Colt’s Wiley Clapp 21st Century LW Commander Talo Exclusive

Recently I had the opportunity to spend a dayattherange with possibly one of the best carry 1911’s on the market. Colt’s Wiley Clapp Light Weight Commander Talo Exclusive. Upon original examination I realized three things. One it is an aesthetically pleasing pistol, two Colt’s original 1950’s design was spot on and three, I now understood why this pistol carries the moniker “Everything you need, with nothing you don’t.”
