They Are Back!

Finally! The Colt side is back with Trijicon sights installed. Was it worth a month and a half without it? YES! Hurriedly threw some Break Free on the rails and went to the range. WOW! Big difference over the black iron sights and dead on it! I am not a Trijicon shill, but this was an upgrade that was worth it. I can see what I need to see!

The Smith and Wesson also arrived. Trigger is still loooooong, but seems to break better. Sights and laser are dead on!

Sight picture on the Colt:

Beats the hell out of black iron sights! The front sight is apparently showing off the tritium to the camera! The sights are marked with the nomenclature for Tritium, date of manufacture, and of course Trijicon.

It appears that these have made the laser take a back seat! That is comforting to a person approaching "pre-geezer" stage!


  1. I am glad you are pleased with your upgrades. It must be nice to have that babies back home!

  2. Glad you got your guns back! Have Fun!

  3. No, no, no. You're doing this all wrong.
    When your 1911 doesn't have what you want on it, you don't send it off to be fixed.
    What you're supposed to do is buy a 1911 that already has that feature. (And keep the old one, of course.)
    Please, no more rule breaking. (My wife might read your blog and where would I and my collection be then?)

  4. Nice- And I prefer NOT to have to rely on batteries...

  5. @ Brooke- Yes it is! I was in good company with the Detective Special, but I was really missing the .45!

    @ stopsign- I will!

    @ Ed- Perhaps I am dong this wrong! I like your method better! I DID order a Colt Defender last week, does that make it better?

    @ Old- Yeah, batteries and electronics can suck and fail real quick. Thanks for the complement!
