WVsig,

That's a fine pair of nice Colt's.
Are you sure you want to keep the duo-tone series 80 MKIV?

Best Regards

Oh I am sure I want to keep it...

I searched long and hard for one like it. I need to get some trigger work done on it but beyond that I am leaving it just as it is. The trigger is good but I want it to be great.

Maybe we can work something out and I can send it to you and at least you can play with it. LOL

This was my first ever 1911. It shot flawlessly despite the ultra compacts being bad voodoo. Too bad it was stolen a year ago

Looks like Remington is offering $50 rebates with a 1911 purchase (nice indeed if you can find the base price attractive as well to boot): Seems like people either love em or not (with not much in between--me, I love em ):

After watching this thread and re-reading BAC1023 Buyer's Guide for the 6th time, I felt the urge in my loins to get another 1911. BAC1023 states:

Quote:
All in all, we have a new 1911 selling for $650 with all the features you need and none that you don't in a very attractive package. Couple that with the fact that its built entirely in the United states by the largest gun manufacturer in the world and we have something that's almost too good to be true. Naturally, this gun performed flawlessly at the range with the limited number of rounds I have through it and all reviews that I have read have been overwhelmingly positive. I think Ruger may have the best entry level 1911 on the market, but they need to catch up to demand to somehow keep prices stable.

I decided to take his advice and buy a Ruger SR1911. The kicker my LGS has the stainless steel version for $578 + tax.
