Default Colt Customer Service

I had to send my colt 1911 in for repairs and I'm going through withdraws lol. They have had it for 5 full business days and they have not contacted me about it. Should I wait a couple more days before I call? What's everyone's thoughts on Colts CS?

Patience is prudent. They will get back with you (or you just may get it returned without a call with a list of what was done).

If you do decide to call, just confirm that they got it. Some repairs take longer than others.

Your lucky.

Cs returns go through extensive work to make sure its right before you get it back. When they get done your getting a gun for all intents and purpose is a custom shop gun. Colt isnt fast on cs but you get back a better gun than one that didnt have an issue.

I liken having a problem with colt gun and them fixing it as winning a small lottery ticket...

Thanks for the info guys. I found out they don't call and tell you what's going to be done. They send out a letter. So I'm just going to wait it out.

Jon, I agree with you as long as it comes back fixed and not in worse shape. I understand they a professionals and that's what they do for a living. I have read a lot of reviews about there CS. And it was about 50/50 good and bad. I was prepare for the worst and hope for the best. But I'm sure she will come back fixed and in great shape.
