    What DFW area gun store has the best in stock selection of Colt and Springfield Armory 1911's?
    Colt and Springfield Armory only please.

    I like to look them over before buying.
    I'm overly anal about cosmetic anomalies.

    I usually go to Riflegear in Plano, but they're currently out of the models I want.

    Thank you.

    Updated to include Springfield Armory 1911's too.
    Colts are impossible to find.

    IF you're looking for something specific, GunBroker is your freind.

    You want to look at Collectors Firearms website, I know Houston is a days drive back and forth. But it's Texas, they don't have a speed limit out there, do they?

    Honestly is hard to find specific models locally, there really aren't than many stocking dealers in my experience. Many of them are willing to order something for your from their distributors though. LGS are hit more miss because when they get something quality, they usually sell it quickly. Have you checked out:

    DFW Shooting Sports (Bedford)
    Frisco Gun Club (Frisco)
    DFW Gun Range (Dallas)
    Targetmasters (Garland)
    PT Partners (Seagoville)

    That's my go to. Not sure what they carry in the way of new Colt's but they do have a decent selection of SA.

    Oakwood Arms in Bedford had a LNIB 9mm Commander on consignment when I as there a couple of weeks ago if that's of interest.

    Euless Guns and Ammo isn't far from DFW Shooting Sports and Oakwood Arms but I haven't been there in several years (used to be on my way home) so I'm not sure what they stock.

    Both Jackson Armory and Ray's Sporting Goods in Dallas will probably have decent selections but I'd call to make sure.

    Defender Outdoors in Ft Worth is supposed to be chock full of stuff but I haven't made the trip out there yet.

    Is there any models that you are specifically interested in? There’s rifle gear in Plano, gunmaster in Plano, and a little further north there is best pawn in Denison and past and blast in whitesboro.

    Jackson armory rocks but usually with semi custom guns and antiques.

    Gunbroker is the exact opposite of what I'm looking for?

    How so? Getting exactly what you want at a cheaper price and no sales tax? Your right that's not for everyone.

    I'm guessing he wants to lay eyes and hands on before buying which isn't a bad plan if one is about to lay out significant amounts of that funny green stuff.

    That's right. There's too many 1911 lemons out there.

    Uneven frame dust covers, uneven slide recoil spring tunnels, off center or lightly struck roll marks. Hammers striking the slide as they fall. Trigger guards cut way too thin.
    Sights you can push out with finger pressure.

    And I'm talking about Colts and Springfields, even some of the Les Baers too.

    I want to hold it in my hand before I pay for it.
