Many years ago I owned a stainless steel series 80 Colt Officer's Model 45 ACP that I gave to my father-in-law. For my small hands and size, this was among the most comfortable handguns to carry and use I have owned. The only comparable revolver, for me, are Freedom Arms' Model 97s (45 Colt) with 4.25- and 5.5-inch barrels. With my custom-designed belt rigs, my 97s are a delight.

I think I want to acquire another 45 ACP M1911-pattern pistol with the following features:

1. Series 80, or other, firing pin block (a deal-breaker);

2. Stainless steel components, excepting frame;

3. Frame can be single- or double-stack pattern so long as grip frame w/grips remains essentially standard M1911 size;

4. Prefer integral plunger tube housing, but this is not a deal-breaker;

5. Frame can be stainless steel or comparably durable alloy or plastic. I am not enthusiastic about aluminum;

6. Barrel length and grip frame height are not issues.

Please identify any M1911-pattern pistol that you believe meets my wants.

I just read something on the new Remington 1911 that mentioned in passing that it's trigger was based on the Series 80 so I think it has a block as well.
