    Thanks for having me! I got started with a decommissioned Colt M45A1, Colt M1911A1 and then a Kimber LAPD SWAT Custom II that I picked up from Larry Vickers personal collection. I have a few unique guns and started really getting into the collecting side over the last couple of years. I’m a...

    Thanks to @Jollyroger1 I received this M45A1 in today! As I usually do, pulled it apart; cleaned swapped back to original parts just cause, and wiped her down with my silicone rag with always gives it that wet sexy look. lol tried to bend the grip safety spring a little to take up some of that...

    Good afternoon. I have the opportunity to purchase a used Colt production m45a1. It is the ionbond version with one mag and no box. The over all condition is excellent. I know they listed new for 16-1700 but I’m trying to find some help on a used value. There isn’t a ton of sold recent history...

    SPF Gonna give this one last shot. It's as new, in the box, unfired Ion Bond version. It would sell without the grips shown in the photos, original grips and screws which are shown in the box photos. I was asked about the trigger and all I can say is a good Series 80 trigger, I was going to put...

    Looking for a rail gun for nightstand and IDPA duty. I have a VBOB, which I love, and which is of course head and shoulders above all the other 1911’s I’ve owned (Kimber, SA, Remington). Naturally, now that I’m looking for a railed 1911, the Specialist is at the top of the list. However, I...

    EDIT: you have all convinced me, they're staying. Consider them withdrawn! Well, I've been back and forth on this; but it's time to go. Unfortunately there are other priorities right now. I feel like they're priced fairly, but feel free to make an offer. Colt O1070CQB out of the Colt Custom...

    Sadly having to let this go due to an unexpected passing in the family to help cover some costs. I'd love for this to go to someone who appreciates what it is and how truly rare it is to be able to own a service pistol from post 1985. This is one of the decommissioned Marine Corps M45's that...

    Colt M45 rail gun for sale. This is the ionbond version not cerakote. I bought this new and haven't used it much, exactly 200 rounds through the gun. I had the rear sight replaced with a 10-8 u notch but still have the factory rear. The only cosmetic issues I can find are marks on the rear sight...

    I was able to find a set of Colt M45A1 stocks and screws (unfortunately the screw color doesn't match my finish on my M45A1). The new screws look a lot better then the blue screws I was using to hold the stocks on the knife before. Gun by Colt; knife by Mickey Yurco

    I have a Colt M45A1 available. It has seen one range trip, round count is 120. This pistol ran flawlessly. I am parting ways with this to help offset the cost of a custom railed pistol I bought. Comes with everything pictured, case, two factory Wilson mags and paperwork. The ambidextrous safety...

    I have heard that Kramer is producing a OWB holster for the M45A1. I am looking for a kydex model, something similar to a Raven Concealment. I did realize that the M45 fits in a M7 Tanker without a light.
