Talo Distributors Announces 50th Anniversary Engraved Colt 1911

Talo 50th Anniversary Colt

Talo Distributors recently announced a new limited run of Colt 1911 pistols to commemorate its 50th anniversary of business. The new guns feature the detailed work of Ray Armand Jr, an award winning firearm engraver.

At its base, the anniversary gun is a royal blue Government model 1911. It is a Series 70 version and chambered for the .45 ACP cartridge.

Both the slide and the frame receive extensive engraving work from Armand. All of the controls are polished and retail the royal blue coloring. The grip panels are made of dark walnut and engraved with a Colt logo and design that matches the slide and frame work. The screws that hold the grip panels in place are blued.

Only 300 of these guns are being made. Serial numbers of RFC001 through RFC300 will be used. I suspect that at least several will stay in the hands of company employees. While a suggested retail price was not offered, I expect that these will command a price in excess of $2k due to the extensive customization by Armand. The guns are now shipping to dealers that place orders for them.

Talo offers many custom and limited edition firearms from manufacturers. For example, the company recently announced it was offering a Colt SAA that was being made for the .32-20 WCF cartridge.
