    Oh yeah, and I would never give up my 1911s. I could live with a Sig, I would never completely leave the light though.

    I bought it as used Bruce, but it is NIB, never even had the slide racked. A Colt collector brought in part of his collection to sell (he'll bring more as these are sold) and this happen to be one. Colt calls them Series 70 and roll-marks them as such but, they really aren't anything like the originals.

    What I am going to do is, replace the incorrect flat nylon MSH that they come with, to the steel arched type and will also install the correct "silver" trigger instead of the blued one currently in it. I will leave the solid bushing in it because I never cared for the Series 70 collet type anyway.

    OD this will take your mind off that SIG. Don't look directly at the light and stay away from the kool-aid

    Welcome to a small percentage of what it's like to not be Mr. 1911 in an industry that worships the ********* of Jeff Cooper and his ilk.
