    For sale is an excellent Colt Wiley Clapp Government in .45 ACP, of which I am the second (and very brief) owner. The original owner purchased this new in AUG 2018 and put 200 rounds of ball and 24 rounds of 200gr. XTP HP's through it. I put 32 rounds of ball through it last weekend.

    You can see the full list of specs at Colt. (Click the link). Some of the features are:
    S70 Colt Govt
    Undercut trigger guard
    25 LPI FS checkering
    Wiley Clapp grips w/ finger checkering
    Flat checkered MSH
    Black Novak rear sight
    Brass bead front sight

    Mods to the gun are a fitted C&S slim extended strong-side thumb safety, and a Wilson 18.5# recoil spring. The take-off parts will come with the gun.

    This is a very accurate 1911 with nice bluing. The original owner reported 100% proper function on the low round count, which I also experienced during my one time shooting it. He carried it concealed twice carried it in a holster for its three range trips. No idiot mark and a plastic bushing wrench was used for maintenance. It comes with the factory plastic box and accompanying paperwork, two (2) 7-rd Colt mags and an additional, unbranded 7-rd mag (3 mags total).

    DISCLOSURES: The right grip panel appears lighter in color than the left. There's is some ever-so-slight wear from the holster at the very front edges of the slide, the top left of the slide above the "OL" in COLT, and a rub mark below the thumb safety that's covered when the safety is depressed (see pics).

    $900 shipped to your FFL. No trades please, as I sprung for another Baer this weekend and need to help pay for it.
