Hey everyone, I'm looking to buy a Colt M1911 .45 and I'm hesitating between the XSE, Gold Cup and eventually special combat. Now I'm having a hard time determining which Gold Cup is best, there are so many variations and different series. I'm really looking for something reliable, made of carbon steel (stainless steel is ok I guess but I've heard it's a bit more prone to scratches), 5" coming with 8 round mags. I'm currently looking at the o1980xse / o1070xse, the impossible to find o5870cs and a special combat o1970cy because it fits my description and looks the best. I really want to get a Colt and I know that some people would recommend custom guns at this price point but I'm set on a Colt lol. I like adjustable sights and I really hate stock built in sights (I'm not sure how to call them), I also have mixed feelings about the look of front serrations. I would like to spend around $1500 and more only if worth it; I understand the world of diminishing returns. Any recommendations from experts are greatly appreciated!
