    What time period at Colt produced the highest quality 1911s? I continually find myself drawn to the guns built in the 20s, 30s and 40s. To my eye, the lines on the 1911 guns in the 30s were exceptional and seem to have steadily gone downhill reaching a downward peak in the 70s. I will say the...

    I have been watching this one for a while now. He started by listing it at $1200. Now $1150. I have bought one pistol from this same seller and I know he competed and shot his 1911s a good bit, but this one looks good in the pics. It is a Series 70 from 1977. Any info would be appreciated. Sorry...

    They realize that a nice 1911 is a good weapon for personal protection. They feel they can buy one that will last beyond their lifetime. My best one is here:

    This is a very clean 1979 Colt MKIV/Series 70 45ACP. I am the 2nd owner however it has only been fired by the original owner who bought it new in 1979. I am not great at taking pictures and she is a beauty in person. The original owner said less than 500 rounds down the pipe and he is a...

    So, I purchased this Colt about a month ago thinking I would never find the "specific date" Colt I wanted for sentimental reasons. This one was one year off the mark, but I was ok with that. Fast-forward….I found the Colt and date I want. Now I need to fund that purchase since I don't have the...

    I own many of these 1911's pistols. These are my Top Three that I use for protection every week. They got on my top three from many years of range and gunsmithing work. I'd say 3000+ rounds with no failures.

    Novice who is in the market for my 1st 1911 & am thinking a Colt (I think) 1911 Govt. My interest is in historical - or at least history inspired - firearms so probably boring to others but not me. I would like thoughts on what to buy 1ST...thanks! I live in metro Atlanta.

    I've been contemplating getting a 9mm Commander from the mid-60's or early 70's to use for a build. Two questions: 1) Is there a 9mm Commander that's more desirable for this purpose? 2) Who should I look to that doesn't take 5 years and cost $8K? Would love a Ted Yost build, especially as he...

    My local gun store has a Colt MK IV S80 .45 acp they are selling on consignment. It's got a match barrel, trigger and action job, and custom wood grips with adjustable sights. Seems to be in really good shape. They're asking $620 for it. Anyone know about these mid 80's to 90's Colts? Is that...

    If we were talking about whatever flavor of the month glock clone everyone wants, I'd prefer to get 2-3 mags in the box, as spares often cost north of $30-40 and are only available from the manufacturer. But if we're talking about 1911s, I'm perfectly happy getting only one crappy low-end...

    For a few years I had the idea of building up a beater Colt. I spend a lot of time in the Utah desert and it can be a dusty place. Bouncing along on a truck seat or getting bumped off boulders as I poke around in canyons isn't an ideal place for a collectable pistol. In the following posts I'll...
