    Colt Commander range report


    My newest purchase...picked it up last Thursday from the consignment display at Green Mountain Guns. Stainless Colt XSE Combat Commander in 99% condition...previous owner had some enhancement work performed at the Colt custom shop, mostly trigger work I suspect.

    Took it to the range yesterday, and ran 150 rounds through it...100 rounds of Brand X hardball and 50 rounds of Winchester Ranger.
    It fed the hardball without a hitch...had a few feed failures with the Ranger, however. I could see a shiny spot at the very top of the feed ramp that seemed to be grabbing the nose of the hollow-point....I suspect a little bit of polishing with the dremel tool should help.

    The photo shows 50 rounds of hardball at 25 feet...I need to make a small adjustment to the rear sight, and looks like she's ready to go!
    I need to order a BladeTech IWB holster for it, and start some practice for my new summer-time carry piece

    Excellent sir.
    That appears to be a keeper!

    Thumbs up Great TEAM

    You know that I have a special appreciation for the Commander size 1911s.
    I think they have a near perfect balance (for me) & an EXCEPTIONAL naturally pointing carry handgun.
    Congrats on finding yourself a really nice & obviously accurate handgun.
    Looks like it has had a few dollars worth of extra effort put into it.
    Very nice. Shoot it good health.

    Great piece Rick and appears to be holding a very nice group.

    Nice finish too by looks of it

    That appears to be a XS model, note the 2 cut trigger and the upswept bevertail saftey, hard to see the rear sight, that will tell the diff between the two.

    I recently ordered a Colt XSE commander 04012XSE, should pick it up the beginning of this comming week (I can't wait).

    Either way you got a real nice sidearm there TA.

    By golly, you are correct, Sir...the Colt box says it is a model 04012XS, not the XSE (good eye! You know your Colts ). Oh, well...it's a stainless Commander model that shoots pretty good...I'm happy!

    I will be placing an order with Blade Tech sometime this week...I really like the holster I bought for my Steyr S40 from them.
