I can't recommend a Colt. My 1918 vintage 1911 slung off it's front sight last year. I've owned it 30 years this year and have only fired thousands of rounds through it without a single mechanical failure until this. If that sight had been on there 89 years it should a' stayed put. Here's a photo of it in it's shame beside a Gold Cup.
For some reason this computer won't properly post a photo. I'm gonna send it to OD as well.
