Well I hope it's not my bad influence!
If you do not want to spend as much then consider a STI Trojan, which is also a traditional styled 1911. My God, those Trojans are sweet shooters right out of the box. The triggers are like snapping a piece of dried, uncooked, spaghetti. Effortless...Pop!
The STI Trojan has an investment cast frame, rather than the costlier forged process of the Lawman frame. Doesn't matter because investment cast (not to be confused with "die cast") is damn strong.
Both are very tuned and accurate pistols right out of the box.
Try to find a bad review of a STI Trojan... very hard to do.
I'm not STI brand loyal. It's just they just happen to manufacture a very good product and just like the trigger actions better than some of the more oft 1911 brands mentioned. Just my personal taste.
