Product Description

Colt 1911 Government Classic USA .45 ACP Semi-Auto Pistol, 5″ Barrel, 8-RD, Series 70, Wood Grips – Colt O1911C-USA

The basic gun is the essential 1911, a full size Colt Government, series 70 .45ACP with a National Match barrel. The slide flats are polished to royal blue and a unique retro style roll mark is applied. Colt factory issued a special serial number sequence beginning USA2020-001.

The gun is then sent to Pete Single , Precision Metalsmithing https://petesingle.com

Pete has been an unheralded force behind many to the top 1911 shooters and gunsmiths in the country for more than 25 years.  Pete’s additional features include the precision 25 lines per inch checkering on the contours of the frontstrap of the pistol. His checkering is felt immediately and is remarkable when viewed up close. The frontstrap is blended into what Colt calls a “High Enhanced” trigger guard cut.  Colt’s Custom shop charges $345 for those frontstrap features alone.  Pete then does a complete mag well bevel.

Another fancy custom feature is the top of the slide bevel at 30 lines per inch to a arrowhead shape towards the front sight. The ejection port is relieved and champered. Each barrel then features a precision recessed muzzle crown. A final touch is the slide stop bevel.

Taken all together this pistol contains more of Pete’s precision metalwork than any other factory available pistol. Normally this kind of detail is only available on custom guns starting at three times the price of our Colt. It is the work of a genuine master of his art. We are grateful for Pete’s contributions and Colt’s help to make this pistol possible. Consumers for a limited time can access exceptional custom metalsmithing at very reasonal  price and support USA Shooting in the process.

It is hard to improve the Colt 1911 Classic .45. The Classic is a full size carbon blue government model featuring the Series 70 firing system, national match barrel, staked on front sights, and spurred hammer. Chambered in .45 ACP  this firearm is a pure and simple 1911.

Our changes are subtle and highly custom.  The slide flats are polished to royal blue. The custom roll-mark is simple and to the pointThe front strap is precision checked to 25 lines per inch. The mag well is fully beveled. The barrel features a precision recessed muzzle crown.

The top of the slide is custom serrated 30 lines per inch in an arrowhead pattern. The slide stop top edge is beveled. Custom enhancements like there are very expensive in the aftermarket.    Master Metalsmith, Pete Single designed and executed these custom features as his contribution to the project.                          https://petesingle.com

The USA 1911 is finished with unique and classic Colt wood grips. The edition will be limited due to current production restrictions. The final number has not been determined.

The USA Classic 1911 features a unique serial number prefix “USA”.  The goal of our partnership with Colt and Pete is to raise money for the USA Shooting Team. The delay of the Olympic games this year makes the need to finance our USA team shooters even more important. Our team must raise funds privately to compete against countries whose shooters are completely publicly sponsored.  It is our belief that when a USA team member mounts the Olympic podium it shines a very favorable light on our entire shooting sports community. A portion of the proceeds of this edition will be donated to USA Shooting.

Purchasing a firearm online is simple and very similar to any online shopping experience. The difference is that we cannot send the firearm to you. Instead, we have to send the Firearm to a Local Gun Shop or FFL Dealer near you, and you pick your product up there.

 

We only need two things from YOU to complete and process a firearm purchase online:

  1. Method of Payment.
  2. Federal Firearms License (FFL): We will ship to a local FFL dealer of your choice. Any legitimate gun store and/or gun dealer has an FFL license. You can also check with your local pawn shops.

How to arrange a shipment and transfer:

  1. Find a licensed FFL Dealer in your area:
    • Ask the dealer about their FFL transfer fee (usually around $25.00, but varies by dealer). Provide your dealer with our fax number (435-938-9816) or Email (123FFL@gmail.com) where they can send a copy of their FFL (if not already on file). To Help Speed Up Your Order : Please ask your FFL Dealer to write your Order Number, Name, and Firearm on any corresponding paperwork you or your FFL may send us.
  2. AK, HI and other outlying areas have a higher shipping rate.

 

We accept payment via Cash, Money Order, Cashier’s Check, Personal Check (with 7 day hold), and Credit Cards- including Visa, Mastercard, and Discover.  We do not charge any additional fees for payment by credit or debit cards!

 

All orders will attempt to be shipped within 3 Business Days of the time the order is completely processed.

The number of days UPS / USPS counts to deliver a package is based upon “Business Days.” A business day does NOT include Saturday, Sunday, National Holidays, and the day the package was picked up on. For example, if you package was picked up on Tuesday for 2nd Day Air delivery, the package will arrive on Thursday, since Tuesday does not count as a delivery day.

 

IMPORTANT: When you pick up the firearm at your FFL, please inspect the product thoroughly and confirm that this is the product you ordered, and that there are no defects. If there are any problems with your purchase, simply Do Not Accept The Transfer. We will gladly have the firearm shipped back to us at our expense and provide you with your choice of a replacement or full refund. 

 

Any Firearm that you have accepted and transferred from your dealer is NON-RETURNABLE and NON-REFUNDABLE.

 

CUSTOMERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR VERIFYING THAT THE FIREARM YOU ORDER IS LEGAL IN YOUR STATE. In the case that a firearm has been shipped to to a state where the firearm is not legal, the customer will be charged a 15% restocking fee.

 

Once you accept transfer, the gun is considered used and must be returned directly to the manufacturer for warranty repair or replacement.

In the case that a customer is declined in their ATF Form 4473, the customer is responsible for a 15% restocking fee.

 

All other merchandise returns:  Original shipping and handling fees are not refundable. Offers are subject to adjustment due to returns, cancellations, and exchanges.
Order Cancellation: If for any reason you decide that you are unable to complete an order, we reserve the right to charge a 15% restocking fee to cancel the order and re-list the item.

 

For Pick Up In-Store Orders: Please note that we operate BY APPOINTMENT ONLY for ALL walk-in traffic.  Please give us a call or shoot us an email to arrange an appointment.  Orders placed online can be picked up immediately (during normal business hours). All Pick Up In-Store orders must be picked up within 5 business days after order is placed UNLESS SPECIFIC ARRANGEMENTS ARE MADE AT THE TIME OF ORDER! Pick Up In-Store orders that have not been picked up within this period of time will be cancelled without further notice! (PLEASE NOTE: This policy only applies to orders that have not been paid for with a credit card).
