Hi,

Anyone familiar with Colts new Talo Goverment edition? I like the specs: match barrel, no FCS, FO front sight, wide notch Novak in rear, beavertail, extended thumb safety and slim grips. It's a 80 series, but I have read that the trigger is excellent. What do you guys think? This would be my winter CC gun. Price is around 1K. Thanks

So it's like the XSE but with fiberoptics front sight and no stupid front serration.

I can dig it.

I don't know if I'd dig the slim grips. That looks like the same one on my Talo .38 Super Lightweight Commander. I'm not sold on slim grips yet, though I suppose that for a person of extremely small hands it'd come in handy.

I just bought one and its fantastic. The fit and finish is excellent and the trigger pull is above average. Highly recommend!

I have one. I was going to give it to my dad for a Christmas gift, but I ended up getting him a different colt. I got him the colt talo with the gold bead front sight. I think I paid right at 1000 dollars for it. The fit on it is really good and the trigger is really nice. I have a colt reproduction 70 series, and the talo is way better (IMO). I changed out the red fiber optic for a green one. I haven't shot it yet, but I'm sure it's shoots just as good as any colt.

There is no way I can believe a Talo 1991 is better than a Series
70 reproduction. Not in this lifetime.

What's so special about the current Series 70 other than no firing pin block?

I like the better sights, grip safety, msh, and hammer. Plus the trigger is better. This is how I see it. I have both, so it's first hand for me.

Was that the Wiley Clap Commander? I looked at that one last year, but didnt care for the GI thumb safety and the FCS. Also, the front sight is brass if this is the gun.

Sorry, I wrote that last night when I was about to go to bed. I paid 1059 otd for the colt that you're asking about.

I forgot which model I bought him, but it's a full size without fcs.

I'll post some pics when I get home.

Alright, here's a few pics. The one in the middle is the one you're asking about. The one with the finger groves in it, is the one I got my dad. It's a 70 series with the brass bead. It has the gi thumb safety, so you might not like that. The one I got him is model number 01911WC.

I was wrong, I changed my fiber optic from green to red. I think the red looked better. The third colt in the pic is a reproduction 70's series. I don't know if you can tell or not, but I don't see any major roll marks.

Both of the colt talo's have a better trigger than the colt 70's series. I think you should go for it!!

Sorry for the small pics. I don't know how to resize them?

Thanks, great looking Colts. I think the FO front sight is more visible than the brass one.

Agree 100%. My personal preference.

Mine arrived earlier this week and I got a chance to put 50 rounds thru it. Good trigger and very accurate and no BTF :whistling:

The finishes are the same style as the Series 80. Matt on round surfaces and brushed on flat surfaces in either stainless steel or blued.

Sights are also the same.

Roll marks? Don't make a difference to me.

Well, they do generally have better resale value, fnfalman.

I personally much prefer Series 70 Colts. That said, I do own some Series 80 models that I like, such as the Special Combat.
