I recently traded into my first colt 1911. I traded my HK USP 45 full size and a little cash for a tricked out FEG Hi Power and a uncommon Colt 1911. The Colt is a 1991A1 officers slide mounted on a full size frame. I wasn't sure how much I would like this combo, but I love it! It feeds everything well, from hollow points to wad cutters and is very accurate. The original owner had a Wilson Combat beaver tail grip safety added as well as a sweet trigger job. I couldn't be more pleased. I have owned 6 or so 1911's from Armscor to Springfield, but this is my first real Colt. Pics to come later, just had to share my joy!

Congrats on the new to you colt. I recently picked up a colt rail gun. Glad I went with the original.

Congrats... COLT makes an excellent 1911!
Like you, have owned an SA Mil-Spec and several ATIs... decided to sell-out of them and stay with COLT for my 1911s.
Liked my O1991 'full-size' so much got a Commander! Both are great shoots and super accurate. Enjoy.
