Round table gun review’s Colt Lightweight Commander gun review. It’s a simple scheme. Shooters from different backgrounds get together, shoot guns, discuss guns and rate guns. Thumbs up, thumbs down or the ever noncommittal “meh” are the only options. What starts out as four separate reviews culminates in a broad overview and full bodied review of each individual gun. WE WELCOME COMMENTS! Agree, disagree, call us names, whatever you wish… we even welcome discord if it will ultimately serve the prospective buyer of these guns and help them make informed decisions.

Colt XSE™ Series
The Colt XSE Series features everything that top shooters demand in a pistol. The foundation for these pistols is a forged receiver, a forged steel slide, a forged stainless steel barrel and a forged steel slide stop. Front and rear slide serrations come standard along with Novak® sights. The Colt Upswept Beavertail Grip Safety with Palm Swell and enhanced cut under the trigger guard allow for a secure hold on the pistol. The Colt Tactical Ambidextrous Safety Lock allows for either right or left handed operation. The addition of a one piece, full length guide rod rounds out a pistol suited perfectly for the shooting enthusiast or the personal defense user alike.
