    Officer Model 1911A1 question

    When did Colt start building the Officer Model 1911A1 for commerical sales?

    Three inch barrel and the frame bobbed off for a shorter magazine too.

    Are they all Series 80 or were there Series 70 firearms as well?

    Thanks folks,

    Re: Officer Model 1911A1 question

    '85, but it is not an Officer Model nor a 1911A1.

    An Officer Model is a revolver. A 1911A1 is only for denoting military "old slabsides" from 1924 or so, on.

    It has a 3.5 inch barrel and all are series 80's.

    To be correct.....It's an Officers ACP, or OACP.
    I prefer Colts.....Semper Fi

    It was the M1991A1. There was the Officer version and the Compact version. The Compact had a black parked finish and a plastic trigger. I put a short steel trigger in mine. The barrel is 3 5/8 inches.

    While there was a M1991A1 version, The Officers ACP predates the M1991A1 series guns by about 6 years.
    Enjoy the day
