Well Ive got 3 1911's Colts at home another on lay a way . Plus my Mustang and 1 wheel gun. Colt is alive and kicking. I traded a Springer for a Colt I perfere to own the real thing not a South American copy. It 10 years what will the Colt be worth and what will the copy be worth. Oh so me a 60 or 70 year old Springfield that you can still carry and is dependable.
