Check out budsgunshop.com under the 1911's category. You're probably not going to get a .45 for that cheap. Maybe a .22LR model. There are some affordable .45's for a pinch more than you're asking about, but the quality level may leave something to be desired.

For that price I'd probably just get the Taurus PT92. Not a 1911 but much higher quality and better features than the gun indicated. Actually better than the 92FS (surprising coming from Taurus)

Has anybody had experience with an STI 1911? Specifically the spartan V. It looks like an awesome gun for a decent price around 700$ msrp

The Spartan line is made in the phillipeans. The benefit is you still get the STI customer service.

The STI Spartan line (III, IV, V) frame, slide and barrel are manufactured by Armscor (Phillipines) on a separate line built to STI specifications. All the internal parts are made by STI and the gun is assembled by Armscor. Then the gun is shipped to Georgetown, TX for quality control and distribution. All warranty work (if needed) is done by STI. A Spartan purchase is supported like any STI product; the customer would never notice a difference. Additionally, STI customer service is of the best in the industry.

I got a Spartan V 9MM about 4 months ago and it has been 100% reliable after 500+ rounds, accurate and darn fun to shoot.

So would a ria officers 1911 for 402$ plus ffl fee be a good deal?

Yes, that's a good price but do you really want a 1911 mouse gun?

If you have big hands, the Officers Model will get lost. And......1911 subcompacts do not shoot like their bigger brothers.

The Officers Model is not a good choice for one's first 1911.
