Just curious...I've been doing a lot of research on the newer Colt 1911 pistols, specifically their new Series70 offerings. I've seen everything ranging from new Colts are complete trash to they're the best thing since sliced bread. I figure the truth is somewhere in between and they are probably decent for the money, but I might be incorrect. So, what's the general consensus on the newest manufactured Colts? Is the QC there for a $900-$1000 piece, i.e. paying for name only, or are they indeed worth the asking price? I've never owned any 1911, and really only like the basic GI or Mil-Spec look...no beaver-tails, no tacti-kewl look, or other features. It seems it's pretty hard to find a basic 1911 with a great reputation. I know there are offerings from Springfield (GI/MS), Remington, RIA, but that's about it. Is a Colt really worth more than a standard RIA or Remington or Springer? I really like the Series70 Colt's, but not much is said about them. Thanks! Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
