COLT 1991 GOVERNMENT STAINLESS
The Colt 1991 series of 1911 pistols are a mix of old and new. In 1990, Colt's market research showed that one of the company's strongest selling points was buyers' desire for pistols manufactured "the way they used to make them". Colt responded to this by creating new models. The 1991 series is meant to utilize some of the original aspects of the company's 1911A1 pistol, while at the same time offering features to suit the demands of today's shooters.
The stainless Government 1991 keeps the solid trigger from the 1911A1, but it's longer for those who prefer more trigger pull than what was standard on the 1911A1.
The sights closely resemble the original style, but are actually a partridge style sight, which give a better sight picture.
The grip safety on the 1991 Government is flat, just like that on the original 1911A1. Likewise, the 1991 uses a spur style hammer, rather than a bobbed style as found on many other modern 1911's.
The grips on the stainless Government 1991 are a composite rubber checkered type rather than wood, giving the user a more positive hold on the pistol.
Of course, stainless steel wasn't used on pistols in the early part of the 20th century, but those who live in humid climates will welcome the corrosion resistance, even if it's not like the original.
While Colt has added many old-style aesthetic changes to the 1991, the insides of the pistols are as technologically advanced as any in Colt's line. You get all of the accuracy and dependability of a 21st century pistol, combined with some of the looks of the early 1900's.

Colt Stainless 1991 Government reviews
5 out of 5
I just purchased a 1991 Govt in stainless
steel. I love it. I was willing to pay the Colt Premium because of
positive experiences with 1991s and negative experiences with Springfield
