About Colt Government

Colt’s Manufacturing Company (CMC) represents one of the most famous American guns manufacturers, respected and well known worldwide. Sam Colt established the first Colt’s factory in England in 1851. Few years later, he managed to expand also to American continent and factory was founded in Hartford, in Connecticut. In 1891, Colt came into a contract with John Browning, when long and profitable relationship started.

Colt Government was introduced in the 1970s’, when Colt started production of the Government model.There have been made several improvements and design changes to the original pistol model such as a different barrel bushing. The pistol was available in 9mm, .45 ACP and in addition in .38 Super calibers. Since 1999, Colt decided to produce the 1911 Government model only in .45 ACP calibers, with a typical blued and stainless finish, that was known as Government Model. In 2000, model called XS Government Model was introduced. This pistol was made of a stainless steel and was available only in .45 ACP calibers. This model was a bit more luxurious model, featuring mahogany grips, the triple combat sights, an ambidextrous safety catch, a trigger with adjustable trigger stop and magazine capacity was increased to 8 rounds.In 2000, Colt started production of the Colt Special Combat Government Competition model, which was a single-action semi-automatic, chambered in .45 ACP caliber, with the barrel length of 5”, an ambidextrous safety catch, Bo-Mar micrometer sights and 8 rounds magazine capacity.

What Makes a Great Colt Government Holster

A perfect 1911 Government holster holds your firearm without the need of a retention strap. The natural retention of each material takes care of it and you can even hold the scabbard upside down without the firearm falling off. Or you can rely on the retention strap which can have several levels of retention. Another treat of a great Government 5 Inch gunholster are smooth edges on the outside. This way the holster stays protected from abrasions, scratches or any other intrusive surfaces that it may stumble upon. A perfect finish of a holster is another feature. A 1911 Government holster keeps dust, moisture and water away. Taking care of your holster is an important thing and there are many options including break-in or adjustment. Government 5 Inch holsters can come in a large variety of materials and carry styles that will allow you an easy draw and re-holstering while being comfortable at all times.
