    Got my eye on another one I hope to add it to my collection next month. If anyone has this model I would appreciate a review. This is what is says on there site.

    GOVERNMENT® & COMMANDER® MODEL PISTOLS

    The Colt XSE Series features everything that top shooters demand in a pistol. The foundation for these pistols is a forged receiver, a forged steel slide, a forged stainless steel barrel and a forged steel slide stop. Front and rear slide serrations come standard along with Novak® sights. The Colt Upswept Beavertail Grip Safety with Palm Swell and enhanced cut under the trigger guard allow for a secure hold on the pistol. The Colt Tactical Ambidextrous Safety Lock allows for either right or left handed operation. The addition of a one piece, full length guide rod rounds out a pistol suited perfectly for the shooting enthusiast or the personal defense user alike.

    Features
    ■Novak® Low Mount Carry Sights with Dots
    ■Enhanced Hammer
    ■Extended Ambidextrous Safety Lock
    ■Colt Upswept Beavertail Grip Safety
    ■3-Hole Aluminum Trigger

    I have that model got it a couple months ago and I got to say it's quickly becoming my favorite 1911 I only have 4 but this one is special, I have run a least 500 rounds of all types of ammo through it without any issue. My next one will be a Commander hopefully I can locate a Wiley Clapp Commander.
