Long before there was a Talo, there was Lew Horton. Horton’s daily operations and their special editions have upwards of two decades’ seniority on their friendly competitor neighbors, only 12 miles from each other. Here is the latest Colt Horton’s Special, and it is as traditional as they come. This is a Series 80 descendant of the 1911A1 with firing pin safety, but also with full coverage military style finish, brown Bakelite type GI Grips, and a lanyard ring type Mainspring Housing. Manufacturer is Colt Industries of Hartford, CT. Exclusive distributor is Lew Horton Distributing of Westboro, MA. Colt factory designation is Model O1991Z, M1991A1 Series 80. Construction is entirely steel, with the exception of the grips, and the anodized trigger and mainspring housing. The Colt M1991A1, writes the factory, is a direct 4th generation descendant of the "often imitated but never duplicated" Colt M1911 classic automatic pistol, and this variant is the closest approximation to the World War II version. Type is Browning Design 1911 Government type Single Action semi-automatic pistol. Chambering is .45 ACP Caliber. Barrel is 5 inch stainless, 6 groove left hand 1:16 rifling. Frame and slide finish are matte blue, approximating the WWII parkerized versions. Sight system is matte blue stake on front and dovetailed notch style rear that is drift adjustable only for windage. Safety system is classic threefold, main safety for right handed shooters; grip safety; and Series 80 type firing pin safety. Each 1991 comes with a total of two factory magazines, Colt factory marked and made for Colt by primary supplier Check-Mate. Each magazine holds 7 rounds, so 7 + 1 fully loaded capacity, and 8 shot magazines are readily available from us and throughout the country. Weight empty is 35 ounces with center of gravity at the magazine release. Trigger is .250 serrated face alloy, and the photo specimen pulled in the 6 pound vicinity with minimal felt creep. Each pistol comes in a current production Colt blue box with instruction manual, cable lock, factory registration paper, total of two magazines, chamber protector, and protective wrapper. Each also contains a total of two grips, one set the pliable black rubber factory Rampant Colt grips and traditional WWII to Vietnam issue type brown plastic. Each one ships with the black rubber, and the owner can easily change them to the brown like we did on the photo specimen.

Don't let your buddies use your account. Registered user must be the buyer, with his or her own money. Buying firearms and related items for other people can result in felony charges. Don't try, either, to circumvent any law; for example, a California civilian may not buy a high capacity magazine and have it shipped to his brother-in-law in Nevada. That is a felony.
