    Careful @Munkypop ! 1911s tend to breed. You'll have a full stable before you know it.

    The new agents I have seen had the gutter sight. That is really a sweet weapon. The 1911 officer is my weapon of choice for CCW. (most of the time)
    The 1911 is an antiquated weapons system but then again, so am I.

    Message @OldVet if you have any troubles with the reassembly. He can recommend a nice drink to help get you through it. Hard to find 1911 guys that haven't had a spring go PING! at one time or another.

    I find two fingers of Coke in a tall glass and topped off to the rim with bourbon helps most things.

    3 inch Colt 1911s

    I've owned a similar Colt 1911 to yours for several years. Mine is a Colt Defender, and it makes an excellent carry gun because of its small dimensions and light weight (by typical 1911 standards). So I think you should get an appropriate holster and carry yours, although it is almost too pretty for that. I think you will find that these 3 inch Colt 1911s are very reliable and accurate.

    It's never too late to come into the light, as long as its caliber starts with a "4".

    From what I've read so far, the only difference between the standard New Agent and the TALO is the sights and the purty grip panels . And I do like the sights.The front sight is tritium surrounded by a huge white dot. Looking down the sights the white dot looks big as a marble.

    Oh, to add an update...it works great with FMJ, so I decided to try out Hornady's Critical Defense HP as they have the same general shape. It cost $50, but happy to report it chugged through 40 rounds of it without so much as a sniffle. Seemed to really like them in fact. It shoots them a tiny bit lower than the FMJ, but not enough to worry with.

    You know I don't think I mentioned it. They made 500 each of .45 and 9mm. This'n is the .45. 😁
