The beauty of simplicity

This is a plain Jane no frills 1911. About the only upgrade done to these is the chrome lined barrel (the older government models don't have this upgrade). However, the lack of frills doesn't interfere with function. This is my 2nd government model, and I've been shooting the first for 20+ years with no issues. I chose to buy a 2nd, despite all the other 1911 options out there.

Pros- reliable, accurate, simple, nostalgic. With good ammo and magazines these run great. I trust my life to this pistol and would carry it into combat.

Cons- Same as with all steel frame 1911s its heavy and has a limited magazine capacity. Also the factory magazines are not great. Yeah they'll work, but about 200 rounds in they start double feeding. I switched to Wilson Combat 7, 8 and 10 round mags and haven't had an issue since. This is something I've learned to do with all my Colt 1911s, and I now have 8 of them.

Probably not the best option as a concealed carry weapon because of the size and weight. I carry a Colt defender EDC and its more suited for that purpose. But this is in my nightstand, and probably sees more range time than every other handgun I own. Definitely recommend, especially at this price. Gunprime doesn't charge tax either, which saves you close to $100 off the total price. You won't be disappointed.

Colt classic 01911C

I was hesitant to use GP bc of flaky older reviews. I decided to gamble. I watched their how to Video on buying a firearm online with them. No taxes and stupid fees!
Just shipping and the Colt 1911 was 150 dollars less than other sites. GP is 5 Star. Easy process, lightning fast shipping. The best communication and updates I have ever experienced. I will definitely shop here again. A+ company. Thanks!
