The OFFICIAL Colt Thread!
« on: April 30, 2011, 09:46:38 AM »
Now that we have no "Groups" anymore, I thought I'd start these threads... Previously, there was a "group" for each manufacturer... One could talk about that brand and/or post pics.

Anyway, if ya got a "Colt" and are proud of it, this is the place to do a yee haw or post up a pic or whatever!

I like that.  :th_thicon_idea:
Oh come on.....if you paid thousands of dollars for the very best, top grade 1911 and some clown comes along and beats you with a $400 plastic pistol, wouldn't you hate Glocks too?-

One of two Colts in my collection: a basic meat-and-potatoes Mark IV/Series 70 Government Model that belonged to my uncle who now lives in California

Yeah it sure looks a bit out of balance, don't it?  If I make it a regular shooter, I'll look for some Hogue grips or something.

Apparently, I am running a shelter for neglected Colts.  Behold, the notorious Colt All American Model 2000:




For those who don't know, the 2000 was based on an original design by C. Reed Knight Jr (of Knight Armament Corp.) and the one and only Eugene Stoner. I wasn't privy to the gun world back when it was introduced in 1991, but it was supposedly hyped as a sort of "Glock killer" that would get Colt's mojo back and with it the LE market. Instead, it was widely panned and plagued with complaints about its reliability and accuracy until it was shelved in 1993 or 1994. The company also finally succumbed to bankruptcy during the time period as well.

Well I can only speak to the one example that I now own, but in about 5 minutes and 100 rounds fired, long story short it just plain works.
