What's the best 1911 for under $1000
I already own a Sig Sauer scorpion 1911 and love it.. now looking to get my 2nd 1911. I like all the bells and whistles...must be full size and stainless.I have $1000 to spend. The one i'm really considering is a Kimber sts target 2..l have shot it and love it. but before I buy I would like some input..

I have the Remington 1911 RI with stainless steel upper and walnut grips, it went for 900 or so. But i am very pleased with its accuracy and handling of the pistol.

Right now Palmetto State Armory has ridiculous deals on 1911 s don't know nothing about them though. like $400

I like the Ruger SR 1911. Rock Island Armory gets great reviews. They only run about 4-5 hundred. Plenty of $$$ left for ammo.

I haven't heard of Palmetto state armory but I'll look them up...The R1 is the other one I was considering but it's more of a old school plain Jane type of 1911....I like the more modern tactical type

Palmetto State Armory is a great outfit to do business with a lot of great deals a lot of us members go there.
There was a rumor that they were going to start building their own 1911 s in house. they got an old employee from a reputable builder. Can't remember the exact details on that transaction but I do remember reading that on one of the forms I visit.
If you've never check that website out that is a must

I have the Ruger SR1911 and just picked up the Kimber Custom Target II. They are both very nice pistols. The Kimber is very tight in comparison but they both shoot well. For the price the Ruger can't be beat.

I have three 45 ACP 1911s, Colt, RI, Tisa,

Colt and Rock Island are outstanding.

But if I was in your place, with $1000, I would go Springfield Range Officer.
Fantastic gun and ready for competition shooting right out of the box.

$738 at Buds.

A friend of mine has a springfield range officer... I haven't even seen it yet... but he swears by it.. I just didn't think it was in my price range...I'm Going to have look it up..

The Range Officer is Springfield's entry level target gun. It's on par with the Sig Target and the Kimber Custom Target. Just a matter if which brand you like. I was originally leaning towards a Sig based on reviews but felt a little funny buying a 1911 from a German company. They are very nice though.
