Funny story behind that, actually. A long time Colt employee on the 1911-A1 line was to be honored, but no one could think of a really proper way to do so. After a bit of head scratching, someone suggested the incorporate his name into the pistol's roll marks. All agreed and it was made so.Originally posted by Byron:
I understand the difference between the Series '70s and '80s but what does "Mark IV"
headline on Series '80s mean?
Are there "Mark I, II and III"? Is 1991 Series a "Mark VI"???
Sorry to be fussy about minor details.
