Does anyone here have a beater but running 1911 colt for $600 or so. Does not have to be cosmetically perfect but running safely would be a plus.Age does not matter. Or am I asking for a unicorn? Help me I have a problem.

I know you're asking for a colt but Springfield is selling their defender line for 459.00 on GB.
They're supposed to be forged frames and slides.
So if you're looking for something to tinker with and learn that may be an option.

If it doesn't have to be a Colt these are great buys if you're looking for a solid 'knock around' 1911. I bought one and was pretty impressed with it but a friend bugged me until I sold it to him. Thinking about buying another one to replace it.

Just a preference to stick to Colts now.

I was just checking my phone and thought for a sec that you were announcing that my absolute favorite gun on the internet was available. My heart stopped. Thankfully it isn't so. When the time comes, if it ever does, y'all read it. Dibs. What you were able to achieve with the trigger on Deadpool still amazes me. I can't wait to drive that gat. The cards aren't looking great for me making it to LK's shoot this year, I'm still hoping but for sure next year if he decides to host it again.
