Default Talo Colt Ghost

Just picked up my Christmas present to myself.

Brand new Talo Colt XSE "GHOST" Lightweight Commander.
It's #275 of a limited edition of 400. Has the fiber optic front sight and half moon rear. Fit an finish are impeccable. Comes with two sets of grips and two 8 rd mags.

Put it in my carry holster and compared to my other 1911s, it felt so much lighter. Haven't had a chance to shoot it yet, but if it shoots as well as it looks and feels, This is definitely gonna be my new carry gun.

Got it from Bob and Amy at Ozark Guns. Amy is a sweetheart and easy to deal with. Took the transfer at Spears Shooters Supply in Sherman, Tx. Dave Spears is a stand up guy. I recommend either to do business with.

Beautiful!

Tell me, what is a Talo edition? I think I've seen some other handguns that were Talo models as well. Thanks.

Ah crap, another Colt I need to add to my 'must have' list!

Outstanding PD gun and the size/weight that's ideal for CCW.

Thanks for the heads-up on TALO.
