    Thank you for the kind comments.

    This example was my first attempt at reviewing a pistol, and it lacks a lot of the things we use for our reviews in the M1911 Pistols Organization E-zine. It is gratifying to see that this article still generates some interest.

    Great article Steve, bravo. My series 80 mark IV looks exactly like that. But with the firing pin block in it. I have the madalions on my grips, in gold and the wood is a lighter brown. I to prefer the madalions on the grips. Again great bit of jounalism, Take care, Johnny

    Thank you for the kind words, sir.

    As a testament to just how good these pistols are, I did a little shooting today with my Colt's MkIV/Series 70 stainless current issue pistol.



    50 rounds of WWB 230 gr. FMJ. Fired at a distance of 30 feet, from a standing two-handed hold.......basically a modified Weaver stance.

    My most sincere thanks to both of you gentlemen. I find myself shooting a little better lately. Concentration on sights and trigger, as suggested by all the really good "shootists" here in the forum.

    Creighton is SO right! It was a beautiful day, and well worth the ammo expenditure. I love it when a plan comes together!
