Colt is Colt, but over an older one, I'd choose a brand new PT 1911, no doubts. The Taurus is a value for money deal, and Colts within this price range may not be any eye-candies at all.

Don't plan, just take it!

Without any doubt Colt 1911 in good condition is more solid and reliable.

@zeeshan malik

our resident 1911 expert (or die hard fan) Moeen bhai usually says "A COLT IS A COLT, IS A COLT". That should pretty much sum it all up.

If you can find a Colt M1911A1 in good condition, meaning the barrel, firing pin, firing pin spring, Extractor, Main Spring & Recoil Spring in good condition then go for it. But let me tell you it's hard but not impossible to find in that condition. Other wise I will suggest that you should go for the new Taurus 1911.

+1!

Exactly what I meant, the 1911 is perhaps the gun composed of most parts and components, so only a more experienced of 1911 lovers will be able to tell the actual condition of used Colt, and a perfect and well maintained piece would be hard to get within price range of PT 1911.

Btw, barrel bushings were missed above!

You can't go wrong with a PT-1911 (Unless you don't know how to handle one)! It's a beautifully crafted piece of art with an unbeatable price tag. I've shot over 400 rounds through mine so far and it works like a monster! DEAD accurate and reliable. And when I say DEAD accurate, I MEAN D-E-A-D accurate! Go for it with your eyes closed.

Well if u want a colt in a very good shape then u can ask MOEEN he has a fully rigged 1911 up for sale . Heard that Dan wessons have arrived in Lahore although price is steep at 250 k but is much better than a Taurus . If u can get parts from abroad get a used colt

I think that's how you feel 24/7, no? ;)

And when I say dead accurate, I mean 48/50, 130/150, 144/150. 1 - 1 1/2 Inch groups at 15 meters, nothing outside a 9. In a competent shooters hands, the PT-1911 is capable of nothing but 10s.

I dunno where you are from... but in Lahore, I was once (some 5 months ago) able to find a used colt for 30k, which then my cousin bought and took to a gunsmith for some little tweaks. If you could do the same, it might be a better option than pt 1911. However, as mentioned by the seniors, new pt-1911 for a new user is often hassle free and with the minimum amount of problems.

Dear Zeeshan brother, if you travelling to peshawar, I am sure you will find a used Colt. However, please make sure before you buy it that you check its interiors thoroughly.

Yes I do own a PT1911 as it is the only 1911 available as an nib in PK yet, also pretty economical. If you are not able to find a used colt in good condition, I suggest you go for a pt1911 and you won't be disappointed.

On a side note, do consider buying pt1911 instead of a used colt if you are new to the 1911 platform. Unless you are planning to put some 50k rounds through it, the pt1911 would stand the test of time. ;)

I havent been visiting the gun market lately. But I will keep an eye out for used colts :)

CD.

I have a Kimber Stainless Target II that right out of the box punches tight little hole patterns in paper I'd recommend to any beginning or intermediate pistol shooter that can lay their hands on one if they get the chance.

hahahahhahaha... absolutely brother... :)

BTW, an NIB colt IS better than most of the Kimbers. And with some gunsmithing and upgrades, it can even be comparable to custom brands ;)

Zeeshan Bhai, if you ask me, you should goto HIRA and buy the 1911 with rails model. Hira has some pieces left. The guys are not that nice and are definitely pricy but you'll get the piece. In my personal opinion, the rails model shoots better than the other one, for it has some added weight in front of the gun which helps in muzzle flip reset. Also, dont forget that you can install a tactical light on it for HD purposes. Keeping a gun at home without a light is pretty useless IMHO.

Buy the Norinco, hands down. u wont regret it ONE BIT! The problem with most of us is that we often tend to go for a famous firearm, influenced by Sanjay Dutt and or Vin deisle. but they aren't neccesarily the best option. I have 2 of these Chinese 1911s among other guns and 1911s. i even have a Colt. but the Chinese bugger is fast becoming my favorite!
