So I'm very excited about a new pistol that I just purchased, and since my wife could care less, I thought I would talk about it here. Maybe some of you will care more than she does.
I just purchased a Colt 1911 Commando. Although I have never own an Officer's ACP pistol before, this one excites me. The commando has Colt's Commander-sized, lightweight aluminum frame mated to a stainless steel Officer's slide. This combination brings the pistol 27 ounces (Only two Ozie more than the new, raved-about Springfield XDs) and it still retains an 8+1 capacity! All this in a package that was designed and built in Colt's Custom Shop. It already comes with a flat-top slide, full dehorning as well as their reliability and tactical packages. Damn!
I'm anxious to take it to the range and run some rounds through it. Hopefully the pistol will feed Hornady Critical Defense or Speer GDSB flawlessly.
I have not been this excited about a new gun in a while. Well, at least since I purchased my Christiansen Arms AR anyway. But I do need to fund the project, so sadly I will be parting with my '69 Colt Commander .38 Super. That was a cool pistol too! Hopefully it will bring enough on Gunbroker, that way I don't have to stress.
Range report and pictures to come.
I'm big 1911 fan based on the ergonomics of the pistol.
