Default Lookin at gettin a 1911

Hats a good average price for a 1911? I'm looking at something full size with a rail but a rail
Is not that big of a deal. What the price ranges/ manufactures?

Asking that question is like asking "I am going to buy a car." I would like back doors, but not a biggie if it doesn't have back doors... Can you tell me what a good price is for that?

Not trying to cynical, just realistic.

it really depends on your budget for buying one. less than $500 or more than $1500. lots of differences in features and quality in comparison to price. what is your intended use of the pistol? CCW, target shooting, HD, casual shooting/plinking. as this will be a big factor in which one to choose.

read over the sticky Canebrake wrote on choosing a first 1911. lots of good information and will help us help you make an informed decision on your first one.

Price ranges I know of are $400-$4000. There is a great write up just can't remember the link... Comes down to your budget and what you really want. As stated above about the cars and doors...

It's hard to answer your question flat out because there are so many variables.The price will depend on what features you would like and quality of build. Springfield has nicely priced 1911s but so does sig and colt if you shop around. IMO, don't just settle. If You know what you want get that and shell out the extra cash otherwise you will end up unhappy with your purchase.

One of the surprising finds was the Rock Island I shot a couple of weeks ago. Once you get past the ugly stock grips that you will change anyway, this 1911 shot smooth, reliably and pretty damn accurate.

This will definitely be in your price range new, with a little left over to change the grips and some of that .45's to practice with.

Very true
Don't let homely grip panels & kind of crapy parkerized finish put you off a helluva buy- Those little things can be changed & rubbed out
