Ok, I've got a heck of alot to learn here about 1911's & have been looking on the forum gathering some data for my feeble old head but I'm somewhat at a loss on Colt 1911's. I think I understand the series 80 is modified to satisfy the sue happy crowd and does not necessarily enhance the firearm. Now I show how dumb I are! Are all new Colts series 80? What do I want to get if there are still series 70? I've wanted a Colt 1911 for a long long time, now I wonder if I need to look for an old one or something else.
Thanks for any advice you would share with me.
