Is $800-1000 your TOTAL budget, or just for the gun? Don't forget the break-in ammo and some extras like Tripp magazines and a holster! All of that could easily get to $200 or more.

I think that is what draws me to it the most. Im a big fan of "officer" grips with the "full" barrel.

For 800-1000 budget, I'd say grab a Springfield armory loaded model 1911. VERY well made and cool options. Also less than 1000

as far as I know, it comes in 9mm, .38S, .40SW, and .45

You can get 6" versions in 9mm and .45

Colt or SA hands down, IMO.

Hey bro, I got a Colt 1991 just like the one Cane showed you. It is a great 1911 for a little over $800. It has NEVER failed in any way. Good for carry if you ever needed to plus you will have some money left over for ammo and a holster. Have a good day, Ed
