A local gun store has a Colt XSE Lightweight Government is stock.

It's rare to find any new Colts in stock here in California.

Are these Aluminum frame guns as reliable and durable as the steel versions?

The price is $1199 which seems kind of high, but then everything seems kind of high these days.

Does anyone have one of this model? How do you like it?

Another question is are these Novak carry sights adjustable for windage (left and right)?

Turns out the issue is moot.

I went to the LGS and the lightweight 1911 Government 45ACP isn't on the list of guns that can be purchased by the public in California. So it is for sale only to LEOs.

They also had a Gold Cup and it too was marked LEO Only.

Makes a lot of sense that a target pistol with an eight round magazine can't be purchased unless you are a peace officer.

But the public can buy several models of 45 ACP Glocks with 10 round mags and that's OK.

I think it's also OK to buy the XSE Commander, but not the Government.
