    New to me 1991 with pictures

    I dont know what it is but this gun just makes me smile. Simple, aint gonna cry if scratched, not a hicup to be had, not too tight or loose....sweetness.

    Found this local used and under $500 bucks!!! She feeds so smooth you can almost ease the slide forward and she still feeds

    This gun was meant to be an entry model but this is one simple yet performing gun.:rock:



    Took her out today and put some rounds through her. Not a single hicup. Feed everything:rock: Extracted Everything:rock:
    Looks like she will make a nice EDC beater from what she did today

    Except for the grips, the exact pistol I carried in Vietnam.

    So is this a mistake, or is there really a model 1991? Is this a variant of th 1911, or did they call it 1991 for royalty or copyright reasons?

    I was wondering the same thing. I've never heard of a model 1991. But then again, I don't know my Colts all that well.

    It's about as close a version of a true 1911 that you'll find. It's named 1991 for the year it came out. I picked up a used matte stainless for my nephew, the hammer is a bit of center and the trigger is plastic. I advised him to change them out, he has yet to do it but it go bang every time the trigger is pulled.

    Nice piece.

    My buddy who really got me into shooting has one of these. Replacing that plastic trigger brought a real smile to his face, though he wished he'd done it many years prior.

    Congratulations, you have found one of Colt's best kept secrets.

    The M1991A1s are some of my favorites and some of the best built Colt's around. The serial number on these pistols picked up were the USGI Colt's stopped back in 1945, if you call Colt, they will give you the year of manufacturer, 1-800-962-2658. Now that you have one, you may start to notice the many variations of the M1991A1 that Colt produced. If you have an early example, it's parkerized, if it was made after 1994 it's matte blue.

    The M1991A1s were made from 1991 to approximately 2002.
