    TEN STEPS TO A GOOD M1911 STYLE PISTOL

    The first consideration, of course, is appearance. If you are buying this gun as a collector, this is paramount. Most of the suggestions that follow will not be applicable. If you are looking for a "bullseye" or target grade pistol, here are some important things to consider. For a range or target weapon, do not rule out any of the numerous M1911 style copies of foreign and domestic manufacture.

    ALL GOOD GUNS ARE NOT MADE BY COLT

    Some of these are fully equal to Colt in quality and many Colt repair parts may fit, such as the sears, disconnectors and springs. Even hammers, slide latches and barrels may be interchangable. This makes them easy and practical to both accurize and repair. There is certainly a pride in owning a genuine Colt but the Colt Mystique does not help downrange and an equally accurate pistol may be found in other makes for half the price.

    Plenty of very good tips there QK - it can be a minefield for folks just starting and any and all info is useful, to help prevent getting either what they didn't really want - or a lemon!!!

    Nice find QK, very good info.

    That's for sure the truth, contrary to popular belief and Colt addicts.
