It figures, I recently replaced all the blued 'wrong' parts on mine with stainless :biglaugh:M1991A1 said:JeffC,
This is coltjeeper using my brother's username. Yes, the CE did come from the factory with an ambi safety. There were 500 in a limited run from the Custom Shop in '87 that had them (the safety was blue and identical to a standard 1911 safety, just ambi) along with a blue drop in grip safety (like on the XSE), a blue plunger tube, hammer pin, and sear pin. I believe that was everything.
Oh, btw, I know this to be true since I bought one NIB from someone recently and called Colt to find out what exactly the deal was with the differences between it and a standard CE.
Okay that ambi does sound like a Meuschke, and I guess I'll need a stainless mag or twoReCoiL_JuNKiE said:
...Considering the ambi-safety, on the left side, it has a different configuration than others ... the wing has been "shaved and grooved" to accomodate the sear pin which protrudes out slightly from the frame. Kinda like a superfiscal mate or "intramate" between the parts mentioned.
Two stainless mags came with the firearm.
