Colt O1091 1991 Series 7+1 45ACP 5"
by Kevin H Date Added: Sunday 04 December, 2011
When I took my new Colt 1991 (Gov't Model) out of the box for the first time, I have to admit that I wasn't as impressed with the finish as when I've seen some of the higher end Colts in the gun shop. There were some minor scratches on the non-steel parts and some metal shavings curling up from where the sights were installed (I believe all of this was as it came from the factory). I would have appreciated more attention to detail from Colts (even on this entry-level model) for over $900. In terms of parts fit, I don't think most of the gun could be much better (slide has the perfect amount of play, etc). I was also impressed with the stock sights. It seems unlikely that I'll ever need to upgrade them. On the downside, the trigger is pretty sloppy (lots of side-side/up-down play, but I'll shoot it for a while to decide if that's really an issue). Also, the magazines would not feed at all before I cleaned the gun and rubbed some grease on the underside of the magazine release catch. The magazine release seems to be "breaking in" with use, but I was suprised when I couldn't get the magazine inserted out of the box. I finally got this pistol out to the range today. I ran 200 rounds of cheap target ammo through it (until the business end was getting hot and caked in powder), but it continued to feed and fire reliably (and more accurately than I could shoot). Overall, I'm satisfied with the purchase and look forward to dialing it in with this new pistol on the range.
