Can't go wrong with a poney,,, I am partial to my Nighthawk AAC, a lot of good ones out there, just depends on your pocketbook and what features you want, factory and custom makers,, I have only three 1911's and one is an old warhorse, my father's legacy from the Korean era and it still shoots very well although it normally stays locked in the safe for my son one of these years.

Dan Wesson, Springfield, used Les Baer, Sig, s&w. There are TONS of options. What will it be used for?

If you want a genuine 1911 type pistol, buy a Colt. If you want a knock-off, buy something else.

While I am a Colt fan, your statement is not accurate IMO.

There are several companies that make quality 1911's.

Simply not correct information. A recommendation for Colt would have been sufficient without the misinformation.

sorry Skimbell, but i too have to agree with these two statements. yes Colt is the original and the one everyone copies, but most are hardly "knock-offs" as you called them. anything else is a copy if it's not a Colt, but that doesn't mean they are less in terms of quality.

My statement is accurate. I didn't say that there weren't "several companies that make quality 1911's".
I said that these several companies make knock-off's. They are. Colt is the original. Anything else is a copy/knock-off.

when you use the word "knock-off" that implies a cheap copy of the original. many of them are hardly cheap copies of the Colt!

Take the subtle hints that we're all trying to give you here. You're not going to make any friends by going down this road.

By your logic, Ford would be the "original" automobile and everything else would be a "copy/knock-off". See how ridiculous that sounds? Tell Porsche and Ferrari owners that unless they own a Ford, their cars are just "copies" or "knock-offs".

I promise you'll continue to lose this argument for as long as you want to continue it. Best thing is just to take our advice and move on from this point.
