You need to be model specific.

I take exception to that statement.

I have the 1911 R1 GI and it is one solid $600 entry level 1911.

Um is Kimber an option? I prefer the Springfield on a serious note.

I'd go with the Springer. I bought the R1 as a spec gun. Not sure it's going to appreciate much. Hindsight, I think the SA GI would have been a better choice.
