i'm on the hunt for a new colt 1911. I'm thinking I want the colt rail gun so i could put a flashlight on it. I just wanted to know what people who own colt rail guns in 45 acp think of this pistol? I also was wondering about finish durability? is the finish scratch prone? thanks for your time.

My black ceracote Rail Gun is awesome. Crazy accurate. Fantastic trigger right out of the box. It just really doesn't wear with the ceracote finish. I love everything about the gun. If you want a 1911 with a rail, the Colt Rail Gun is the one to have.

I waited to find the black ceracote rail gun and was glad I did. I love the gun, it shoots well, and feels better than my .40 cal; no complaints. I am waiting for Surefire to come out with their x400 with the green laser. They told me last month that it should be out in August but that was one reason I wanted the rail as well. I can't imagine that you will be disappointed. I have only put about 1,000 rounds through mine and stripped it a few times but there have been no issues or concerns on scratching or durability to date. I have not had any issues with the sights as mentioned by "quicksilvergoat".

I have the stainless steel model. I have a very early one. The slide feels like it's on bearings. Been waiting for a black rail for the wife since November. Good luck.

I have not had the Cerakote on any weapon at all yet. Is it really that durable? I dont mean "drop it a side walk and expect no scratches". But the everyday wear at like the range, cleaning, holster wear is a biggie. Can you expect it to hold up well against these things? My new Sig MK 25, nice gun, but just 2 or 3 quick tests for fit in a Blackhawk, and you would think it spent a season riding on my hip.
