Quentin, good luck with your new gun! Let us know how she shoots.

And, of course, we need pics!

Thanks, JW!

Pics? We got pics!








With an old friend ... my 1976 Colt's MKIV Series '70 Government Model!




And another friend, my Colt/Walther M4 .22LR






And an ArmaLite buddy (BTW, a lot of old junk on it that's long been updated)

After hours of reading reviews and watching videos I was almost certain I was going Colt/Walther. But I wasn't sure which model: Government Model, Gold Cup or Government Model Rail Gun. Fortunately I was able to handle the Gold Cup and Rail Gun side by side at Sportsman's Warehouse. No one else had the Rail Gun, but almost everyone had the Gold Cup. No one in town had the basic Government Model but I know it very well since my real Colt, bought in 1976, is one. I went with the Rail Gun over the Gold Cup due to the rail, the low-profile "Novak" 3-dot sights plus it was $20 cheaper. (If you want fully adjustable sights the Gold Cup is worth the extra bucks but I love the low profile combat sights.)

Anyway, with military discount (thank you SW!), it was $369.99 plus about $20 tax out the door. I hoped to take it out to the desert this weekend but it's pouring rain right now. Oh well time to break it down and figure it out.

Thanks for all the input!

Here's a good, long video on the Rail Gun. The guy does a thorough job, covering everything including installing a light and suppressor, then firing video with and without the suppressor.

And here BigDaddyHoffman fires all three models of the Colt.

Very good choice! I nearly went with the rail gun, but I'm a sucker for the classic look of the Government Model.

Here's a picture of the Marines' M45A1 Close Quarter Battle Pistol. Colt also offers a civilian version of their Rail Gun in the same colors.




And here's the Dark Earth Walther/Colt Rail Gun 22LR, a knockoff of the M45A1 CQBP

Mine I added wood grips instead of rubber, they made it feel like a toy. Lol

I don't mind the rubber grips but want to swap to an arched mainspring housing like my real Colt. I can see having one arched and one flat isn't for me. Found a deal on eBay so next is finding out if a real Colt MSH fits the Walther.
