    I am a big fan of the SCGs as people on here I am certain have seen. Not too long ago I was within a blued 38 super of having one of each model in each caliber. Than I decided that was a bit extreme/found other guns I wanted more and slowly reduced down to a single special combat carry. I...

    This is a catch and release. I’ve not fired the pistol, but did break it down upon arrival to clean, lube, and function check before putting it into the safe. This one is unique as 1 of 100 from the Colt Custom Shop that has the high-cut and checkered front strap with adjustable rear Novak...

    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...

    I had previously owned a 2 tone .38 super SCG but sold it to buy a .45ACP SCG blue model. This particular model has set in its box unfired for the past 3 years since it was built in 2013. It was pretty dry on the inside, but was well built and nicely fitted. The barrel is definitely smith...
  11. Competition 1911's
    I (gasp) left the Baer at home last night and took the Colt to the monthly steel match! I've been meaning to shoot this one more, and I finally got my butt in gear and ordered a holster for it (KT Mech). 150 rounds tonight, for a total of 6,550. On a mad dash to 10k! The match went pretty well...

    I just love the look of this model and as you know it carries a fairly steep pricetag and Im wondering if any of you have one ot have had an opportunity to handle one and what your thoughts are about it. Is it run through the custom shop? How is the fitment? How would it compare to, lets say, a...

    I've had this gun for a little over a year and have put 5k rounds through it in that time. I really need to shoot it more, but I have a few guns I'm spreading my time/ammo across... 5k rounds isn't a whole lot, but like my Baer, I intend to do a detail strip/clean/writeup at every 5k interval...

    I just got a used Colt SCG and figured I'd post up a pic while it's still looking sharp. Excuse my poor photography skills. It was built this year and doesn't look to have been shot very much. I only got to put about 200 through it today but I'm going to pound it hard tomorrow. I love this gun...

    My SCG just came in and I don't need the factory grips. They are in great shape but I just got some from Wilsonwessonbrown that I'm in love with so these can go. Let me know if anyone wants them, thanks!

    I stumbled upon this Colt model over at ar15.com and thought I would bring it up over here. These are floating around, but not advertised by Colt: Colt Special Combat Rail Commander O4012RGZ. I admit that I have an affection for Colts, but am realistic enough to question anything Colt with a...
