I have owned 4 Colt 1911's, 2 for IPSC Limited and two for carry. All of them required a talented gunsmith to make them right. Today, I can buy a low-mid grade Kimber for the same money as a Colt and it will run circles around the Colt as a finished product. If you must have the name "Colt" on the side of your gun, then you are gonna need to put some money into it. That's just the way it is.
Just some food for thought.
