    Today Colt is a mere shadow of its former self, IMO.

    I have bought many 1911's and several of them needed work in the disconnector and trigger/sear spring area right out of the box. Had a new Ruger that the disconnector would actually lock the slide back! Sounds like that gun needs some attention of a return label on the box. Shame that it's coming to this with most production guns. It is a nice looking gun though....

    That guy has been let go by Colt. Colt just had massive layoffs and basically shut their custom shop down.

    Sorry to hear. I wouldn't buy anything new from Colt these days. They're circling the drain and ready to be flushed.

    Now ya tell me!

    It was nostalgia, when I get it back I don't doubt I'll wind up sending it to a gunsmith to get it in good working order.

    Not knocking Colt, as I have 2 Pythons and 3 of their AR's (1 9mm and 2 5.56). Never any issues, but just wouldn't buy anything new from them these days. Just sayin'
