    Just took delivery of my new Colt Combat Elite Commander, and must say, I am impressed. The stock pictures, which are all I had seen, do not do this pistol justice. Colt did their black ion coating and then took the finish off of all the flat parts, leaving a stainless steel and black two tone finish. In my opinion, this is one of the nicest 2 tone finishes I have seen. Upon picking up the pistol, one can tell it is made to tight tolerances, no rattles at all. It is a Series 80, but the trigger is not all that bad. It comes with a NM barrel, a 2 spring, GI recoil system, black G10 grips and Novak night sights. Now if the weather down here will cooperate this weekend, I will go put some lead down range (Range report to follow). Colt 1.jpg

    Congrats on your new Colt!
    I’m glad that yours is all you expected. I’m let down by mine but at least I have one now lol.
    Mine has a nice fit & finish and it feels great in the hand. Just the sight screw missing & the Locking lug on the slide bothers me.
    Can’t wait to read the range report

    I remember you had replied when I had originally posted a question about the pistol. Thank you for the heads up. I inspected mine before i signed the transfer papers. Sorry that you are not 100% satisfied with yours.

    Glad I could be of help! The way my luck runs, Colt only had 1 defective CE Commander make it out & I’m the a$$hole that ended up with it. It’s just how it goes for me lol.
    Congrats & I hope it shoots as good as it looks!!

    Would you post a picture of the other side? The stock photo looked gaudy to me, but I never trust stock photos...
    Thanks!

    What is the model # of that Colt in the picture?
    Because I think I've just met my newest Colt 1911 pistol.

    Well, once you buy one, you need the trifecta. Colt has done the same treatment for the full sized Government model and Defender series.
