And bac...do you have to keep showing that beautiful Valor! It's killing me every time you do!

Never mind...keep showing it as much as you want! I'll deal with it!

Its less an availability problem, and more an available funds problem.

For a while after its release you couldn't get one regardless how much available funds you had.

Here's an interesting piece. Colt 1911A1 "RECON." Four inch "Officer's" slide mated to a standard size frame. Somewhat unusual, we gather. This one we got in the late 1990's, and tweaked just a bit. It is an excellent shooter.

We trudge on.

This is a Colt factory made or you put it together?
Thank you.

The RECON is a factory pistol. One of 500 made in that particular batch, we understand. It is our only Colt 1911A1, although we have other "clone" 1911A1 pistols.

We trudge on.
