Glad it is working well for you! My 1911s are my favorite shooters.

oh boy..... just what I need... another platform to fall in love with!   very easy to shoot, recoil wasn't anything near what I thought it would be.  will be fun getting to know this girl better!   the Mag was a joy to load.  so far, very happy with my first Colt!
take em!

Nice looking 1911! Is it finished in FDE color, or is that just the lighting or white balance of the photo?

sorry Gents.. had family in from California.... had to make a quick trip to the lake/cabin for some boating and R&R.   I wasn't able to squeeze in a trip to the range before said trip, so that's still on my "to-do" list.  hopefully Thursday or Friday this week.  

Sgt... will keep that in mind!   this is my first true 1911 as well.  someone here strongly suggested the upgrade to this model(anything above base) and I'm already glad I did it.    Can't wait to report back!
take em!

First Colt, also first 1911?

Very nice.
If it fits your hands, and it hits what you shoot at, don't ever sell it, or you will regret it forever.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

Very nice!!! Definitely a trip to the range is in order. If the trigger seems to be heavy try a lighter hammer spring and you will really love it.
Congrats!! Have fun..........
