I have several 1911s but unfortunately only a few are in that price range.
However, I picked up Ruger SR1911 a few months ago and I have next to no complaints. The trigger was a little heavy for my tastes out of the box at 5.25 pounds (blah!) and the thumb safety disengaged a bit too easily. Other than that, it has been a great shooter.
Nit-picking the SR1911....the feed ramp needed a bit of polishing (if it isn't a mirror, it isn't good enough), some of the internal contact surfaces needed a bit of polishing, the thumb safety has a bit too much of a gap between the edge of the extended lever and the frame (and it doesn't have quite as pleasing of a contour as an Ed Brown tactical extended thumb safety), the detent cut in the thumb safety had to be deepened a little to keep the thumb safety from getting accidentally clicked off during concealed carry (cocked an unlocked is a little spooky), trigger was a bit stiff out of the box but was easily tuned down to a 4.0 consistent pull)...
MIM. I don't trust it regardless of who makes it. Good example? Front sights on the Ruger 1911 Commanders - they are shearing off all over the place - they are MIM. MIM is for cost reduction, not quality improvement - the two rarely go hand in hand. Cost reduction has no place on a pistol intended for self defense if It has the potential to reduce reliability one iota. In my experience with MIM parts, the mere suggestion they present a risk to reliability of only one iota is nothing less than exceptionally wishful thinking.
Overall the Ruger SR1911 is a fairly solid pistol and certainly exceptional for the price but it is considerably better with a bit of polishing and a few minor part replacements. I tend to carry my slightly tweaked Ruger almost as much as my custom Colt Commander...but to some degree, that might be because the idea of a $3000+ custom pistol spending even a day in an evidence locker bothers me.
Just my opinion after 35+ years of firearms - take or leave as you please.
