    A Colt .45 ACP is the next gun to get on my firearms bucket list... what is the difference between a 1911 and a 1991?

    My buddy Joe has an ORM version of the Officer's model (3 1/2") and I'd post the picture of the target if I still had it, but at 20 feet I put five rounds in the same hole. The sixth round was barely off by about a half inch. I should really start keeping pictures of my targets. I'm beginning to get a lot better with the 1911. It could have been the ammo too. I used this PMC 230gr FMJ stuff the range had. NIB factory ammo. Usually I run Winchester 230gr FMJ.

    If the 1911 is your choice, you don't necessarily have to get a Colt either. There are many alternative which offer more options at a better cost. Kimber, Springfield, Taurus, Rock Island Armory, ATI, the STI Spartan 9, Smith & Wesson, Citadel. I've owned a Rock Island and currently own a Springfield. Both are great 1911s.

    Sorry, I just had to say it.

    There is no difference, as shown in hoggers quote. I think it was just a marketing ploy by Colt. I have Rock Island, Taurus, and Citadel 1911's and they are all very good alternatives to Colt at a fraction of the price.
