I know the "Colt Custom" markings are...controversial here but I wanted to share my shiny new 1911. I really wanted to get my hands on a new Colt bearing the Royal Blue finish to see how it compares to 1911s and Pythons of the past. Also I wanted to have a polished Royal Blue Colt that I shoot without getting heartburn over damaging original factory finish. I have to say this new Royal Blue finish is very impressive in person. I hope my photos do it justice...
