cheap but good quality 1911
 
I'm looking to buy my first 1911 but I don't wanna break the bank. I want something under 300$ if possible but all suggestions are appreciated

I dont think there are any new 1911's out there for $300 or less.

cheap but good quality is an oxymoron.

There are several inexpensive (400 to 500$) but good quality 1911's out there.

Peruse this section for many testimonials of these inexpensive 1911's.

Yes I meant inexpensive but this is a firearms forum not a good grammar forum. Any specific examples, manufacturers etc?

cheap is much different than inexpensive. probably the least inexpensive decent quality 1911 is going to be at least in the $500-600 range.

check out Rock Island Armory, MetroArms American Classic, Armcors High Standard, and Regent Arms. might find a decent used one, but more than likely even these will run in the $450-500 range if the seller knows about 1911's.

Has anybody tried the ruger sr1911?

Have not shot it but I got a good look and was able to handle two the other day. Very nice gun. I can see what all the fuss is about. We auctioned one and raffled one at our FNRA dinner on the 18th. They are in the $700 range. The one we auctioned went with the Ruger knife for just under $1000. It was donated by a local dealer.
