ISO The Very Best 1911's
The Colt 70 Series Combat Government is one of my favorite base guns. It has the neatest rollmarks, refined ejection port cut (like a Gold cup) and front and back serrations with a flat metal mainspring housing.
This gun was originally built by Novak’s as a basic carry gun with sights, full reliability tune, enhanced internals, carry bevel etc. This classic “Combat Gov’t” model was finished by Birdsong in Black T.
This Colt was later upgraded by Nighthawk with fully machined trigger components, thumb safety, new tritium front sight, and a full-fit, match-grade barrel/bushing. These parts are black nitrided and match the Black T perfectly.
It wears a set of VZ Colt medallion grips and has the Novak pouch and one mag. The gun is reliable and shoots to point of impact 2" high at 25 yards.
This gun has a low round count and is beautiful in person and on the range with just the slightest wear.
I have all the work orders/documentation on this pistol. After upgrading at Nighthawk in 2017 the owner fell ill and it was little used. Pics and scans attached.
