Video—ARTV Review: Colt Wiley Clapp Stainless Commander .45 ACP Pistol

posted on January 24, 2019
Named for American Rifleman's most senior field editor, and designed with his recommendations in mine, the Colt Wiley Clapp Stainless Commander .45 ACP pistol is a 1911 built for 1911 aficionados. With a wide-notched Novak drift-adjustable rear sight, a brass bead front and a 3 lbs. 3 oz. trigger, this is a true piece of, as Wiley would say, "fightin' iron". For more on this excellent 1911, check out this "Rifleman Review" segment from a recent episode of American Rifleman TV.

Review: Leupold DeltaPoint Micro

Leupold’s DeltaPoint Micro doesn’t look like any other slide-mounted optic.
