    Finally Got A Colt

    I traded my Springfield GI .45 for this Colt last weekend..
    A friend of mine (with chubby hands) has had this for a long time.
    he loves the 1911 platform but this one was to small for him to shoot comfortably.
    he liked my government model, I liked his...........so we traded
    It's a 1987 Colt MK IV Officers ACP.45 and was ordered with Colts "Ultimate Bright Stainless Steel" finish. I think I got the better of the deal for sure..

    Nice little Colt.
    Congrats...good deal for you.
    Dump the Pachy signature grips though.
    Buy a nice set of checkered exotic wood grips.
    Or at least take a razor blade and slice that goofy looking rubber front-strap off.
    Just my personal opinion on that.

    Tis purdy , needs pearl , or is that purle ?? grips lol . A great carry gun that if you fit it out properly is also bbq worthy .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .

    Great gun! IMHO a set of Stag grips would definately make it BBQ worthy!

    Very nice, Kruz.

    FWIW, the "Ultimate" finish was a standard cataloged item for the Model O and I frames, you didn't have to order them.

    What was it that Gen Patton said about pistols like that again?

    Great trade

    George actually liked "shiny" guns, his Colt Single Action Army Revolver Serial Number: 332088, was silver plated.

    Rightly or wrongly I'm partial to the genuine article when owning and using 1911's. I enjoy the original Colt guns. You done good!
