View Full Version : Colt XSE Government 1911

I am looking for a used 1911 for a fun range gun (non competition). But I have very little experience with 1911 and wanted to get everyone opinions of the Colt XSE.

I have heard that in the beginning Colt was very well built and reliable and then they faded. But don't know where the XSE falls under. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

New production Colts are of good quality. If you can find one for a good price go for it. :cool:

There's one for sale in the classifieds right now. I think it's in SoCal. I had the XSE Commander, it was a nice gun. Currently down to one Colt, and it's not going anywhere this time. :)

That's what turned me to Colt XSE
