I just picked up my Kimber HDII for $780. You could do that and buy some ammo.

I just saw the poll.....Sigma? SIGMA?...lol, j/k

After playing around with many of the 1911's at the SHOT Show, all I can say was the Nighthawk's fit, finish, and trigger were miles above the rest......I would save your pennies until you can get one (new or used, but good luck finding a used one, I imagine once someone has one they don't get rid of it).

If you're an instant gratification type of guy, all those others are ok.

I just had the $1200.00 and it ended up turning into a Colt Rail Gun.

Order a kimber solo and a remingtom 1911 R1......oh wait. I already did that. Well if I had another $1400 I would order a colt. But I don't. :-(

Dan, I have a large pile of Colts and other 1911s. I have been thinking about getting another STI and the $1200 budget would make that happen. The STI with the full length dust cover has me interested.

I'm thinking about the "Rangemaster". Played with it at SHOT a couple of years ago and loved the extra weight up front.

It is pretty cool. I think with the trigger guard rounded off and a short trigger installed it would be a very cool pistol.
