I vote for Remington. I just got one, and I am impressed with the quality. I haven't had time to put a few rounds down range yet, but every review I've seen/read said that they are extremely reliable (they can have problems with some hollow points like most 1911s do though). There are also know to be very accurate. The gun has zero rattle to it whatsoever, the fit and finish is fantastic (not sure exactly what the finish is, but it makes the gun look blued, and is very nice), and the trigger on it is NICE.

Is that a 70s series? Careful and treat it like glass cause if it drops there's going to be a boom.

Its an 80 series, so it won't go off if it's dropped. (NOT something I planned on doing anyways. )

Plus, from what I've read, it seems that the 70 series 1911 aren't very likely to go off either. It's possible, but not very likely. They have to hit the ground in the right way, and with the right force for them to go off.

I know Ruger went with the 70's style, but with a titanium firing pin. There just isn't enough mass in the firing pin to build the required inertia for an accidental discharge. I suppose maybe if you dropped from 6,000 feet...

Love my Kimber CDP like no other..

If I were to purchase another 1911 on my current budget a Colt it would be, a Springfield behind that..
If $$$ were no object, a Wilson Combat would top my list hands down..

I've read nothing but good reviews on the Para GI Expert & it's under $600.

I've got a Colt, a Ruger, and a Springfield. I can't say that one is any better than the other outside of the Ruger just feeling better.
