I bought on of them a bit more than a week ago. Shot it for the first time yesterday. While it looks and feels like a 1911, the trigger definitely needs work as sometimes it is light and other times doesn't seem to want to drop the hammer. Sight are nice and square, except for being made of aluminum and shoot about 6" low at 50 feet, they are ok. need to replace or fix. Other than those complaints, the gun shot first time, every time. I had my doubts that would happen as the magazine held 12 rounds in what looked to be a clumsy staggered formation, which looked at first like jam-o-matic. However, no problems feeding or extracting. Oh, one more complaint. It might be that Federal bulk HP ammo is something this pistol doesn't like (all of my other guns love it), but it was one of the first full sized .22's I have ever owned that produced lousy groups using it. I hope a bit more shooting, a sight fix and general breaking in (although I shot about 250 rounds thru it yesterday) will make it a good practice gun to save $ on ammo for my Kimber which will make groups touching holes at the same distance all day long. Bottom line: It was a disappointment out of the box. My MK2 Ruger, which I have owned for over 25 years and looks like hell due to a couple bouts with moisture (rust), will kick it's *** on the dueling tree. Will report back if I can get it fixed or not. Needless to say, I am not happy with today's out of the box Colts, regardless of who makes them. The last one I bought before this was a series 80 SS Gold Cup which, from a rest, wouldn't group good enough to put all rounds on 9" paper plate at 25 yards using a rest. I once had a series 70 that would do 2" groups at 50 yds using wad cutters. Such a disappointment in the modern guns they make. Hope you all have better luck.
