It took a couple of weeks fir it to arrive at my LGS. I understand it's the Holidays, (Merry Christmas) and I know that these guys are busy. That said, the gun is very nice, not a Royal Colt blue by any means, but nicely done. Unpacked it, degreased it, and put on a set of faux-ivory grips with both of my previous military organizations, one on each side of the grips. Looks really nice. I had always wanted the 1911 that I was issued in 1971. Exceot that it's not parkerized, and doesn't rattle, it's mighty close. The arched MSH and short trigger feel great. I will be the range safety officer at our shooting club tomorrow, and if I have the time I intend to give it it's first workout. The trigger is not quite as good as my Kimber Eclipse Ultra, but I can live with it. If not, that's what Cylinder and Slide is for. All in all, I'm quite pleased. I'm giving it a 4 only because it took a while to get it. Buds is great, if I'm looking for a new firearm, I will always go to Buds first.

I had read the previous reviews and had some concerns, but the example I received was flawless! Tight and smooth,Great Trigger! Deep rich beautiful polished blue and the roll marks were straight, legible and evenly well struck. This is a Beautiful Pistol! Highly recommended.

I am a late 60's early 70's Army veteran. I wanted a no-frills Mil-spec 1911 like the ones we used to carry. After checking everything else out there, this Colt was the obvious choice--and it exceeds all my expectations. Finish is great--nice even bluing. Roll marks are crisp and even. The quality of the build is excellent--great slide to frame fit, racks smooth as glass, absolutely no rattles, nice quality rich rosewood grips. After an initial clean and lube, took it to the range and put 100 rounds through it...no failures at all...accuracy much better than expected, it shoots better than I can. Trigger is crisp. Love the arched mainspring housing and short trigger--just works and points better for me. Certainly not my first or only 1911, but with the nostalgia factor added-in, could easily become my favorite. And, I don't intend to change a thing. Buds was great, as always. The gun arrived at my FFL in pristine condition. My advice is, if you're looking for a Mil-spec 1911 made the way it's supposed to be that will last for generations, go for this Series 70 Colt--you won't be disappointed!

I just received my new Colt 70 Series today . The fit & finish is very good . The roll mark were very legible on my Colt . I almost didn't buy this pistol because of the review here about the shallow roll marks . Mine looked great.

The only appearance gripes I have are , the hammer has a noticeable stain on the left side and the mags feel a little cheap and there was a small spot on both mags with no bluing .

If you want to get your gun fast don't pay with a check . I used the echeck option to pay and it took a week to clear . Once it cleared , I received my pistol in 6 days .

I gave it 4 stars because of the hammer stain , mags and long wait time .

I would buy again and maybe even another Colt 70 Series in the future .
