That shor is purty! If I own a gun, it will be shot. Welcome to the forum GzzV.

I believe I would sell her to someone that collects and buy I couple to shoot. I would end up shooting that one and messing the purdy out of it. She is a beauty.

Hey, I remember when those came out. Drooled over that one in the local shop when I was too young to even know what an 1911 was besides a Colt.
Always thought it was a purty rendition. Not overly dolled up...just enough to stand out.

I suppose some collector might may a premium for it but I would go out and shoot it just because I could too. I don't have safe queens in my stash either. :)

Both Colt and Winchester have made far too many commemoratives for them to ever have much collector value. They generally keep pace with shooter versions of the same gun.

I agree, I think TALO has something to do with the commemoratives. The grips on this Colt are Talo grips. I replaced the original with these.
