Sistema Colt 1911

This is very much a Govt A1 ''basic'' 1911. The addition of a Chip McCormick trigger is the only modification which can be easily reversed to bring it back to original specification. Overall finish is very fair and serial numbers all match. It dates to around 1951, made in Argentina.

The worst aspect is the sights! The rear sight is not very good as a simple ''V'' but the small front side blade is awful! To change that would unfortunately be relatively hard to reverse and so it has remained.

As most 1911's, a pleasure to shoot and a surprisingly nice trigger following a small adjustment to angles, prior to which it had a very slight ''snick'' feel part ways through the pull.
