Some of these aren’t “new” in the sense that Colt’s never made them before, but rather represent the return of classic models from yesteryear that Market was asking for. Hit the jump to see the rest
Fun fact: this gun actually ran better than a high dollar custom 9mm 1911. JHP and FMJ. It was quite the good little pistol!
The perils of owning a gun shop: even though I should really know better, I kind of want one of these. The ParaUSA Expert 14.45 Stainless, buy it now for $599!
I have to admit, I’m a little biased on this review. I shot 10,000 rounds through this gun, and I spent a considerable amount of time with it in pieces on my desk to make sure it was ready to do the things I needed. For a full look at the gun, check out the Colt Report Finale.

One of the cooler guns from Shot Show this is the new Springfield Armory Range Officer 1911 9mm. It’s been flying under the radar a bit this week, overshadowed by the new four inch XDs. We’re big fans of the RO line from Springfield, it’s a lot of gun from a reputable maker for not a lot of money. We also like 9mm 1911s a lot, because they’re amazing to shoot. We think the Springfield Armory Range Officer 1911 9mm is going to be a big hit.
