  1. Colt Semiauto Pistols
    Hello gentlemen, New to the forum. First colt I've ever owned. I'm a revolver shooter and thought I would advance slightly through the decades to get a semi auto -designed in 1911 of course ;). I plan to shoot this colt fairly regularly and am prepared to reload. I have read in this and other...

    In the last few months I have been able to acquire two (2) M1911A1s, one from Cabela's / Bass Pro Gun Library and one from CMP. I already had a late Cold War-era M1916 holster and a WW2 holster, but got another WW2 holster from eBay last Friday. The Colt War era M1916 holster was still new in...
  3. Colt Semiauto Pistols
    Looking at 2 potential purchases. Only one may be finalized. Both are within $100 of one another in cost. First is a mid 1970s Government Model, blued 70 Series. Looks original, not molested / modified, normal wear and tear for age. Second is an Argentine 1927, made on Colt equipment in the...
  4. Colt Semiauto Pistols
    An inquiry directed to those predisposed to collecting the venerable 1911. Is it a certain era, maybe a caliber? With over a century in production, multiple calibers and barrel lengths, etc. I am inclined to focus on a segment of the Colt catalog. Personally my small collection is primarily...
  5. Colt Semiauto Pistols
    Starting out shooting, I always hated wood grips on 1911s. I loved the color and look of Walnut or Desert Ironwood, but everything I tried or that came with guns I bough was smooth, even if they were checkered! Happened to pick up a pair of Wood Caliber combat checkered grips and what a night...

    I have a 1960 1911 (unfired) Question: What does the "- C" officially mean after the serial number. I have had people tell me what they thought, but would like to know for sure. Thanks

  8. Colt Semiauto Pistols
    I know the "Colt Custom" markings are...controversial here but I wanted to share my shiny new 1911. I really wanted to get my hands on a new Colt bearing the Royal Blue finish to see how it compares to 1911s and Pythons of the past. Also I wanted to have a polished Royal Blue Colt that I shoot...

    I just joined today. I collect vintage Colt and S&W handguns along with an assortment of more modern guns from various mfg and styles. I am a weekend rifle range shooter but I am getting too old to hunt big game. I still like to get out on the river and confront hypothermia to get a few shots...

    Hello. My husband passed away and I was left with this US Govt issued Colt 1911. It’s been kept in a safe for as long as I have known and looking to get some information or a professional appraisal by someone who knows about this type of pistol.
  11. Colt Semiauto Pistols
    I recently inherited my grandfathers 1918 Colt 1911 - appears to have the 1913 slide with the Colt insignia on the slide back near the hammer (not inside circle). Serial number 23xxxx. Everything looks to be original based on the markings and my research besides maybe the barrel- unsure how to...

    This is my first handgun ever as I just turned 21 a month ago. I got this in a trade for my ar worth around 800$ + $150 cash, I think it was a great deal what do you guys think? It has some upgrades on it like the grips, it has a full rod and flat spring, trigger, all from wilson combat and...

  15. Colt Semiauto Pistols
    Any insights/observations regarding my most recent acquisition - 1973 Colt 1911 Government Model Series 70? The slide and frame appear to be two different materials. I was just curious to know what the experts thought about this particular firearm. Thank you in advance.
  16. Colt Semiauto Pistols
    Hello Everyone, Last year I purchased this pistol. I really love it, but have only had the chance to shoot a few times. The 1911 has no Colt Pony rolled into the slide. I had noticed this when I bought it, but thought I'd ask on the forums about why this gun has no pony. The SKU was...

    I have always wanted a Super .38 1911 but never came across one I liked. Then a couple years ago I cam across a deal for a Sig made barrel for one CHEAP! I figured that I had a extra 1911 frame handy, plenty of spare parts and so my only other real expense would be a slide so I jumped on it but...
