    Have two Colts a Series '70 out of the box stock & a tricked out Series '80 both bought new. Thousands of rounds through the 'Series 70 Thousands & Thousands of rounds through the Series '80 with just normal cleaning & recoil spring changes the only thing that ever broke was the slide stop on the '80 five years ago. Both are accurate both are reliable.

    Bought a Sig C3 1911 NIB. Good looking pistol handled well accurate enough but couldent get it to run. Sent it back to Sig twice & must say they do have first class customer service, but still FTF FTE smoke stacks. Broke 2 barrel bushings, well cracked 'em looked like that cheap MIM crap.

    So If it were me.....COLT....!,

    I loved my MK IV. Son-in-law has it now with the understanding that it is never sold unless back to me.

    Why even think of the rest when the BEST is available. COLT.
    Colt Commander LW. I think shooting twice is just plain silly.

    A P220 Vs. a Colt would be a tough choice for me. 1911 Sig Vs. 1911 Colt is easy; pony all the way.

    I like Colt for the classic name, BUT it's a vintage model and doesn't have the lowered and flared ejection port that the Sig does, has lesser sights, and there may be other features that are present on the Sig but not on the Colt. Start with which one feels better in your hand, then assess which has better trigger, then look at price and availability. The one is obviously on GunBroker, so you may have a shot at getting it for a good price, although 1911s seem to be going for top dollar in all venues these days.

    since SIG doesn't make a 1911, the Colt is the correct answer.
