    I sent a Gold Cup Trophy back to Colt on the 4/24 and they received it at 9:15 am on 4/27. I had the CS0003 trigger reduction setup in it and the CS0219 Trigger pull setup in it. Between the 2 kits and the bow polish job the trigger was right at 3.25 lbs. After 30K rounds the barrel lug cracked so I sent it back. Colt still hasn't said they wont cover it because the gun was modified but I'm still waiting when their letter that came with the postage label said 7 days or sooner... It's now at 11 days and when I emailed them they said it was still being evaluated.... I will say that I sent a letter with the gun stating that there is no way the trigger upgrades could have caused the barrel to fail as seen in this picture:

    Still waiting on a response from Brent Turcchi the service Manager from Colt...​
    I'll let ya know what happens!

    Got the Colt back yesterday. Accompanying the work order was a target with a grouping of about an inch at 15 yards. I took it to the range and 7 of my 1st 8 at 10 yards were inside the 1" bull and then the 8th was an inch out - I got too excited. Moved it to 15 yards and 7 of 8 grouped about 1.5".
    Love my Colt and the man that made it possible was Brent Turcchi (manager of the warranty smiths).

    I got one back from Colt the other day with a note from Brent! He told me to tell the customer to sell all his reloading stuff and stick with factory ammo :)!! 1100 323.JPG

    Dang!! I reload but since I'm a range jockey and I'm out for accuracy I'm mid range in the powder charge - not even close to max. Mine just had about 30K through it.
    I have never seen a split barrel like that unless there was a squib in the barrel and the trigger was pulled again.
    Brownells has the Ed Brown 1911 5" match grade barrel on sale for $139.99
