Glad to see you back!!

I gotta agree. Really wanted a Colt but they don't offer midlengths so I went with ArmaLite, BCM and DD middies. Well I did get the Colt/Walther M4-22 lr so do have the pony. And a Colt 1911!

The company Cerro Forge stamps all their receivers with that mark iirc.

I think it depends on what you are going to use the gun for.

If you want a "run and gun" SHTF, pure fighting rifle, I can't imagine that you could beat the Colt, no matter how much you were willing to spend
