So it was four days after Christmas when I swore a week prior to avoid the holiday traffic when I received a call from the dealer that my Colt NRM 1991A1 is ready for pick-up. Amazing how calls like this one can magically clear up ones work schedule faster than greased lightning, with courage to face traffic to boot. So here she is, in her bone-stock, unadulterated form. No planned changes except for an arched mainspring housing and a short GI trigger. This Colt sports the new rollmark which I prefer over the old billboard rollmark of old. It is a Series 80 so it has that firing pin safety mechanism that some purists scoff at. Personally, I like the firing pin safety in place as its another layer of safety especially for a pistol carried cocked and locked. The controls are positive and easy to manipulate, i.e. nothing will move without the deliberate intention of the shooter. Accuracy and reliability are superior with the right ammo and right shooting technique. My Wolff 7 rounders worked superbly with this Colt. Finish is almost two-tonedthe top of the slide as well as the bottom of the dustcover, the trigger guard, and the front strap are finished in black sandblasted matte. The sides have brushed polished finish which provides a very nice contrast with the matted surfaces. Im very satisfied with this pistol except that I have to get that arched MSH so as not to alter my muscle memory for the Beretta, which still remains king for me.
