The MA Attorney General's list of acceptable handguns here in the People's Republic only governs what dealers may sell. If something is truly C&R (and obviously if you have your 03 FFL) it can be shipped directly to you without going through an 01 FFL and therefore the list is moot. It's basically the same with an in-state private sale, and SAAs change hands here every day. In both cases you do need to then register the gun within a week using a MA Form FA-10.

And to answer the obvious question . . . because (1) I have family here and (2) I have a good job here, but (3) as soon as I retire in a couple years I'm moving to a free state.

I look forward to seeing that 1911.

Interesting how Colt Mfg. will mail out news releases, but the most recent "NEWS" on their website is from June 1, 2004.

Tomob1,

That means the slots in the screws all line up the same. It looks very nice! You can see an example below, although I don't know if that's from the factory or a later gunsmith. Nevertheless, I'm happy with it! :)

i was always told that meant the screws were 'clocked' or 'registered'...

it all depends on where in the country youre from i guess...

When I saw the thread title I remember thinking, "ANOTHER 1911 and ANOTHER SAA".
Was I right?

I don't know. Maybe I got it wrong. I honestly don't know what "clocked" or "registered" mean.

The press Release from Colt only went to dealers
I agree, the Colts Mfg website could do with a makeover!
