DPris has it correct.

I never understood why Reed Knight just did not introduce the original design after Colt let it go. Perhaps there would have been legal issues, or perhaps he simply did not...

If it runs, then no. Excellent pistol. Given pistol quality at Colt the last few years, it will likely run fine.

I look forward to Colt's introduction of a polymer 9mm styled after the Glock. That said, it better be right, especially after the Colt 2000 debacle.

A medium frame .357? Not so much, unless it...

Nothing. They are great pistols. After searching the Colt catalog, it is unclear to me what any of the other models do better than the basic 1911, as expressed in the Colt lineup as the 1991.

I agree. The report in question is obviously company white wash taken "hook, line, and sinker." If you want a Colt, best buy one now.

Without question, no Remington junk with that trigger system of theirs.

My first choice is always a Colt LE6920. Since you specify a longer barrel, I recommend the Colt AR15A4.

The two pictures by the OP show scratches that would not have bothered me in the least.

I have had many Colts over the years with loose grip safeties. Not one of them failed to work as intended. I think you are okay, but a simple armorer's test will tell.
