Colt O4691 1991 Series 7+1 45ACP 4.25"
[O4691]
$814.00
by Robert H Date Added: Sunday 22 November, 2009
I took delivery of this blued Commander on 11/18/09. It has matte rounds with polished flats, although not the deep, polished bluing I have seen on higher priced Colts. It is still nice for a 1991 series. The parts are nicely fitted and the bluing is even and deep. I am disppointed in the grips as the right panel has the cut for an ambi safety but there is no ambi safety and the cut is obvious as you pick it up and hold it. The trigger is about 5.5lbs. and a little gritty but this is the norm for a new gun and will work out. The 3-dot sights are definitely usable and I'm sure I'll keep them. The ejection port is lowered but not flared but it makes no difference in function on my gun. The cases are fine for reloading with little scarring.

I performed a thorough cleaning and lube before going to the range. At the range, using the supplied Colt mags, it ran GREAT ! No hiccups what so ever through 150 rounds. I think the new, enhanced throating Colt does to the barrels helps. There was no indication of "smileys" on the spent brass. Mine is very accurate at combat distance out to 25 yards. Recoil is very manageable with this 1911.

Aside from the grip panel I would give the gun a "5" for being the great value it is. For Colts goof on the grip panel, that knocks it down to a solid "4". If you are thinking of getting one, I say it is money well spent. It's a really good gun and is now part of my carry rotation !
