    Hi guys, this is my first post so if I break any rules please let me know! I just bought this Colt last night from the original owner. He bought it new when he was in the AirForce in the 90's and shortly after bought a Govt Model. He said he shot 36 rounds through it since it was new (2 15rd...

I have been shooting and loading for a few months now and have yet to achive the accuracy I hope for. I...
