    Recommend a full size colt please!

    I love my defender but have been firing the heck out of it and I am considering a full sized to use at the range.

    Can anyone tell me what model is the best bang for the buck new or used and if you see one LMK?

    I will probably have the trigger done and thats it any thoughts?

    For range use? I'd go with a Gold Cup or Special Combat.

    Colt Gold Cup

    I like Colt Gold Cups for range use, and have a number of them. There are lots of used ones on the market, or you can buy the new Trophy models. Here are three that I use frequently, two in .45 and one in 10mm:

    Thumbs up

    Check out Fusion Firearms.

    They are a ton of high quality gun for the money.
    I have a Fusion "top end" on one of my frames and it's excellent. Super accurate - extremely well fit - forged and machined slides - get a forged/machined frame. No MIM (metal injected molded) parts.

    Plenty of photos here. Click on "New Fusion Firearms" to the left of the page.

    Have a Series 70 Gov't(purchased new circa '85). I would shop around and maybe you can score a used one then have whatever work done and save a couple bucks. Good Luck!!

    Okay, I recommend a full-size Colt... for everyone.

    I don't have one, but this is the one I want.

    Colt Special Combat Government Carry, #O1970CY. With its combat sights, ambidextrous thumb safety, and extended mag well, the only thing you may need to do is the trigger.
