Pt1911 is a good gun. Gets my vote Taurus makes a good gun for the money.

For the $700 range, i would say SA, Ruger SR1911, and Remington 1911.

Can't be! Two other people who like their PT1911? I as well have had nothing but positive things to say about mine.

What do you plan to use it for?
Target? SD? Plinking? Competition?

There is a plethora of 1911 framed handguns that can meet you needs.

But a little more info would be nice.

I have a SS PT1911 it has many custom features and it has been 100% reliable.
Great gun at a good price.

Metroarms American Classic II is a excellent entry level 1911. 800 plus rounds and no problems.

I like Colt or Springfields as a firearm to customize and add parts later.

Some of the ones mentioned are not to the true 1911 specs and require too much additional work.

Can you offer any real data concerning the ones mentioned, to backup your conjecture ? instead of spreading around erroneous information.

shoot safe, shoot straight, and have fun

Earlier RIAs and Armscorp had problems with grips and grip screws.
Charles Daly (Another from the PI) would not accept a Colt slide release.

The differences are small, but increase the work needed.

Get a copy of Kuhnhausen's books, grab your micrometer, and measure.

This is based on my experience, not conjecture.
