What is the baddest, kick butt 1911R out there?
 
Looking to buy but with so many choices I'm kind of at awe. Like to spend around $1,500 plus whatever I can get for my PT1911 (maybe $200?) on trade. Like to have a rail gun as I never had one but not a must. So far I like the TRP, Tac Ops and TLE II. Other recommendations? Thanks.

Look into dan Wesson,their 1911's are the absolute most gun for that amount of money period.

I have yet to shoot a 1911 (45 cal) that wasn't fun to shoot. The fact that the gun was used in a movie or a video game doesn't make it any more fun to shoot.

The rail may look cool, mean, rad, or whatever.

I just haven't found a practical use for one yet.
Special order holster, ripped jackets from the rail, added bulk...etc.

The rail just is not for me.

A rail is not mandatory but I would like something with some extra features.
I have narrowed it down to either a..

1) Kimber
2) Springfield Armory
3) Sig Sauer 1911

What do you guys think out of those three?

Also does Colt make any tactical type 1911's worth a look? Thanks.

I do not have any experience with the Sig, so I cannot comment.
I do not own a Kimber even though I have had plenty of chances.
I do own a Springer and would recommend.

I have a Springfield Armory TRP. It's a very nice 1911. You will not be disappointed should you choose to buy one.

If your price range is $1500-$1800, you need to rethink your list. Ditch the Kimber and the Sig and any Springer not from their custom shop. Start looking at Les Baer, Dan Wesson, and even Fusion.
