    I'll say first that I prefer the blued versions of the Colt 1911. Coltstainless.JPG

    However, I like these three Colts 1911's due to my opinion of the lower maintenance of the stainless finish. I'd add that they shoot very well and require less work.

    I agree. A blued Colt is a thing of beauty, but my next one will be stainless. I'm thinking about a Commander Elite or a WC Commander SS. IMG_20181110_162148602.jpg

    I have a SS Gold Cup Trophy. It was my first 1911 and I love shooting it.

    A blued Colt 1911 is just pure nostalgia. An American icon.

    I'd prefer all my Colts to be blued.

    I prefer Stainless 1911s for Patrol work as they don't rust and don't show damage as easily as blued guns.
