I have one just like that chambered in .38 Super and also one that's chambered in 9MM, as well as two in .45ACP. I've wanted to replace the sights on these beautiful pistols for quite some time, as they are the smallest sights that I own on any handguns. Can anyone direct me to a company which makes decent sights to fit the Colt dovetail that can also be seen by my aging eyes? I find it hard to pick up black on black sights such as those found on my 70 Series Gold Cup. I find that 3-dot sights of one form or another are easier to see. Anyone have good recommendations?

This is my first Colt 1911. It's going to be a shooter no doubt. Is there a break in period for this puppy? Hopefully no hang ups..

My Springfield was fine right out if the box with no issues.

You should be good to go!! I usually take a few different brands to see if any have a problem functioning. Over the years I've bought a few different types of HP and will run a mag or two through it. I'll use the HP last when the gun is the dirtiest. I figure if there's a problem, that's when it'll jam.

Took her to the range yesterday and ran 100 rds of Remington 230 grain FMJ. The gun ran well, but its going to take some real range time to get decent with it. Besides some erratic ejection the gun ran great.

1911 Forums

My first target with the gun at 7 yards or so. Not horrible but not great either considering how close I was.

Now time to clean. I've used ballistol on all my firearms in the past. I was doing some research and I know these guns like to run "wet". Do you guys use an all around CLP like ballistol or are you guys using some type of grease on the rails?

What's generally considered a "fair" price for one of these, a grand?

I am pretty sure I saw one locally (Illinois) for $999.00 so I guess that's not too out of line.

They're sure nice looking.

I'd say about $900 if the store were to wheel & deal.

First handgun I purchased. Shot about 200 times and
went back to LGS and asked old guy why it was still denting some cases and tight. He said I need to shoot a coupe thousand rounds before it will shoot good.
He was right. Still one of my favorite.

Congrats.

Keep it wet and wiped down.
Dont put up with fingerprints on it.

The one that I bought a week ago was listed at $950.
It was on consignment from one of the gun shop employees.
He likes me, and came down to $850.
