First of all I want to say that my overall experience with buds gun shop was exceptional. Very good pricing, free shipping, and an easy process altogether. As for the firearm I have two complaints. My front sight is extremely loose. I didn't notice it until I had fired 100 rounds so I cannot confirm if it arrived loose or if it became loose after shooting, either way it shouldn't be loose. The other complaint is that the gun has very sharp edges. I understand this firearm is more of a base model so that you can pick and choose what custom shop features you want to have done to it, but I have cut my hands several times just trying to remove the pistol from the holster. This isn't a huge deal but it really makes me appreciate a properly beveled finish. Had to give it 4 out of 5 stars for these two reasons. Now with that aside I have fired over 500 rounds already and not a single malfunction, stoppage, or misfire. Gun has been 100% reliable which is much more important to me then sharp edges or a loose front sight (which is still printing some very tight groups). I love the beautiful finish and the slide to frame fit. Although I was a little upset about the front sight it will not deter me from buying another colt. I love it. My brother bought the exact same pistol and I checked his front sight and it is tight. I may have just got unlucky. I highly recommend this pistol to someone who wants a very reliable base model out of the box with intentions of having some custom work done to it to fit their needs. The gun is also wonderful in it's original platform as well, but I may have to have something done about the sharp edges. Hope this helps anyone looking for a full size 1911.
