Got my 1911 but not a Kimber

Ok I decided to keep my Glock 19 and traded my Glock 34 lol instead.

They had my ultra Kimber Raptor in Blue. But next to it was the most beautiful Colt Talon Wiley Clapp Commander and I was star struck! After spending much time between the two, I went with the Colt.

I love it so much!!! It is a masterpiece and I feel I right the right choice.

This was custom built for limited production. It has everything in place perfectly. Front strap checkering that blends into the grips! Main Spring Housing has great checkering though I cant tell if its plastic or metal yet. Combat safety that is rounded off. Press check guide rod. National Match Barrel.

More to come and range report soon

I love you all here, and don't want to join a colt forum or other, so if ok Ill stick around knowing I'm still gonna get my Kimber!

Your welcome! You found one of the Colts I was talking about.

I want one just like that except the one I want is Commander size and does not have the serrations on the front of the slide.
Mine will be Colt Wiley Clapp CCO model.

Wiley Clapp CCO Model

OK, mine will look like this. It is no serrations with Commander Slide/Officers Frame.

I like yours too, knowing me I may end up with both!
