Buds shipped the Colt quickly. I was amazed how easy it is to pick, call, and ship. No state tax to pay. I have not shot my Colt yet but it is all it should be. Only regret is no Colt medallion on the grips but this can be easily fixed.
I will definitely be ordering more guns from Buds.

This is my 6th Colt 1911 and my first Commander. The gun is accurate and the sights are great. I'm okay with the full length guide rod and front slide serrations--I knew this gun had them when I bought it. The FLGR does require use of a bushing wrench to field strip, and does nothing to improve function. There are things that are not so good. First, it throws about one in five cases straight back into my face. I have also had a couple of stovepipe FTFs--and no, I'm not limp wristing. Also, brass is striking the top of the slide behind the ejection port--the brass marks are very visible. And finally, one edge of the grip safety is very poorly fitted. Its edge is actually a bit jagged. I would not have expected such a poor fit and finish from Colt. The gun is going back to Colt for repair and I'm confident in Colt's excellent customer service--but it should have been better out of the box.

Initially I have few issues with this gun - there is a blemish was hidden under the thumb safety. I discovered when the thumb safety fall off.
I called BUD, but that the person did not understand what I am talking about and he claimed that I did not check the firearms by disassemble down to component at the FFL office.

I was mad and wrote a nasty email about their service. Guess what another person from BUD service was called me back this person understand my rare and unique situation.

He advise me to call COLT %uFFFD%uFFFD Colt was very nice to fit the issue without any questions. Now the firearm act like it should be.
Thank to BUD and COLT for their outstanding service. They understand how to keep the loyalty back from time to time, from generation to next generation. Good old American spirit, and hope it will be the same for many generations to come.

I bought this Commander because a friend bought the same model and it shot very accurately and had no issues. The gun I just bought is not as accurate. The rear lugs lockup plenty tight and the slide- frame fit is good but the bushing is a tad loose. Perhaps that is causing a loss of accuracy or maybe it is the barrel. In any event, this gun is not as good as the one my friend bought. I have 7 other 1911s and I doubt I would by buy another Colt which saddens me quite a bit because I was hoping they were back. There are other guns in this price range to consider that shoot tighter groups.

Buds was easy to deal with and I have no issues with Bud's.

I waited to get several hundred rounds through this pistol before reviewing. I am very pleased with it. It is accurate and reliable. I also own a Colt Special Combat Carry which is exquisite. I bought this XSE Cmdr as a carry piece and it will work excellent for that purpose as it's profile is only slightly larger than my G19 and it's appeal is so much higher. Colt has been overlooked by the gun mags because they did not buy advertising space for a number of years but their quality in my experience is equal to Kimber and superior to Springfield Armory. This one is another keeper. This is my 8th gun from Buds. They are slow but sure and saved me $300 over what the local gun shop wanted. I have more time than money so I will be back!
