If you've read my posts before you'll know that I beleive the finest weapon ever made is the Colt 1911. Well.... after years and years of saying that "If I ever find a Colt 1911 commemorative for under $1K, I'm going to buy it", I finally did find one for that price and it's mine. :smile2: I also bought a Colt Series 80 Govt model. Now I need lots more .45 ammo and my recent bonus $ is gone. Oh well what the hell, it was $ that was suspose to be spent on things we wanted, so a couple ncie guns and some new rods, it was worth it! Here are a couple pics of what the gun looks like (this isnt my exact gun, but same model. )Th serial # has been edited.
