And so it goes we received another Colt 1911 that eschews the common clone for the full Colt Custom experience. Upon initial inspection the pistol looks like many others, but it’s fundamentality different and requires a closer look for the uninitiated to make the lights go on.
Despite being no longer offered at Colt’s Custom Shop The Gun Room Inc.’s long time relationship with Colt reaps benefits in the form of a one of a kind Colt Custom 1911 worthy of the title.
With features that include; a reverse crown barrel with thick stainless EGW bushing and recoil plug, custom round butt mainspring housing and frame. For sights the Colt wears Novak with gold front and plain black rear, Ed Brown beavertail grip safety, strong side safety lock, 25 LPI checkering with enhanced cut, laser engraved “Rampant Colt” and Colt Custom Shop logo, flat top and serrated slide with border arrow head pattern, grey G10 grips with Colt logo, dehorned, silver 3 hole trigger and last but certainly not least enhanced reliability package.

As mentioned above this is a one of a kind Colt Custom Shop and much of the work is no longer available in the Colt Custom Shop. This gun was a multi-year wait to manufacture and receive from Colt and it won’t be offered again in this configuration. Expect to pay more than the big box store clone 1911 that you are thinking about.
The Gun Room Inc. is known for the hard to get exceptional firearms that we feature on our pages here and in the shop.
