S&W 1911s never make the cut in my recommendations. I hate the lawyer talk they put on the sides of the slide. I also don't care for the fish scale serrations. Honestly, they are good guns. I just like a lot of other guns better.

The recoil on a 45 might be a little more than some guys can handle though.
Touché blindshooter!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I thought about getting a standard .45 1911. But I have a lot of 9mm, no .45 ammo and no .45 cleaning supplies. I can handle the recoil just fine, but ATM can't afford all the extra stuff that goes with buying a new caliber handgun.

Squawk, 45 ammo can be found if you want it bad enough. if you can clean a 9mm, you can clean a 45. the brushes are less than $3 at WalMart. that's all you need if you already have the items to clean a 9mm. even if i had to buy an entire new cleaning kit every time i bought a new caliber, i wouldn't let that deter me from buying.

Touché. But I have no .45 ammo and lots of 9mm. Right now, .45 is about .60 a round. Compared to .40 a round. And then the stuff I payed under .30 a round for.

It comes down to what you want, the. 45 1911 is always a good choice but i love my 9mm 1911 no matter what anyone says whether they are right or not. We all have different opinions

nothing wrong with 9mm in a 1911. i just have always owned 1911's in 45. but the truth be known, a 1911 in any caliber is still pretty sweet!

right now i really want one in 38 Super!
