.45 ID\'s?

Help me out here, fella's ... I'd like to buy a new Colt or a nice used one in .45 or .38 super, maybe? Don't know ANYTHING about .38 supers but they sound interesting? Accuracy? I'm told of poor bullet headspacing? There's so many .45's running around, I can't keep 'em straight. Last I knew, the Series 70's bragged about a new collet bushing. Good? Worth it? Better to go post war? Pre-war? GI? What have they got these days, current? Series '80's, I see ... what's that? 1911AI and 1911's, GI spec, new? What the hey? Over?

Re: .45 ID\'s?

Will do, 45 Man. Thanks. I've owned a WWI service pistol that I thought was terrific. And a custom target job from the then pistol coach/gunsmith at the US Military Academy at West Point. It shot much better than I ever will. I had to trade it off when I took a police job and was required to carry a revolver. So, these days ... I'm starting over. I'll make a call and see what comes up. Thanks, again! <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by 45automaticman:
A lot of choices out there these days, you could go used or Colt is making many fine new guns these days. You can call Colt directly and get the new catalog at 1-800-962-2658 and see if there is anything you like. I prefer .45s myself, my only experience with .38 super was not a good one but I know many people with supers that are very happy with them...<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
