    Colt 1911 XSE

    Just brought this bad boy home today from the Dallas Market Hall show. Good find at a good price ($949). Am a lefty, so wanted an ambi safety (which this has). How'd I do?

    Figured I got a good deal - the same gun was $50-100 at the same show on other dealers tables. This show has about 2000 tables, so you can shop around.

    Anyone have experience with an aluminum alloy frame? Do I need to be cautious of anything? This is much lighter than my steel framed 1911.

    I just recently got a stainless Combat Commander XSE (Combat Commander Model on the slide) and I love mine! Definitely a keeper. My son's son will have it one day.

    The Colt xse's are beasts, Im going to the range with 100 rounds of blazer to have some fun with mine tomorrow. I expect no failures with the blazer since it eats everything else including frangible.
