    Those were custom shop guns from Colt and are not in abundance, you should buy it. Some of the various 1911 forums have info on them. The Colt website used to have info on them listed, but I don't see it there any more. Regardless, they are good pieces to own.

    Do you know when those Colts were made? Or about how many? Thanks.

    They were made for more than a few years, you used to be able to order them from Colt, but they ceased a few years ago IIRC. Now I think Gunsite does their own in house, but they are still very much sought after, most people that own them pick them up while attending courses there.

    I suppose my initial post should have read more along the lines of the following:

    "The original / older Colt Gunsite models were custom shop guns...."

    Regardless, the Gunsite Colts are still few and far between and not easy to find, the Gunsite Smith&Wesson 1911 is a standard catalog item.

    Looking at Gunsite's website, they list the Gunsite Colt , but the link just goes to the Colt website and there is no Gunsite model listed.

    Those are pretty highly sought after... they are Series 70 firing systems with some of the newer handling features like a true blended beavertail grip safety, Novak sights, lowered ejection port, etc. That will make a great carry/duty gun!

    Get some pictures up so we can see it
