    Nothing special about this gun and that’s kind of what I enjoy about the gun. Simplicity. I just spent a little time cleaning it up and putting Renaissance Wax on it. As much as I love my custom guns, the plain simplicity of this gun gives me a warm and fuzzy! let’s see your plain Jane’s.

    So I found a birth year Colt. It's not in great condition but not bad either. Question is do I send it off for a redo? What to do? I think I want to keep it sorta stock. Sights have to be changed. Any ideas? I know you guys are really shy about sharing your opinions. BTW this is my only Colt...

    This one is hard to let go of because the blueing is just incredible and the custom shop fitting work puts it on a whole other level from other Colts I’ve had. I can tell this pistol has been fired from light wear on the barrel hood and breech face, but it can’t have been more than one box of...

    A while back I started a thread about getting a series 70 Colt to do a bit of gunsmith’ing on. Mainly a piece to allow me to learn without the hesitation I feel doing it on my higher end guns. I have done quite a bit of drop in work on my guns, especially my Sig’s and a few Beretta’s. But 1911’s...

    I just fired it again today. It is really good on target. It's a 2011 Colt Government XSE: It's not that I need a ambi-safety Colt since I am right handed and don't use the left-hand safety. o_O I like comparing a long-recoil vs. the standard-recoil rod. I can't feel any difference.
