FIREARM HISTORY AND FEATURES:
The Colt M1911, also known as the “Government” or “Colt Government”, is a single-action, semi-automatic, magazine-fed, recoil-operated pistol chambered in .45 ACP. It served as the standard-issue sidearm for the United States Armed Forces from 1911 to 1986.
An iconic firearm, the 1911 has been copied and produced by many different manufacturers around the world and is still in production today in countless variants and configurations.
It is widely popular with civilian shooters for self-defense and competitive sports shooting, particularly USPSA, IDPA and IPSC.
In 1950 Colt’s Manufacturing Company introduced the “Colt Commander”, a slightly shorter barreled version (4.25 inch) of the M1911 manufactured with an aluminum alloy frame.
Later in 1970, the “Combat Commander” was released, which was an all-steel version of the Colt Commander, which from that point onward was known as the “Lightweight Commander” to differentiate the two pistols.
This gun is in excellent, used condition. It is mechanically sound and functional.
The overall two-tone finish is still excellent with no discernible marks or wear.
There are only some extremely light, small pit marks on the rear-top of the slide that have been cleaned and nicely refinished (with the entire slide), and are basically insignificant.
It is fitted with a polymer Recover Tactical Grip & Rail System which is still in excellent condition.
The action is still extremely tight.
Includes 2 x 8 round magazines.
