Check out any of these and you will more than happy with your purchase. From owning one of these you can then decide what you like in the 1911 platform. You may not even like it. Either way you end up with a good pistol that will serve you well and all have a lifetime warranty. Something a gun maker must provide or don't buy the gun. I own all 3 and haven't a single problem.

Here's one in 9mm that is cheaper to shoot.

They don't. They just import them. The finish on the metro arms guns is way better than the RIA guns. Both for the money are great guns though.

A couple of MAs guns. Serial #s are 00056 and 00075. I have some of the 1st ever sold in this country. They run with anything I own and that is more than most. In fact my carry gun is one of them at the moment.

Tisas i believe is Turkish and the parent company of Girsan, of which i happen to own a Girsan MC1911HC Gen 1 and it is a very nice introductory pistol in the 1911 platform. Mine was a Mil. Spec version but they do offer them now as a Gen 2 with the skeletonized hammer, trigger, beavertail grip safety and adjustable sights. Below are before and after pics of mine which i added the trigger, hammer, beavertail, sights and grips. In all i have about $800 bucks in it now but its mine and my knowledge of 1911s is greater for it. Yes i would recommend one for a sub $500 1911 and some can be had for less than $400

Although the first pic does have the new sights on it, it came with mil spec sights. Which were ok but on dark targets it was difficult to get a good sight picture.

I have a Ruger myself, but I hear great things about Rock Island's in that price range.
