For the extra money for the Range Officer over the GI, well worth it. You will spend more getting the GI up to the RO level.

I think this will be my first 1911. Still trying to decide if I am going to get a 1911 or a ak 47 next
I vote for the 1911 :)

Do you know if aftermarket grips for the 1911 will fit the 22 as well?
Yes, I ordered standard mahogany 1911grips and they fit perfect.

Yes, you can get the skeleton gamer and trigger. Grips you can find any where.

Kodiak, you will love it! I see it is a NM serial number so you got a good one!

Basically all frames start as IMBEL forgings done in Brazil. The "N" models are assembled in Brazil. The NM models are CNC cut here in the states and the slide, frame, barrel, and bushing are fitted to match. Barrels are made to national match standards. If it has "custom" on the slide with the "NM" serial prefix the complete gun is national match standards.

Ace, the Gold Cup is a top notch Colt. Best you Colt unless you go to the Custom line! Awesome!

Nice, I wonder if those are the original grips too?
Yes, all original, it has been fired but not much. No wear marks on the grip safety or slide stop. It is pristine.

I agree with you on the classic look. I also like the tricked out tactical ones also.

Very nice EPAT. Colt could not give me an exact date because it has the SM serial number. They said 72 or 73.

The SM refers to the Government Ace Model. Some of the frames were used for the 70 series. Records were not kept very well. At least that is what Colt said.
