    Hi everyone, I just joined the forum and I have a couple questions about my Combat Commander. I looked up the SN and it said it was manuf. in 1975. First off I gave $500 for it.

    Have lots of questions on a Colt MK IV series 70 I got in a trade (saved it really from an incompetent owner :bang_wall:). The finish looks to be a satin, I think a nickel finish maybe?

  13. Colt Semiauto Pistols
    I'm a very new Colt owner, have a couple 1911's, a Python and a SAA. This has probably been asked and answered several times but I can't find any info. I have several questions about 1911 magazines as I'd like to get a couple more. How do you tell if a magazine is a genuine Colt? What do the...
