Colt Recall

Colt's Manufacturing Company LLC has determined that the Slide Lock Safety and the Recoil Spring Guide Pad in certain Colt model pistols were not manufactured to Colt specifications and must be replaced. All of these Colt models were sold after March 2007 and the range of serial numbers affected by this product recall is as follows:

1911 WWI Replica (O1911) From: 4597WMK To: 5414WMK
1918 WWI Replica (O1918) From: 1001WWI To: 3431WWI
New Agent (O7810D) From: GT01001 To: GT04505
Combat Elite (O8011XSE) From: CG10000E To: CG11293E
Defender (O7000D) From: DR33036 To: DR35948
Talo Night Defender (O7000NDF) From: NDF0001 To: NDF0400
It seems the thumb safties and the recoil guide rod pads are a bit soft.

Damn. My WWI Reproduction, my Defender and my New Agent all fall within that range.

More information here. At least I don't need to send the Defender in.........

Crap. I have to wait until I get home and check my New Agent. I've got a feeling that it'll be going in, too.

Thanks for the info, Xavier!

Better news!

I had purchased a spare recoil spring assembly for the New Agent, last October, so I could have one ready to drop in when it came to change springs.

I got a email response from Colt customer service this morning, telling me to send that spare assembly in separately for replacement. Colt FTW!

My new agent needs to go back too. I wonder if it would be better to have them switched with aftermarket parts at a smith. I don't want to send it through the mail.
