    I know id change out a few things on it, but is this gun worth buying. I got a 1911 sig and love it but I want another 1911 without the rail. Is this gun flawed or will it be the best thing for me to buy

    What do you want to change about it? Odds are that you can a different model with everything you want already on the pistol.

    My first hand experience with 5 different kimbers hasnt been desirable, FTFs out the wazoo.Their customer service and quality control isnt the best

    Wow thanks I was bout to drop a granx on them, taurus makes a very similar one and I heard there customer service is reall good. These are the two guns that im on the fence about. Should I go with the taurus or should I go with a colt

    Ya buddy, that will be a great gift to yourself. I think those were S70 Colts with compensators on them. Ive heard that Colt has top notch CS

    Pretty sure they are plastic on Colts too. At least they have been in the past.

    You do know that a comp on a .45 ACP does nothing but add forward weight...right?

    This is the only Colt I've found that benefits/needs a comp!

    My Colt Government XSE 460 Rowland.

    They are, most manufactures use composite MSH's today.
