1980's Colt Gubmint

Well, I got a great deal on a nineteen eighty somethin Colt in SS. We went to the range on the way home from work last night. Ecccckkkk is all I can say. Thing will feed nothing (including ball) reliably. Accuracy was mediocre at best. This gun was never shot much so I know its not worn. The barrel still looks new. Looks like I have found my project gun.....

In a year it will be a tackdriver, and reliable to boot......I may end up broke but this gun WILL shoot......lol

Sad to say, but Colt's made from the late 70's and up to very recent times were a real gamble. Some were great, most were good, some were terrible, sounds like your's is terrible. Have you tried different magazines? Sometimes the stock magazine is worthless.
