    Glad you find it useful! Hopefully I will be doing some more shooting with it now that ammo supplies are loosening up. Need to do updated photos and a little write up on the Sig P938 9mm I just picked up...What a nice little backup carry to the lightweight!

    Great thread!

    I have a Colt Government-length XSE. It too has been superb so far. 100% reliability and no failures at all since I got it last October.

    Colt is making some of the best 1911s in their history these days.

    OK. Now you need to tell us all about that M45. Any provide many, many more pics.

    And another round-count report thread.

    Combat Elite sold. Got $1100 for it, not sure if it it was good, bad, or right on the mark.. we're both happy though. And I will still get to shoot it from time to time..

    Quite the restraint being showed. You weren't one of those kids who left his toys in the boxes only to reap the rewards 50yrs into the future where ya?

    I'm curious as to your shooting habits. I haven't read every post in this thread, so forgive me if this has already been answered. It looks like in most cases, you're shooting 20-30 rounds. Do you go to the range specifically for this? Are you bringing other guns to shoot? How often do you clean it?

    Cousin "broke" into my car and "stole" the Lightweight and fired 3 rounds of Gold Dots before my other cousin stopped her and made her change to my backup mag of fmj ammo.

    107 rounds today to break in a new 7 rnd carry mag I want to play with. I have a soft spot for lanyard loops and came by this reproduction for the New Colt WWI pistols. It was gritty feeding the first round or two and actually caused a light feed jams requiring a thumb nudge. After the first few runs I stripped the mag, lightly stoned the feed lips, follower sides, and cleaned. That solved the grittiness and the feed problem but then I had a few bolt over base failures on the 7th round. Ordering some more wolf +5% springs and we'll see.

    I hope you haven't been letting that Commander rust up! I was looking at a Commander just like yours recently and remembered this thread. I've read the whole thing again and see you've had other posts as recently as a week ago.

    I'm guessing you stopped keeping track? So take a guess!

    Not to go off topic too much but I have an opportunity to get the M45 for 1,100 brand new. A buddy of mine works for Colt and they can get it for that price. Should I jump on this? I already have my 1911 filled so not really sure if I should jump at this...

    No. You should tell him to sell it to me for $1200 instead and he can pocket the extra $100.
