Guess you could say I'm just about the grand ole man of the forums. 300 posts, you could say things are starting to get pretty serious! Anyway. I decided to make my 300th post thusly: So I've never shot a 1911. I know, I know, for shaaaaame. Anyway, I want to think about getting one in the future if I rent and like it. I'm sure I will. That being said, I now there are a million entry level 1911s out here. I would like to hear your guys' experiences with the lets say $600 or less ones. Especially the bad experiences. I kinda like the idea of a pretty plain Jane 1911. Like what used to be issued. But I'm open to such luxuries as adjustable sights, fiber optic / night sights, extended beaver tails, etc. I've done a lot of reading here and elsewhere. This thread is MOSTLY about getting #300 in on my own terms.
