I would take a hard look at the STI and the RIA, i just handled a double stack STI a few days ago and it was really nice.

IMHO, the only double stack I would consider (a 1911/JMBrowning) would be the Hi-Power.

I know, I know, it's not a 1911 but its the only double-stack steel gun I will carry.

I guess I should say that my budget is between $400-$600. I found a Regent R200s for $508, and an American classic for like $420 neither are double stack though..

I fugure a double stack !911 would be very popular, so why arnt there very many out there??

The 1911 wasn't designed that way...thats pretty much it. Para probably went through engineering hell to get it to work right. From what I've seen. Para is still probably your best bet for quality and price but I haven't seen any double stacks in the range your'e talking about.

There are two handguns that i can never get enough of seeing, the 1911 and browning hi-power. Eye candy for the sole

Keep an eye on budsgunshop.com trade ins. They had a high cap LDA Para last week for $499.00 used w/one mag its gone now but keep checking as that inventory turns over fast. Check every day to keep on top of the special deals like that one.

I also do not see double stack 1911's for sale in that price range often. My guess is that those who buy them enjoy them so much they keep them. From what I've seen the market is fairly small for the double stack.
