I happened across this special edition Colt and have decided to give Colt another try. For all the criticism I've received over the years for my absolute rejection of the Series 80 FPS, I do find it interesting that whenever Colt runs a special edition that they tend to run it in Series 70.

Let us know how it shoots. Do you plan on carrying this or is it just a collector's piece?

I typically have daily carry guns that I carry concealed and then I have formal carry guns (going to meetings, important events, etc.) that I open carry. My daily carry guns are usually Glocks. My formal carry guns are usually 1911s or high grade revolvers depending on the circumstance. If this gun proves itself more reliable than my 80s series Commander has, it will surely find a place in my formal carry rotation. If it fails to, it will look pretty sitting on my Colt shelf.

That really does look great. Just enough features IMO, never having a problem with original safety and a preference for traditional rear only slide serrations and stainless.

So is it relegated to the "shelf" or does she shoot?
Best regards,

This one is intended to be a shooter as well as a carry gun, although I haven't yet had the opportunity to shoot it.

My Daily carry is still my colt commander. Its a older series 70 satin Nickel that Ive customized to fit my needs. I shoot it at least twice a month in competition. It eats anything i feed it, and the bullets go where I point it. IMHO its the best all around weapon for carry, weight and 9 rnd limitations are outweighed by the ability to be confident in the reliability and putting the shots where they count.

Definitely a great choice! I'm all over Colt (on social media) trying to encourage them to release a Series 70 Delta Commander.
