    Talking Colt New Agent Reviews & Holster

    I just bought a Colt New Agent and I am looking for anyone that may have concerns for this being a CCW or that has suggestions for holsters. Does it need to be treaked any? It is also my 1st 1911.

    Here's one review when the New Agent was first released. Colt's New Agent

    Did you get standard sights or trench? I owned a Kimber RCP II with the trench and although fast to acquire, was useless beyond close distances. An seemingly identical sight picture would produce quite a variance in actual shot placement.

    The New Agent only has trench sights. It's the Defender that has "normal" sights. I've carried mine for several years now. I've gotten rid of most other EDC .45s in favor of the Colt. I have a Don Hume IWB holster that I can use, but the Remora absolutely hides it. I've shot probably 1000 rounds through it and it has only FTF when my granddaughter limp wristed it.

    Good looking Colt.

    A friend of mine has one, I was very impressed with the accuracy that was attainable once you learned the sighting plane.

    It took me about 50 rounds to get the sighting down and another 100 or so to get proficient. I can now draw and double tap center mass with regularity. Mine is encased in a Steven Kelley C-Flex. Black on black.

    My New Agent came w/ Trinjicon tritium front aight and a rear sight. Shot it today for the first time. Reloads went thru it no problem but the Colt magazines that came w/ it were hard to extract. Snappy recoil!! I figure I need to put 200rds or so thru it before I start worrying about accuracy.

    Colt Defender with a good belt, Perry suspenders and a Don Hume H726 NO. 10-301/2". Works well for me. When dressing casually, I wear a
    conceal carry vest appropriate for weather.

    Good luck

    I carry a .45 because they don't make a .46
