Anyone care to speculate on the chances of Colt making a Light Weight full size Government?

It seems so obvious to me. What is it that I'm missing?

I dont look for Colt to offer anything like that. For the time being they are doing a pretty fair job of putting full size all steel GM's and some LW Commanders on the shelves. With the current trends in LW and compact size I dont see them changing anything.

Still lurking eh byron?


Did you ever get one of those 5lb Oly Arm FAR's yet?

Don't forget, Benelli makes a semi-auto 5.5lb 20 gauge, now complete w/ a factory extended magazine ! Oooh...Ahhhh!

Too, if our gun rights were ever restored, an FN Five Seven Pistol is about the size of a Government Model, but only 27oz. loaded w/ 20 (!) rounds of ammo. And, it's companion submachine gun is only 6.5lbs, loaded w/ 50 rounds of ammo!

I guess you already knew that though...<s>


There is one other thing I've been meaning to speak to you about, though.
Seriously, have you ever considered a Browning HP? I'm finding mine to be a real cozy companion. Much easiet to tote than an all steel government. It is 32oz. unloaded , but for some reason it seems much lighter than that.
I think it is just that it is easier to carry more bullets in concealed carry.
A 7 round magazine of 230grn. .45, and a magazine of 12 rounds of 115grn. 9mm, wiegh the same.

Just a few thoughts from the lighter side


Maybe Saint Cindy will intervene on out behalf, eh?

Well, everyone that wants one should call up Lew Horton's and ask when they'll have one. Colt makes a lot of limited runs for LH, and maybe if you guys are vocal enough (hey, make up names each time you call, so it seems like there's more of you :)

Either way, I doubt the gun would sell well, mostly dependant on price.

Hey byron,

I don't know the model # on the benelli shotgun.
All I know is that they list their 20gauge M1, inertia operated, at 5.7 lbs.

Hope that helps.
