My dad just got me that "The Complete Book of the Combat 1911" magazine, it's really cool! Good war stories and other articles, too.

Don't believe ANYTHING you hear about Colt anymore. I just bought a brand new 1991 for $529 today at a gun show, there were PLENTY of them there. Try to find one for under $500 if you can, but the price I paid seems to be the standard around here for now.

I've got nothing against Springfield, but I hate guys that plug them at Colt's expense. I handled a Springfield Mil-Spec today; didn't like it as much as the Colt. Blockier front strap (not as curved as a Colt or Kimber), slanted grip serrations (incorrect on a mil-spec gun), and oh yeah, it's made in Brazil. That's why it's a little less expensive. Anyway don't let magazines influence your thinking too much. Only trust us guys at the forum.
