Trick question?
A pic of the other side would be nice :(
I'd say yes i guess so maybe it looks like a Colt-
I know its a 1911 Commander style gun--------------

Yes, that is a Talo edition, designed by Wiley Clapp. At least, that's the description given by Davidson's & I'll have one if they ever get any into inventory. I always thought that Talo & Wiley Clapp were two different designers.

Really, is this a trick question, or do you just know very little about guns?

That is a 1911, just a particular model of 1911. The grips say "Colt", if the slide also says "Colt", and this isn't some kind of a toy plastic gun (sorry, but the lighting kind of sucks), then yes, it's a Colt 1911.

I'm very confused. Is this an honest question? I'm not trying to be mean, it's just that most people who get their hands on a high end gun like that already know exactly what they're doing. If you honestly don't know, I invite you to stick around and do some reading.

Yeah I'm new to the 1911s I've only had 1 pistol before this one I had a glock 22 40cal and that's it.

Very well. Welcome to the greener side of the fence then! :D
Do some reading, check out Colt's website, and ask questions. You've got a damn fine gun there.

Being a 'special edition' it may not appear on their website, but call them with the S/N & they'll tell you all you want to know about it.

It's a really nice pistol & your wife is a keeper, for sure!! :)

My wife bought me a colt lightweight commander ,4.25" barrel,45acp,blue/black anodize model o. My question is. Is this a colt 1911?

No, it's actually a Kolt...a cheap Korea knockoff of a Colt 1911. Since it's your birthday I'll be generous and give you $100 for it...:)

Most any 230gr FMJ will do fine for practice. I mostly shoot the Winchester White Box from Wallyworld-

Swann, (no relation to Bella by any chance?) You've got homework. Get thee to a range, and give us a report. 2500 words minimum, pictures, references, and a works cited page. Thank you. This assignment is due Monday morning at 0700. Extra credit is given for early completion. Have fun. :)

I'd also like to invite you to go read the stickies in the 1911 sub forum. Lots of good info there. Any questions, many of us know a good deal about the 1911, but Canebrake is our resident 1911 expert. I'm sure he'd like to see this gun too, he'll probably stop in pretty soon. I think he's got either the government or officers version of the same model.

I think he has that exact model...even has a pet name for it that I can't recall right now...Black something or other.

OP, beautiful gun by the way...my offer still stands...:p Now get her dirty...

i think he calls it, "Black Licorice" the one Swann has looks very similar to the one Cane has. i am pretty sure Cane's Commander is also a Talo Wiley Clapp model.
