I received my Series 70 Colt 1911 in early April of this year. The 1911 is a "must-have", "bucket-list" pistol for me. Not just because it should be, but because I actually used and carried one on occasion when I was in the Army. I actually had qualified with one. I wanted to get one that was as close to the M1911A1 I had in 69-70 and the Series 70 is as close as it gets in a new 1911. The only parts that are not correct are the sights (I replaced the stocks with correct GI brown nylon stocks and a correct Colt curved MSH with lanyard loop I found on eBay). But the real joy in owning this pistol is firing it at the range. With the design of the trigger system and not having the firing pin safety mechanisms, it is the easiest shooting pistol imaginable. I have had family and friends fire the pistol and every one of them have been on target within the first 2 rounds. It's as close to cheating as you can get. My Colt is flawless, beautifully and faithfully engineered and executed to honor John Browning and everyone who ever held one in their hand in service to our country. What a privilege and joy to own this firearm.

This is the first time that I have ordered a firearm on line. Steven was very helpful and talked me through it, I am quite satisfied with the overall results. The Colt 1911 was in perfect condition.

"PERFECT" my first buy with Buds. I used the lay-a-way plain and everything went as they stated. My Colt 1911 series 70 was flawless! pistol, box and paper work in mint condition. The finish and operation smooth... Also the best price I could find online. I will be back to buy again from Buds. If you want a pre-80's Colt, this is a great one to get "while still available". This pistol is the new 70's series without the finger barrel bushing that was discontinued by Colt. This is just the series I wanted.
Thanks Buds, for a great buy and pistol!

It took a couple of weeks fir it to arrive at my LGS. I understand it's the Holidays, (Merry Christmas) and I know that these guys are busy. That said, the gun is very nice, not a Royal Colt blue by any means, but nicely done. Unpacked it, degreased it, and put on a set of faux-ivory grips with both of my previous military organizations, one on each side of the grips. Looks really nice. I had always wanted the 1911 that I was issued in 1971. Exceot that it's not parkerized, and doesn't rattle, it's mighty close. The arched MSH and short trigger feel great. I will be the range safety officer at our shooting club tomorrow, and if I have the time I intend to give it it's first workout. The trigger is not quite as good as my Kimber Eclipse Ultra, but I can live with it. If not, that's what Cylinder and Slide is for. All in all, I'm quite pleased. I'm giving it a 4 only because it took a while to get it. Buds is great, if I'm looking for a new firearm, I will always go to Buds first.

I had read the previous reviews and had some concerns, but the example I received was flawless! Tight and smooth,Great Trigger! Deep rich beautiful polished blue and the roll marks were straight, legible and evenly well struck. This is a Beautiful Pistol! Highly recommended.
