Ok, Here is my .02 worth. I as looking for a 1911 myself. I looked at the Kember and OMG lots of money for that one. Then I looked at the Taurus PT 1911 and it was nice. A friend told me about a 1911 he shoots and it is a Rock Island. Well, I looked at the same gun frame in different name and it is the High Standard 1911. My thinking it's a good 1911 starter gun. It has had way more good reviews than bad. I get one. It is only a few days old and I have not shoot it yet, but I will Sunday. The HS 1911 was only $350.00. That is better than $1500.00 and up. I do know you get what you pay for, but it seems to be a good handgun. Warranty issue's you can send it to the manufacturer in the states.

Default best 1911A1 for the $?

Calvin/All


Ron L here = SERESURPLUS


I have bought a Rock Island 1911A1 45 out of the shotgun news from Sarco, it's a full size gun, not a lot of the Commander and Compact Guns still for sale, with my dealer add on and shipping costs, I have like 425-450 in mine brand new in box! It's a great shooter, 100% interchangable with all GI 1911A1 parts and feeds hollow point ammo, right out of the box! This same gun is sold under the Armscorp Name as a tactical model with better sites and a few extra frills, about 100$ more? The same reciever and slide are sold as many other 45s out there, hard to go wrong for the $!

Default Wilson Combat CQB

My CQB is easily the most expensive handgun I have ever bought. You can get a Kimber or Springfield with the same specs on paper for less than half the price, but it's not in the same class as the CQB. I have a Springfield TRP, and it's a very good gun. Accurate, good trigger, good fit, good this and good that. If good is all you want, then get a TRP, you'll have a good gun.
The Wilson Combat CQB is light years beyond any Springfield Armory, Colt, Kimber, S&W, or whoever is your pet company. Flawless in fit, finish, and function. Some will claim that a custom gun won't run well. That you won't be able to shoot most ammo's without it jamming. Not true. My CQB is no harder to please than the TRP or my old Colt military 1911 (1918 manufacture).
Do yourself a favor, clean out the gun safe, get rid of some of the stuff you have bought just because the price was right. Get yourself at least one gun that is world class. Don't always settle for "good" because it is cheaper.

Default My 2 cents

The last 1911a1 I picked up was a Auto Ordnance WWII parkerized model rollmarked:

Model 1911a1 US ARMY

with lanyard loop, vertical slide serrations, brown plastic grips, checkered hammer and safety, and arched mainspring housing.

A true mil-spec GI 45 auto...the kind you can drop in the sand...pick up and fire...the AK of 45's

Cost: $430...out the gun show door...PA sales tax included

Here's a pic...

hello i was just looking around some of the gun sites and came across this thread ..ARE YOU GUYS CRAZY! the springfield frame though made in brazil is made a lot better. it not about just the frame its about all the parts and how well they fit together . i have worked in a gun shop for the last 10 yrs and have seen all the guns you are talking about . i carry the springfield armory TRP at the range that i now work at and have shot all of thoes guns but the springfield Loaded is buy far the best for the money due to the fit and the quality of the parts ...taurus is good for the instructor because with a life time guarintee you can send it back as many times as you need and there is no need to buy another gun .... but do you want to rely on somthing that needs to be replaced several times....we have several 1911s at the range
and have had problems with only the cheaper weapons.. and these are weapons that are shot all day long ... springfields are a little more but well worth the extra money..
this is only my humble opinion thanks for listening

Dude, I think you are missing the point of the thread. He wasn't asking for the most expensive 1911 out there. My $400 Rock Island doesn't jam either, even with lead semi-wadcutters. It is also a very accurate weapon. Unless you are in some sort of competition, I can't see spending 6 times the money to get the Wilson Combat gun. At best, I bet it only shoots groups about an inch or inch and a half less than my RIA. Don't get me wrong, if you can afford such guns, great. If I spent that kind of money on a gun, I wouldn't be able to buy another for a few years.
