    My first 1911 is a SW1911. I'm from Boston so I am very limited to what I can buy (Kimber, Springfield are banned from MA).

    Shop about a half hour away has a few different colts in stock.

    - Colt Government
    - Colt Delta Elite
    - Colt MkIV (Series 80 and 70)
    - Colt Commander

    whats the difference between all these? Just cosmetics?

    Government model has a 5 inch barrel
    Delta Elite is a 10mm caliber
    Series 80 has a firing pin safety the 70 series does not
    Comander has a 4 1/4 inch barrel

    I am sure that some one more knowlegable will chime in soon.
