Shooters, I would look into getting a Rock Island Armory 1911. I got mine for $300 brand new. They now have different finish options with the highest running just over $500. Mine is all black parkerized but they have one that's two-tone (satin slide and black frame) and one that's all satin.
I know that sounds cheap but they are good pistols and mine has NEVER jammed with hollow points or FMJ's and I use a wide range of ammo brands (usually what's the cheapest).
