I have had the itch to own a 1911 for a while now. Only problem is, I chose my glock23 after renting 4 different guns but no one around me rents any 1911s. Im looking for something that is 100% reliable out of the box for less than $1,000(preferably 800), has a blued finish,and is a government model. I have been looking at different colt 70 series and wondered if anyone had owned one. By the way I could care less how accurate it is at 50 yards on a bench this will be a ccw in the winter and a range gun. Opinions?
