When I picked up my Colt from my FFL I gave it a good once over and found no defects. The gun came in a plastic bag with a light coating of lube. Later that night I tore it down for cleaning and inspection. It was clean and lubed. No worries. The workmanship and finish on this thing are excellent. Took it out today and ran 50 rounds of Federal HP through it with different magazines with no malfunctions. It's accurate and the sights are easy to see. Everything worked as it should and I have no complaints. Cleaned it again and everything seems to be meshing together fine. I'm very pleased with it and after a few hundred more rounds expect that it will get even better.

This was my first order with buds! I could not be more happy... I was worried about buying a handgun on-line , let alone living in California. It was a great experience, I have already ordered my 2nd gun through Buds and looking forward to getting my Springfield .45 cal... I just received my Colt 45 ..least week and going to the range next week...Thanks Buds !!

PS:the preferred FFL worked out great for me...

Awesome gun. Looks beautiful, the rosewood checkered grips really tie it all together and the rosewood is actually much darker than it appears to be in the pictures. I was very skeptical about buying from Bud's (This was my first transaction with Buds) but I am very satisfied. Gun arrived factory new and in the original blue Colt case. Took it to the range and fired 50 rounds down range and punched a hole right through the middle at 15, 25 and 45 feet. Incredibly solid gun. My only complaints about the gun is that first it does not have front strap checkering but I am already warming up to the smooth surface on the front of the grip. The second complaint about the gun is the Colt magazines that come with the gun. They are not the best so I would suggest swapping them out for some better mags like the Wilson Combat mags. Fits perfectly in my hand. Honestly one sick piece and I love getting compliments on this amazing piece of American History!

I picked up the new Colt XSE yesterday. After field stripping and cleaning I took it out for a test fire. Using the two Colt mags that came with it and Kimber and Wilson mags I shot one hundred rounds with mixed round nose and hollow point ammo. The gun functioned perfectly.
Today I took it out and put another 150 rounds through it, a mix of FMJ, hollow points hand loads and even some of that stuff Air Marshals use that was laying around gathering dust. Again the Colt functioned perfectly. The trigger on the Colt is crisp and breaks clean I'd have to say as well as a Grand Raptor that I have that has had a trigger job. On top of all that the gun is beautiful, in a deep blue black finish. The grips are not like the photo or any other rosewood grips I have seen. They are very dark and look as though they were a Cherry Walnut, if their were some such thing. They are probably the first stock grips that I will not change for something nicer.
I have several Kimbers and a couple of Colts and I put this one right at the top and highly recommend it if you get the chance to own one.
This is the 29th gun I have bought from Bud's without any problems.
