Purdy! Nice grips.

The firearms not baby horses. Somebody will take that out of context with out me clarifying.

Very sharp looking. I especially like the grips too.

Support the entire Constitution, not just the parts you like.
Common sense is only right wing if you are too far to the left.
A pistol without a round chambered is an expensive paper weight.

Are these new colts the same Colts our grandpas talked about? Keep in mind I’m 24. I used to hear that the Colt was the end all be all 1911. I’m not an expert by any means on 1911’s and I don’t know very much about them. I have been on a quest for a 1911 in the future and would like to get one in 9mm. I will be following this post for knowledge.

Beautiful! Sadly, I can only dream about a pistol like this, but I keep buying those Texas Lottery tickets....

I shot a Colt in the marine corps back in the 70's a 45
Mine is a series 70 and all the parts are the same except the 2x recoil springs. 1911 is by far my fav weapon. No trigger imho can match a 1911 and this Colt is by far the best right out of the box compared to my rugers, sig, para.
