Lets see your Colt Rail Guns Stock or Modded




Here is mine, a 01970RG Modded with a Ed Brown flat checkered MSH to replace the stock plastic one.

I need to get a better pic, but for now, this is mine. Only changes are grips and replaced plastic MSH with a S&A MSH w/magwell.

Fresh in from the range about 45 minutes ago, waiting to be cleaned.
45-1070RG stainless with PM wrap-around, 9mm- RI tactical with PM wrap-around, 1929 Colt 38 super (4 digit serial #) and a 1070XSE, stock furniture and 100yr rollmark. I try to take 3 or 4 1911's on each run.

Here's mine. just swapped the grips and have put a Wilson combat front strap serration panel since this pick. Johnny Handgun, did the msh and magwell fit well or did you need some sizing to make it right?

Here's mine:

Crappy cell phone pics, but the grips make this pistol really pop.

Picture an all SS one with a X300 Surefire. I have neither here. I feel so deprived.

Here's a standard issue

This one is right out of the box with a light attached. Have run about 1,500 rounds through it in the 15 months I have carried it. Takes any ammo. Shoots reasonably accurately.

What is the difference between the thumb safeties among the rail guns?

People like different things and change them. Mine is getting a single sided one, like the series 70.

Of course I know people might customize their stuff....my point is I think there are 2 different thumb safety that comes from the factory. I have a rail gun with the same thumb safety as Doubleclaw which I don't like. I like the one MTMTOM has. Just curious why out of the factory with 2 different parts.

Mine is a 2011 gun and it has the same safety as MTNTOM's gun but I have seen later ones with the other safety as well as earlier versions. Might just be what they have in stock.

I do know the one on mine is a Colt unit. Someone had said on this forum that they were Kimber units but they are not, they are Colt. They are also cast and not MIM. My info comes from Colt, in person with Brent when he took my Rail Gun to freak it out in the Custom Shop. I am having a single side fitted but will keep the ambi as well. It's really comfy and smooth and the profile is excellent for me.

Thanks Plexi. Mine has the downward movement when in fire position which I don't like. It is being taken care of by Colt at the moment (thanks to Brent). I Does yours have the downward movement when in fire position?

Anyway, here is my pic...
