Default Hey, Cane! How'd I do?

I just bought my 5th Colt 1911; a Gold Cup Trophy. It was selling for $999 but I talked him down to $899. It helped that I gave him about $100 in factory Federal Premium .410 Handgun 000 Buck. I sold my stupid mistake-purchase Taurus Judge a few weeks ago and don't plan on buying a 410 in the future. So, bye-bye useless .410 ammo.

I changed the grips (it came with those Colt wrap-around pachmayr-like grips) and put in a Chip McCormick Powermag. And she is GTG.


I took one pic with the flash to show the wood grain in the walnut grips:

Box, manual, two magazines, gun lock, colt bushing wrench, allen wrench, and the two recoil springs it comes with.

It has everything I need and nothing I don't. The two best features are no FLGR and no holster shredders.
