So far the Tisas ones have had a lot of good remarks. I've yet to fire mine, but it seems solid out of the box. Suppose to be very reliable

All of them, depending on who you talk to.

+1 for SIG. They make a great 1911, in fact they make about 29 different variations on the platform. Worth the $$ IMO.

To me any 1911 that is thought out made and can be as accurate as the person aiming it is great,45acp stopping power next to a shotgun all the rest are deterrents to me

Most 1911's these days are made with modern manufacturing processes and pretty reliable. The biggest problem is often that any given 1911 may be finicky with some magazines.

- Use good mags. You may even need to modify lip of the magazine, spring tension, and avoid cheap followers.
- Lean towards hard ball, or FMJ ammo (some 1911's hate HP's).
- If you have a ramped barrel, polish it.

I own a STI Trojan and a Sig Stainless Carry. Both are rock solid reliable. I carry the Sig the most simply because a Commander size conceals a little bit easier than the 5" STI.

Truth is when I put my right foot onto the footboard on my Electroglide the Sig never pokes the top of my thigh (I carry in a Galco King Tuk IWB) and occasionally the STI does.

At least that's how I justified the Sig purchase to myself. Really, I just wanted another 1911.

Now I'm looking into a 9mm 1911 and narrowed it down to either the Dan Wesson Guardian or the STI Lawman 4.0.

A well built 1911 is reliable which is why they have been around so long and maintain such a huge level of loyalty. Also in my safe is a Sig P226 & P239. Both reliable and the 226 has/is being carried by Seal teams....that's reliable. I will carry one of my 1911's without any worries and I am more accurate with a 1911 than any other pistol I have tried or carried.

Did I mention that 1911's are addicting?

JMHO & YMMV.

Very much so, after my first 1911 I sold my Glock and wanted nothing but 1911s. I agree with you on the accuracy aspect. I've shot a Glock, Beretta, keltec, Rossi, and my 1911s and I had the best accuracy with my 1911s. With all of them I had a "1" group at 25 yards. The melted I didn't even hit paper the first 4 shots. The Glock was inconsistent, the Rossi was dead on but the sheer power of it scared me and the Beretta was about the same as the Glock.
