    Just Corralled Another Rare Pony - Colt DA Government Model!

    I've closed the deal on another Colt Government Model Double Action.

    These pistols are as rare as hen's teeth, and I got a great deal on it! Should be taking delivery by the weekend!

    I really wonder why Colt did not continue with that model. I wonder the same about the BHP DA. It seems like the market was really taking off for that kind of gun right as they discontinued them.

    Congrats Jim!

    I assume you're talking about the O1991DA? I really wish I would have picked one up back in 2011 when they were introduced. They were a neat pistol, sadly 30 years too late for the market.

    Well, just in case I don't get the pistol this week, or if I don't get a chance to take & post pics, here's a link from 2016 that's got a few pics of identical Colts:

    Yes, I did post that!

    I just find it a very interesting pistol, and AFAIK, they only made ~300 of them. So, figured it has some good collector potential, particularly being unfired, NIB! I'm probably too old to benefit much from the future collectible value, though!

    Yep! That's the one.

    I agree, if they'd come out with it in the 80's, it might have caught on. 2011 was just too late!

    Undoubtedly, I know they would have sold much better than the Double Eagle.

    Tracking info shows, "Out for Delivery", so assuming someone's around to take delivery at my FFL today, I should have it this evening!

    Pics or it didnít happen! Lord I might just be jealous. Anytime someone gets a Colt, I tend to feel that way. Itís called Colt1911givemesomeitis.
