depends on your budget. many great choices in 45 depending on how much you want to spend. RIA and American Classic if you want a decent 1911 without spending an arm or a leg. also check out Ruger and Remington or Springfield Armory. also check out the original, Colt.
just read some of Cane's stickies on choosing your first 1911. lots of good information for someone new to the 1911 platform. read it and reread it again.
