Default 1911

Of all the 1911, which one would you prefer, and why?

Don't wanna sound Like a snob, but 3 of the 4 1911's I have are Colt(s). (a Combat Commander & 2 GC's). That being said there are a lot of options now. I'm wavering Between a RIA, Metro Arms, and the Taurus for My next 1911 which will be in 9MM., since I don't shoot 45ACP anymore...

There are many good ones out there. Much of the decision making process will come down to what you intend to use it for and who makes a version that fits your needs. For me I like a forged frame and slide, however there are some decent guns that use well made cast frames and extruded slides (RIA, Metro Arms, Armscor, Caspian, etc.)

My two current 1911s are a Springfield Armory that was a collection of parts, with some missing when I bought it. I was able to build it back the way I wanted it. The frame and slide are forged, at military forging facility, then machined and finished here in the US on that particular model. I built it to be a very spartan, practical pistol, much of the inspiratin for the build came form the older MEU (SOC) 1911s before they went the MARSOC route.

So, They are kind of like Legos to me, I don't care about the individual manufacturers as much as the basic specifications of the base pistol.

My other 1911 is a Fusion slide, frame, and barrel that I bought to build as a pistol for service pistol matches, so it had to be in a configuration that fit with the rules. The frame, slide, barrel, and bushig were all fitted at Fusion to be match tight. This is the most accurate centerfire autoloader I own.

Dan Wesson (CZ USA) has a bobtailed commander sized pistol that I would like to get my hands on, for carry.

Okay, if you are talking about money is no object, then Ed Brown.

To understand, you would have to take an Ed Brown and a Colt together to a range session.

it all depends on how much a person has to spend.

even some of the less expensive brands and models of 1911's are great pistols fr the money.

of the best all around brand, i might have to say Springield Armory.
