You can\'t go wrong with a Colt 1911. Need I say more.

Beautiful Gun, shoots well, and it is a Colt. What more can I ask?

Colt Commander XSE is a beautiful handgun and fires great. The all-steel frame absorbs recoil like a champion -- I fired 50 rounds of Win white box ammo without any noticeable pushback. This is the first short-barreled .45 caliber 1911 I ever fired. And I was not disappointed. The precision of the pistol was at par with all the 5" 1911s I have tried in the past. The trigger is silky smooth, just as one would expect of a Colt 1911.

The brushed SS finish on the lateral surfaces of the slide and the frame looks gorgeous, but anyone who has ever dealt with brushed SS will tell you that it's difficult to maintain. I find myself wiping off the handgun with a chamois, each time I touch it. I managed to put a scratch on the frame (the "idiot scratch") while inserting and turning the slide stop after field stripping. That will remain a painful reminder of one careless mistake. The reason was that the link pin was not lubricated well enough and was not lining up at the time of the insertion. Speaking of field stripping, the gun did not come with a stripping tool to suppress the recoil spring plug. It's not easy to do it with your thumb. I ended up using the plastic plug that came in the box. But it's simply not easy (loss of a partial star).

While the gun is machined very well to tight tolerances, the trigger (as with many other Colt 1911s) is loose and jiggly. I find this extremely annoying (the gun loses a partial start just for this as well). In the box, it was placed in a plastic bag, which is a head scratcher. The plastic left films of "cloudiness" on the brushed SS, which was downright hideous. I almost did not accept the gun until the FFL sprayed some cleaner and wiped it off with a rag. (Loss of partial star).

Overall, I'm very happy with the gun. If you're looking for a top quality Commander style 1911, Colt is one of the best choices there is.

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.

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!

Just received the Colt 0412XSE yesterday. It looks great and was a good price. By the way if anyone is interested it is the combat commander model . Very satisfied with service and will order from them again !!

As always, Bud's does an excellent job of replacing my money with their sales. Easy order, quick ship, never a hassle. The gun is about what I expected. Typical Colt, generally nice all the way around. Still shoots better out of the box than the Colt GCNM I bought at Christmas. All 3 of my recent Colt purchases have now had a trigger job and been accurized. All now function flawlessly in terms of accuracy. Even before the reworks, none experienced FTE's, FTF's, etc. When you buy a Colt, you get a lot more than a name. You get more than 150 years of experience, innovation, and quality. You won't have to wait another 100 years because Bud's is already there.
