I recently purchased a few brand new Colt 1991A1 Commanders in Ca, before our BS15 law. Anyway, the first one I bought was back in October. It was excellent in fit and finish, fed it over 300 rounds of factory ammo, not one hiccup. It had the older throating, crescent moon type cut, but it had a black barrel. Lock up was good, no rattle, VERY accurate for a stock 1911. Second one I bought was in December. This was a 1991A1 Commander but this one had a stainless barrel with the new type of throating. I put 150 rounds thru this gun again not one hiccup, and accurate and no rattle. Both guns IMHO are probably the best buys I've made in 2000. The new Colts are very much underrated and underestimated by many. I do have a question for you Col, have you experienced different barrels in your 1991A1's you got this year? Like I said the 1991A1 Commanders I bought came with different barrels, one was black with older throating and the other was stainless with the new throating. I called Colt and was told by the customer service clerk that the two were made in the year 2000 so they are recent production guns. Also what do you think of the new Defenders? I heard that the new Defenders are the XSE parts and not the older Defenders made a few years ago with the XS Colt Competition parts, but if the Defenders are new production guns I'm hoping they are made tight and reliable like recent production 1991A1's.
