911 ever. So I decided before calling Colt up directly I dwell on the 1911...

    From the early 1970's, came in the cardboard box with a Cobra .38 Can we tell who the gun was marketed to? BTW, very proud of my very cheap Epson scanner! Nice job!

    So this topic is halfway between the earlier Miss November post about awesome Colts and the topic called "post a picture of something no one else has." We have a .40 S&W Colt 1911, as seen here. Colt verified that it was only made in one year, 1991.
