Purchase went smoothly from Bud's. Processing and shipment was delayed slightly from what I had read on other reviews, but I believe that was due to the COVID crisis, which was communicated on the website. Firearm showed up in perfect shape at my FFL. Unboxed and cleaned. Took out and ran 6 magazines of Winchester 230 grain FMJ without any issues. Ran all magazines flawlessly. Sights appear to be on out of the box. I am not the greatest shot, this gun makes up for a lot of my inconsistency. My first 1911, and I could not be happier. Big thanks to Buds, and also Hickock45 for putting out some great content.

My first 1911, I wanted a good one, and Colt has been making them forever, so I knew it was a solid choice. It’s very accurate, and weight is very balanced. My only complaint, which was easy to fix, was the grips, the grip texture on them is a bit sharp, and they tore in to my hand after about 25 shots of 230 grain federal champion brass. I switched them out for some grooves Wilson Combat grips and that issue was resolved. Regardless, this handgun is a very solid choice, new or experienced 1911 owner.

Just added this Colt to my 1911 lineup and I'm very impressed with the quality and features at this price point. Good trigger and adjustable sights. Hits to point of aim at 15 to 25 yd., 2" groups with ball ammo. This is a great platform just the way it is or a starting point for customizing for whatever purpose. I'll probably checker the front strap first and after 500+ rounds or so take a look at the trigger. I like slim line grips so that'll be a priority. This may well turn out to be my everyday carry when I don't have to carry concealed.

If your thinking about buying a 1911 you can%u2019t go wrong with a colt. They%u2019re tried and true. Purchase was a breeze and shipping was super quick. Took the pistol straight out of the box and put 50 rounds through it without a single malfunction. Easy to clean and take apart. Note: this pistol only ships with one magazine. If you check colts website they%u2019ll tell you the same thing. Also the blue fiber optic rod they send with it is hard to see unless you have a ton of light. The red one works for me. If you%u2019re hesitant about buying a colt please don%u2019t. Best brand out there.

Beautiful gun, love the features especially the national match barrel and the fiber optic sights. This gun gives you the most bang for your buck in the 1911 market. Shoots phenomenal, feels great in the hand and looks very nice ( love the polished flats and the blue grips ). Also the series 70 firing system makes this stand out in the Colt 1911 lineup. You won't be disappointed.

Impressed with the overall fit and finish. I received an actual blued one instead of the mat finish, and it looks beautiful. First 200 rounds from 4 different manufacturers ran flawlessly. Very nice shooter, sights are awesome.

I dropped a star because it has to go back in to Colt. There is something wrong with the plunger tube. When I remove the slide stop, the whole detent assembly comes right out the front of the tube. I%u2019m sure Colt will take care of it, but awfully inconvenient having to send in a new gun. Still happy with it overall though.

Typical Buds good service. Out of the box the pistol had a very consistent 4.5 lb trigger pull. Completely stripped the pistol down & proceeded to clean, polish, & lube the action. Managed to drop it down to a consistent 4 lb pull. Ran 100 rounds of 230gr Winchester with box through it. Didn't notice any difference in recoil compared to my heavily modified Tisas 1911 (also a 70 series). Gun shoots better than I did that day. Not much else to say. It's a Colt.

    John, no Sir it is essentially the same overall dimensions. The dual recoil spring system just ups the spring change interval from about 5000 rounds to 15,000 rounds over the standard 1911 setup.

    You can add the firearm and anything else you're purchasing to your cart as you normally would and the layaway option should be listed as a payment method during the checkout process. Instead of paying the full price of the gun it will prompt you to submit a 20% deposit via a personal check, bank check, money order or credit card and you then pay the rest off during the layaway period. https://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/layaway.php If you have questions during the checkout process or have any issues/problems with your order it would probably be best to contact Buds' sales and service during their business hours instead of customer Q&A since they can actually access your orders and information.

    Corey , Yes this firearm uses the traditional 1911 single stack magazine. The 45 ACP 1911 style handguns with double stack magazines being developed are classified as 2011 models as a tip off they are double stack.

    Stephany, no. This is a "Single Stack" Magazine model with 8rd Magazines. This is a "Double Stack" Magazine model with higher capacity : https://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/product_info.php/products_id/35220/rock+island+51567+tac+ultra+fshc+single+45+acp+5+13%2b1+black+g10+grip+black+par ----

    No, it is not the same finish. The CCU models have a black PVD finish, the competition .45 you referenced has an actual blued finish (polished flats). They are NOT the same.

    James, Late in 2017 early 2018 Colt changed to only 70 series on the 45 ACP competition models. Colt had Series 80 passive safety firing pin block up to then in the 45 ACP. Eliminated Series 80 firing pin block due to it effecting trigger pull weight. People that want Series 70 Colts can get them in Colt Goverment 45 ACP, 9mm, and 380. Your article must be from last year (2017)

    Matte black finish. I have a friend that has one and it is showing holster wear after 7 months of USPSA competition.It's a solid accurate pistol though. Well worth the money.
