      I'm sorry, but I have been appalled at the quality of the current colts that are on the shelves. I was gonna finally suck it up last year and buy one. It was horrible. I've also looked at several at Gun shows. I'm sorry - but while the name on the side of the gun might keep me from losing as much money when I go to sell it, many of the more modern ones just don't have the same quality control.

      Besides, I've slowly worked my way up in price over time, and I'll likely only buy Ed Browns if I want a 1911 in 45 again.

      You are racist against plastic internal parts, in 1911's, aren't you?

      It really is too bad that Colt is using cheap parts, they would make a killing if they just made a simple, high quality M1911.

      Very poor choice of a word, it has no use used outside living organisms.

      Colts are worth it only because people make them worth it. People seem to be buying them at high resale value, and if your buying a gun that someday you may get rid of then a Colt is a good investment. I personally believe they are over priced and feel my money was much better spent on a Springfield Loaded Model 1911.

      No, it's not that. Parts are fit poorly, white paint isn't even in the "dots" on the sights. Finish on the parts were horrible in places.

      Good lord. That is awful. Is this just the very new production guns or going back a few years?? All of the Colt's I've ever shot were pretty decent, though I haven't seen any of the new ones.

      This was two colts I looked at last year, I believe. I decided... never mind. I am sure they all are not like that. But 2 in the same shop were, and these were new guns. I passed and lost interest in Colts.

      If I remember right, there was even something akin to "gouges" on 1 edge of the grip saftey. I was really shocked.

      The new 38 Super I looked at was perfect and it was all I could do to keep from buying the gun on spure of moment. I walked away to think about it, came back next day and it was gone. Win some, lose some.
