    help the New Guy

    A few weeeks ago I borrowed my brother-in-laws Colt 1911 series 80 and just loved it. Last week I bought a Springfield XD 45 (a deal I could not refuse) and am not crazy about it. I think I want to go back to a 1911. Since I don't have access to a bunch of 1911's what would you recommend? Keeping in mind that I really like the Colt so something similar in size and feel would be good. If it ends up being a colt what series etc.. should I look for? I want something to shoot and I don't have to worry about tearing up a great/valuable gun. Thanks.

    My budget is somewhere around $800.00. The purpose is just target shooting.

    Get one with adjustable sights several makes to choose from and don't over look some of the used ones. I like Colt the best but many other good ones out there see which feels best in your hand.

    I carry a Sprinfield GI Spec 1911 with Hogue grips and it has proven to be a great target weapon. I recommend rubber grips (wrap around) with any target pistol, even on the hot days at the range it doesn't slip.
