thinking about trading my taurus 1911

ok here is the deal.. I have a buddy who has a colt .45 and he has had it for a few years.. he got it new and it has a low round count. I have seen it before and it is in great shape. im not sure on the model though.. but im thinking (maybe/more than likely im an idiot) a colt is a better weapon. I havent seen it in over a year and i was very uneducated on pistols then so im unsure...

my question is...

Withought knowing the model.. is there any colt (brand) weapon that would be a bad trade for a taurus?

If its a pistol, its more than likely a 1911, unless its a revolver.

quite possibly... it is a little shorter but if i remember correctly (was drunk at 4am) it looked similar.. sound like a good trade?

Uh hell yeah. Colts are solid guns, and have a great history behind them. I have a Stainless 1911 Series 80. I love it.

Colt in any form is worth more than any Taurus in my opinion.

here is my 1911

here is a camera pic of the colt.. it is a series 80 MK IV.. it looks to be in pretty good shape with minimal flaws (just wear of an older pistol... he got it years ago)



the 1911 shoots awesome but i have always wanted a "colt" I will let the board choose my destiny on my home defense weapon (have a shotgun too lol)

The Colt is a 1911 Officers model. I would trade in a hearbeat. Hurry up and do it before he realizes how bad he is screwing himself.

You don't own a real 1911 unless yours killed a man.

Then you got the real deal.
