If It's Good Enough for the Devil Dogs.....

It should be good enough for me! I picked this up today. I wonder whats in here?



















One of these!


















Yep! A brand spanking new Colt M45 1911 currently going to the USMC as well. Hey. I know the Berretta 92FS and all of that. It shoots fine but is well, butt ugly. This thing looks great! 




 













I have never owned a pistol that has gone through the Colt Custom Shop. We shall compare to its older smaller sister:























I can't wait! The Commander I bought new for 400 bucks in *cough* 80 something*cough* One thing I know for sure right now when you shake this one it DOES NOT sould like a baby rattle (not that there is anything wrong with that =) Full report tomorrow!
