Kind of you to say, Colt-SL. I know alot of fellas like their Colts un-modified...and for the most part so do I. But the two .45's are work guns and have been for an awfully long time. They were made absolutely reliable and accurate and I have trusted my life to them on a number of occasions.Gorgeous, thanks for posting!
I am interested in acquiring one so have been doing a little research myself. I have the new alloy Defender 9 mm coming but I would like a Bright SS Officer's Model in .45ACP, too.I just picked up a Colt Officers 45ACP... Does anyone know the history of these pistols?
Shawn, usually the E designates the model as enhanced. The one in the photo in post #1, with similar but earlier serial number than yours dates, according to Colt's, to being made in 1996.Sorry for replying to an old post but I just picked up a Colt Officers 45ACP in Bright Stainless which is very similar to the one in the photo. My serial number is SF15XXXE which put it in the mid to late 80's from what I can tell. Does the E designate a custom shop gun or does it mean enhanced? Does anyone know the history of these pistols?
