Colt 1911 model O

I was checking out prices on Colt's Saturday. A friend looked them up in his distributor catalog and some models were listed as model O.

There was no indication on what model O stood for. Is it the new rolllmark 1991A1's? Is it a designator for current production pistols?

I didn't find anything listed on Colt's web site. They had the spec. sheet on the Colt Gunsite Pistol and it had a Heinie front sight and Novack rear sight ... :roll:

Thanks ... Mike

I think the model "O" designation just means it is a 1911 pattern frame, regardless of caliber, barrel length or other features.

Is it not the "2 Magazines" feature?

In 1999 Colt came out with the Model O pistols. 1911s series have an XS designation. 5" GMs had 8 rnd mags, 4.25" Officers 7rd, 4.25" Commander 8rd and 4.25" Lightweights 8rd.

The same year shows 1991 Model O pistols. GM matte, SS, Commander in Stainless and matte and a National Match.

Both were introduced to replace or enhance the standard 1911. Front cocking serrations, McCormick trigger, 3 dot dovetail sights, (Novak's, I think). The XS also have ambi safeties, tighter tolerances, aluminum frame and SS slide.

Ta ta.
