In the latest installment of getting back to its roots, Colt announced this week that a high polish Royal Blue finish is making a come back on at least one handgun model.

Colt is set to offer one of the pistols in their  Classic line in the throwback mirrored finish. As befitting the retro ode to the company’s Commercial Government Model of yesteryear, the .45 ACP will have a Series 70 firing system, National Match Barrel, fixed staked-on front sights, double diamond wood grip panels, and a spurred hammer. As with standard M1911A1s, the single-action pistol will have a 5-inch barrel and an 8.5-inch overall length.

As a background, Colt long used a deep rich charcoal blue or “fire blue” on highly polished slides and frames going back to the early 1900s while their famed Royal Blue finish peaked on the company’s Python model .357 revolvers in the late 20th Century, the company moved away from it in most models about two decades ago. This left only the licensed U.S. Armament Corp.-produced Colt 1903 Pistols as about the only cataloged “Royal Blue” pony in the stable.

But you came here for those sweet, sweet photos, didn’t you?

The MSRP on the Colt Royal Blue 1911 Classic is $1,499. Now if they only bring it back for the new generation of Python…

Realme’s 125W UltraDART charging tech can charge a phone to 33% in just 3 minutes

Only a day after OPPO revealed its 125W Flash Charge, Realme has announced its own take on ultra-fast charging that lets a 4000mAh battery reach a full charge in just 20 minutes.

Known as 125W UltraDART Flash Charging, Realme’s new tech is an upgrade to its 65W SuperDart that’s found in phones like the Realme X50 Pro 5G.

Ultra-fast charging may be worrisome in terms of heat generation, but Realme claims its new bi-cell charging solution comes with temperature control that ensures the battery remains under 40 degrees Celsius.

Without regard for temperature, the 125W UltraDART can actually fully charge a 4000mAh battery in just 13 minutes. Though more efficient, it invites potential charging accidents. 

Other multi-layer protections are also in place so that a smartphone can still be safely used even when it is being charged through the 125W UltraDART. The tech is also compatible with other charging protocols such as VOOC and Warp.
