I finally purchased my first 1911. Im the new proud papa of a Colt Rail Gun. I found the all black cerakoted model at a local shop. I got it for about $1190 before tax. Thats about average from what Ive been finding. I cant wait for the three day holding period to be over with to take her to the range. Now I need to find Canes break-in post. Hopefully this ****ty weather ends in three days. It literally has not stopped raining for two days here in Central Florida. Quote from Bart Scott, "CANT WAIT!"
