Default CHEAP .45s

I have recently been looking into the future and thinking about a cheaper 45 acp. Ive been looking around and have been surprised with my findings. Rock Island Armory 1911 45 $400-500, Interstate arms 1911 45 $350-450, American classic by metro arms 1911 45 $400-500, and Taurus 24/7 OSS 45 $325 (WOW). Any insight on any of these guns. Ive heard not much good about polymer framed taurus's. Im really interested in the 24/7 though. I just wonder how good these guns are.

If you are looking for an inexpensive .45 you can find a Ruger P90 for about $275.

If you are looking for a good inexpensive 1911 .45, I don't think you could go wrong with a Rock Island.

Nothing wrong with that 24/7.

Better than a Sigma or Ruger P series anyday

I had a Thompson Auto-Ordinace 1911 that was a pretty good shooter other than the front sight flying out of it cause they didnt peen it over.

While I've never owned a Taurus, most of what I've heard about the 24/7 lineup has been really positive. If they're reliable, it's tough to beat that price.

I went with the XD myself. Picked up a used XD45 service with four mags, the full XD kit, and a Supertuck for $460...all in barely used condition.

I've owned all three. The Sigma & Ruger P89 were rock solid reliable. The bought new Taurus 24/7 Pro failed in the first week and it took Taurus 13 weeks to repair it. I sold it at a loss. These are facts not opinions...

Then your experience has been different than mine.

Three 1911's and one other on comparo. Are you looking at caliber or platform? Of those 1911's offered, I would rather go with the Rock Island. The Phillipines has (had) two 1911 manufacturers, and RIA gets the nod better than the other.
