    Nice review Hunter. I really like how Colt paid attention to the extra details like the inspector mark and the pony under the grip panels.

    He had planned on going horseback riding that afternoon and invited me along (as he has done many times in the past). Terry also said "bring along that new Colt you are testing and let me have a go at it".
    Friend Terry has a bit of Tom Sawyer in him. But a day in the saddle sure beats a day white washing a picket fence.

    Nice write up and quite nice for someone to lend the gun for the report. Extraordinary!

    I see the serial number is past the 2,100 mark... mine is in the 1,800 range... does anyone have one higher (i.e.- newer production) than Jon's "1918" Colt M1911? Just wondering where Colt's at in this run...

    Nice review, Hunter! I really like these WW1 repros. They're just gorgeous and they work just fine.

    Jon was very generous in letting me borrow his new pistol and truthfully the pictures do not do it justice.
    I do enjoy spending the day shooting a new Colt and on the trail with a well trained horse.
