Go with a rock island armory. They have VERY VERY VERY good 1911's. I think, I may be wrong, they have a sub compact version that is very sleek!

The truth of the matter is, I don't know of a really bad 1911. The people I know who have Rock Islands tell me that they are good guns. I suspect the two thousand dollar 1911s are pretty good too, but I don't own one.

I have had a Springfield since the early 1990s and it is an outstanding gun after unknown thousands, probably close to 10,000, rounds down the tube. (I don't keep count) I have yet to replace any part except for the grips. The finish is about gone from carrying it, but that just gives it character. I probably need to replace the barrel from wear, but it still keeps on paper at combat range, so I don't worry about it.

The Glock 1911 is awesome, I've never fired a better striker-action 1911 before. Everyone should try one.
