1911
 
Ok I'm new to this post but I really wanna get a 1911. I was thinking of either a Springfield or a Remington. What do you guys think?

Either way, you are good to go. I'd take the springer as they have a great CS reputation. Get the mil-spec if you go springer. I really like the finish on the r1 though.

Both are good choices however I would lean towards the Springfield

Not to sound silly but is there a difference in parkerized or stainless.

Yes. Stainless does not require a rust preventative as it will not rust easily. The 4100 steel (not stainless) needs to be parkerized, blued or coated to prevent rust. BTW, welcome to the forum!

Yes there is a major difference. A parked finish is an applied finish like painting. SS is SS steel polished to a high gloss.

Parked.

OMG-------

If you can swing it get the Springer-
If not the Remmie will certainly be a good choice too ---

Parkerizing is a method of building up a crystaline structure on the surface of the metal through using a phosphoric acid bath. It is kind of a controlled rusting / chemical reaction. The crystaline structure then works to trap oil and hold it on the metal to protect it.

Stainless steel is a different alloy than carbon steel.
