Default Best 1911 in Cali, under 1000

Now thinking of rounding out my gun collection with a 1911, I live in California and would like recommendations for a good one under 1000. Does anyone know if the Ruger 1911 is legal here?
Thanks in advance!

From me checking the handgun roster I have to say no, but I may be wrong. Just search up, "ca approved hadguns" and the link should appear. I don't know much about 1911's so you'll have to wait for a smarter member to come by.

Ruger SR1911? Not yet, from what I could see.
Check- Colt, Springfield Armory, Kimber, S&W, ARMSCOR Precision, Etc.

How will we know it's time to gather up the pitchforks & torches and start assembling the guillotine on the DC mall?

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!

You can find colts under a grand in California (barley) but the list has almost all Kimbers Remington most the Rock Island/Armscor Sig Colts of coarse almost any of the makers of 1911's are on the list. If for some reason you found one that's not on the list, you can find shops willing to single shot one for you.

It is hard to believe that there are single stack 1911's that are not allowed in Kalifornia. Guess that is why I am glad that I live in Az where you can own and carry what ever you want.
