After I pickup my Defender my next buy will most likely be a Colt 5" 1911. Must have combat/fixed sights and will be used as defense/target weapon. Looking at the Colt site----limited info-----1991, XSE, ser70, Spl Combat Gov???

Need some help as to which is which and what you would recomend.



Thanks for any help,
GTD

New series 70, mine needed nothing. If one would want a beavertail I could see that, but I don't have a problem with hammer bite or whatever, some do tho. Or look at a Kimber warrior tho they are a bit overpriced right now. SA operator is nice also. But I really really like my S-70rep.

Thanks much, looks like the XSE or if I have a few bucks more the Gunsite. The XSE sure looks alot like a larger Defender, which I like.

I've shot the GSP Colt. Pretty nice gun.

Thanks Jack! Maybe I'll have the extra for the GSP. Like you said better to get what you want the first time.
