Default Picked up a Used Colt 1911 Special Combat Government 45 ACP

This will be my Service Pistol for the next several matches! It was advertised as Used, but the date on the Colt Custom Shop target is only 3/21/2018!

Nice but the grips are lacking the Colt logo, so is it really from the custom shop? I buy the Colt Competition pistols for $900, then have Cylinder and Slide checker the front strap 25 lpi ($250), swap out the plastic mainspring housing with a checkered 25 lpi one ($60), when buy new Colt grips from VZ with a super scoop ($70) and replace to blue front sight with red ($0.00) and I end up with a poor mans Colt Combat unit. Expect for the blue slide and grips, yours looks like the 9mm one at my local shop for $1450, what did your run?

Yes, it's a Colt. Many guns come from Colt Custom Shop without Colt labeled grips ...

I picked it up for $1,275 ...
