Finally Got My First 1911
Picked up a Colt Government Model today. I've been a 1911 fanatic for about my whole life. It's the first handgun I ever held...my Grandfather's WWII issue Colt to be specific. I'm still bitter that I didn't get it when he passed, but that's not the point. I was between the Colt Government, a Sig 1911 and S&W 1911. I decided to go with the Colt for 4 reasons:
1. Sentimental reasons
2. My buddy has one and I love shooting it
3. It was the cheapest of the 3
4. It seemed to be the tightest and had the best trigger pull of the 3 I held
I can't wait to go shoot it. Here are some pics
Nothing like opening a box to a brand new 1911
And for the obligatory family pic. Colt Government, FNH FNX 45, SA XD 45C, and my little S&W M&P 9C on the bottom
I'm very happy to be a 1911 owner. I'm already looking at adding a SA 1911 to the collection...can't have just one, right?
By the way, I do have a question, however. I was looking at some Tritium sights to possibly put on the 1911 if I wanted to "modernize" it a bit more...also would be better for carry if I choose to. How tough is it to replace the stake style front sight? Is it something I could do or is it something a gunsmith would have to do?
