Plenty of good choices out there. I have an STI Ranger in .45 and have been very happy. Reasonably priced at around $1100, nothing flashy just a reliable workhorse. Like all STI pistols it's tight fitting, smooth, and very accurate, with an excellent trigger. The boys down in Georgetown, TX. makes some fine 1911s. The Ranger is worth consideration.
