Just picked her up today! Sweet balance!
I'm seriously wanting one of those. What's the weight difference between that and an all steel?
All steel is 38-39oz and the LW Gov't is 31oz according to my books.
I just got one on Saturday, your picture taking skills are far better than mine! I really like it too, it's weights quite a bit less than the steel framed ones.
The Novak's sights are great too.
My trigger and grip safety seem to have a fair amount of play/loose tolerances, do yours as well?
Grip safety is tight as a drum, trigger has some wiggle in it but it does break with only a hint of creep.
Hmm I might call Colt tomorrow and see what they say, maybe mine needs to be adjusted.
Congrats! Been looking forward to those coming out. My shop has had only 1 and I missed it...
Nice Colt !
Might have to visit my local expert gunsmith then, a bit of a shame for a gun at that price level in my opinion.
I agree, should be better for the price.
Shot it yet?
Not yet, going to tomorrow at our agency's Quals.
Nice. Glad to see that stopped using that awful duckbill grip safety.
Shoots about a baseball sized group at 25 Offhand and the only malfs were a failure to lock back on the very first magazine fired and a Win Ranger jumping the feed lips last round out of a Factory 8 rounder. I only carry and shoot Colt 7 rounders in it now.
Ball, HPs and LSWCs over 4.7 Bullseye no feed, extraction, or ejection problems at all. Primer strikes are a bit off to the 12 o clock position but no ignition problems.
Recoil Spring does feel light tho. Got a GI recoil guide and plug and a 18.5 lbs Recoil spring coming.
