New Colt on the way

After researching 1911s online and of course reading through Bacs Buyers Guide, I settled on Colt Combat Elite.Not my first 1911 or Colt and definitely not the last. My plan is to use it as range gun mostly and it might pull "BBQ Gun" duty every now and then.

Congrats on the new toy!
I, too, just purchased a Colt (Government model from Bud's Gun Shop), and it arrived last week. Have not yet been able to get to the range due to the snow.

As a fellow Combat Elite owner - congrats!

I swapped out the factory grips for some Esmerelda coco bolo grips in the same half-checkered design.

I was looking for a nice 1911 last year to shoot. I was looking for the 70 series Colt, but at my LGS they has a Combat Elite in the case. Well after one lookie, I bought it. Really nice. I also added a series 70 to my collection as well. Colt has done so much better in the last few years. Super nice fit! Ron

And here it is 😃
Unfortunately, I couldn't use the indoor range due to border patrol doing their qualifiers.
