Anybody own one of these? Im looking to upgrade at tax return time. I currently own a r.i.a. And love it. Any feed back on the colt would be helpful. Thanks.

This came up on another thread a while back. Until Cane weighs in, this will get you started:

The whole thread is useful, but your question is addressed starting on post #21.

Welcome, you should visit the introductions thread when you have time: http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f2/

I absolutely love mine. Just like Wiley says, "everything you need, nothing you don't. " although I must say I would like some nice night sights. Mine is extremely accurate. I shoot it straighter than any of my other guns. You won't regret it buying it, if you can find one that is!

Here's a pic I took about 5 months ago. Laid her on a railroad tie and it turned out awesome. So yes this is mine.

My LGS has one on back order for me. I don't want to pay GunsAmerica or Gunbroker prices. $1295 + $35 ship + $30 FFL. :-(

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
