Colt 1991 Commander

by A-Poc

Winchester may have made the gun that won the west, but I believe Colt was in there picking up the slack.  In 1991, Colt started a new production run of pistols and called it the 1991.  It is basically the same thing as the 1911.  They changed the finish and used a checkered rubber grip, but for all intents and purposes, it is the same as a 1911 as far as I know.

The Colt 1911 has been used in almost every U.S. conflict in the 20th and 21st century and is most commonly chambered in .45 caliber.

I used to have a Colt 1911 and really liked it.  It is definitely a trusty and true workhorse.  If you are a fan of 1911 style pistol, why not go with the guys who invented it?  They certainly knew what they were doing.
