Hey guys birthday is still a few months away but I already started looking for my own present. I want a higher end 1911 because I had to sell my RIA tactical a while back to pay some bills. I won't be able to carry on campus so it will mostly be a range gun so full size is what I decided. My budget is around 1k so what do you guys recommend? I liked the kimber cutom II and springfield loaded but is there anything else I'm overlooking and that I should consider? and also what are the advantages/disadvantage of an aluminum frame? based on your feedback I'll try as many of them out as I can and decide. I know you 1911 guys will be here shortly to set me straight!
