Default Best 1911 for $800-$1000

I've decided that the next gun I want to add to my growing collection is a 1911. I can afford something in the roughly range of roughly 800-1000 dollars. The gun will be primarily for range use, but may be used for home protection as well (assuming I like it better than my 9mm XDM). It will not be a carry gun. What would you recommend?

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I have a colt 1911, and I have a taraus 1911. I want a ruger 1911. I hear great things about the ruger, and its around $700. That would leave some money for lots of ammo for fun with your new pistol.

The CCO is the same receiver (grip) size as the Defender but with a 4.25" Barrel vs the 3".
