Have several. 1911 frames/grips on a full size gun are essentially the same. Changing grips can help with large hands/long fingers. Finding a good used (out of production) Series 70 Colt as recommended may not be real easy. I have Series 70s and Series 80s and can really tell no difference though you will hear a lot of 'information' re the firing pin safety in the 80. Moslty bunk!. Personal perference order [which should mean little to you!] ... Colt (after all they are the 1911 guys), Springfiled Armory ('fully loaded'), ParaOrdance, Kimber, Charles Daly. Have not tried the Taurus but like the writeups. Having listed those, there are some custon/semicustom makers that are superb ... at a premium.
