I had a minor issue with my 1963 commercial Colt during last week's Wild Bunch match. It was an easy fix, but not something I could address at the range. I got to thinking I would like to have a back up 1911 for just such an event. I shoot traditional so it means no front strap treatment, no extended controls, no beavertail grip safeties, etc. I have considered Colt, SA, Remington, and various Philippine made offerings. I'd be interested to hear what my fellow addicts prefer in the way of simple 1911s or maybe more importantly, which to avoid.
