Remington & Ruger have 1911's in the $700-$800 range. An STI Spartan can be picked up between $700 and $800.

Springfield Armory 1911's start in the $600's.

The Spartan is set up well and is an excellent option.

I like my xdm in 40 cal large capacity mags decent priced ammo and it's a lot of fun to shoot and always goes bang without a problem. No problems so far. I also like my springfield GI 1911 in 45 acp great feel and alot of fun to shoot I love everything about it.

play the victim, be the victim

Another vote for the XD45 here; mine has been absolutely reliable. SA has newer models out now, so the XD45 might be a better deal. 13+1 could be helpful in the really bad situations.

I think 1911's are too pricey IMO, although they make some sweet looking pieces. I mean there are some affordable 1911's out there but then you have that "hit or miss" factor. It seems that the god ones start at least a grand or better. Sine you like the .45 round, look at the G21,G30 or the XDM'S. FNP make some cool .45's too just dont know much about them; all four you can find in that price range your looking for.

Glocks have alot of issues also. Most good 1911s arent a grand up. The really good ones are a grand up admitedly. But not everyone likes the same thing or can afford the great things like colts
