Since it has been so quiet around the Colt section I thought I would chime in. Just bought one for $787.00 brand new and the fit and finish is awesome. Gun is tight but not too tight like a Baer. Trigger is great, and breaks clean at 4.5 lbs with a little slack but I factor that in for reliability. Blue black finish is beautiful....Colt does have a nice finish. Might put in for a Colt Gunsite model soon in stainless steel. Will have a range report this weekend.


PS love the new rollmarkings...looks retro and is very cool.

Ranger Report:

Finally shot the gun yesterday and the first 8 shots out of this Colt was unbelievable! At 10 yards I put 3 in the same hole and the rest of the 5 around the circle like a clover leaf shape. I am definitely impressed with my XSE gun. It was smooth and the trigger broke clean like glass. Just amazed. I guess it was not a lie when people said this gun comes out of the Colt Custom Shop. Since the gunsite model is not for sale anymore....might just have to get the lightweight commander in XSE Paid $787.00 with shipping for this gun. Well worth it!

Very nice!  I've been thinking about getting another Colt myself.  I was thinking about a NRM government or perhaps a lightweight commander.

Thanks GoldTop. I didnt drink no Colt Kool aid either. The gun's performance is the proof!

I have a SS XSE Gov and love mine as well.  I had to pick between the XSE and a blued Gold Cup.  I carry, so the XSE seemed like the better fit.  I love mine and like yours has ended up a great shooter!
