Thanks to Talo Again! A 9mm Govt Model




Anyone got a chance to check out the Talo Government Model 9mm?

http://www.gunsamerica.com/986003542...NMENT_MODE.htm

This guy only wants $25 above retail.

I've said it before... sometimes it seems like Talo knows more about what Colt's customers want than Colt does.

I could not wait any longer for a 9mm Colt Government. So I bought an STI Spartan 9. I have no regrets. It is an amazing shooter. It however lacks the beautiful blued finish that a Colt would have had. Apples to oranges on this one...

Yes, they will.

Commanders and Gov't. Models both have full size grip frames.

YES PLEASE!!

I've got a standing order in with my LGS in case she sees those pop up without any announcement. I've subscribed to the TALO newsletter just in case as well.

Hard to guess how much they'd want for it, but it probably doesn't matter. I just gotta have one if they make it to market. Even better if it's Royal Blue. That'd be icing on the cake.

Nice and glad to see Colt making one in carbon steel too. If I had the money I'd order one.

For the record, Colt canceled the TALO 9mm Gold Cup when they didn't have the engineering time to make it to their own very high standards. We were all very disappointed. We wanted a Govt in 9mm. With all they are doing now, they built us a standard gun. The factory is very busy now. The demand is crazy. It is really an eye opener to visit the production floor to see the hand work. TALO is very fortunate to get what we get from Colt. In the future , more time will be spent on getting a proper message out to the shooters/collectors. We apologize for lack of good info. The TALO Inc Facebook page is easier to update and is more accurate. In the end, thanks for the kind words. Colt is the best.

Thanks for your comments!

Will you be offering a Government Model 9x19 in stainless steel or will this be in blued steel only?

Good eye! There are several on GunBroker for around a $1,000 or more too.

and it looks like a "pencil barrel" too. Very odd seems it would have been much easier to simply use the same barrel blank as the super and chamber and mark it for 9mm.

Talo 9mm Colt Gov't 1911

I ordered one of these 9mm Talo Colts. I must say that I am very happy with it. It really feeds better than most of my many .45acp 1911's. That was surprizing to me, I thought it would "clunck" while feeding the bullet: but no way. It feeds smooth as silk. It is quite nice, but a bit steep on the price($1050.00 is what I paid). Of course I will get that back in ammo savings. I plan to change the internals and either parkerize it or ceracoat it in the desert color like the new rail guns that are out now.. I have put the same grips on it as the military used to use on it, and it feels great. One thing is different to me is that I am much more accurate with my .45acp 1911s than with the 9mm 1911. But It will help to put some Cylinder & Slide or John Harrison's internals. Also the trigger MUST go, because it's ugly as sin and possibly plastic. After comparing it to my Wilson Combat Ultralight Carry 9mm, I must say the savings of over $2000.000 is awesome with the Colt. Maybe it is not so expensive after all.

I picked mine up from Cheaper Than Dirt for $975. Strange first few I saw on Gunbroker had stainless barrels, but mine came with a blued barrel.

Does anyone know if the barrel is stainless steel or blued carbon steel? I just bought one my 5th colt 8th 1911. Felt I needed a 9mm to round it out. Thanks.

I believe they are all blued barrels. The early releases had the barrel hood polished, the later ones (I bought one in Oct 2012) did not have the bluing polished off of the barrel hood.
