If $1000 dollars is your limit I would hold off and save $200 more and buy the Springfield Armory TRP. You won't regret the purchase. Here is mine.

I picked up a NIB Stainless Colt Gold Cup Trophy for less than $1000 on GunBroker. Was right at $1000 with shipping and transfer.

Beautiful gun. I might have to plan a trip down to Key West to have a beer with you and shoot that puppy.

I got a Kimber for light sale that is well under $1000 if you are interested.

Look at the used market in your area. With the economy the way it is, there are deals out there if you are willing to make a few calls and do a bit of driving.
