That's where I was going to suggest you start and stop your search. They are fundamentally the same pistol, except that the 1991 is a standard production model and it has a firing pin safety (which would be a good thing if you ever plan to carry it), while the Series 70 is a Custom Shop pistol that does not have a firing pin safety.

You should be able to get a 1991 for under $1000. I don't think you can get a Series 70 for less than $1000.
