I'd look into a Springfield range officer. They can often be found for $800

I've never met anyone who said, "Damn, I wish I'd bought the _______ instead of the Colt." (Assuming they got the features they wanted.) Even when people start talking about a full tilt, no holds barred, money no object, custom build, Colt is on the very short list of makers that a serious builder will work with. That says something.

I'm sure they have the most experience with the pistol but the design goes to John browning much like the the m16 goes to stoner but everyone loves colt ARs. My favorites that have been in the mix is sig, H&K, FN. colt falls in the rear on experience. I may just have to find one and really check it out to see if its all that and a bag of chips.

Nothing wrong with a Colt, but only a fool makes a decision based on a name. I can think of quite a few "copies" that I'd rather have than a Colt that would not only be a better made gun, but would also hold value better as well.

My point exactly if colt used someone else's design why can another company take that design and produce better results.
