    From what I've heard you can't go wrong with a springfield 1911,and if by some odd chance you do... They will jump through hoops to make it right. The only thing I've read about sti spartan was a pretty positive review

    All are excellent choices. I've owned a mil-spec springer-great 1911. Flawless. I like the Sti but the giant SPARTAN on the side draws me away and I've shot a range officer. All good choices sir. If I had to pick....range officer out of the 3

    If your gunna get a 1911 do it right and get a colt. So your wanting a springfield or spartan, which run about a grand. Go with a cold cup trophy, this are flawless. Heres a pic...these run around $1500, but go to gun buying club. Com and you can get it for $863. Tell em Dennis sent me

    Be careful what you post in public and how you word it. What you are describing here is an illegal transaction known as a straw purchase. Being under 21 it is illegal for you to purchase a handgun. Knowingly having a parent purchase a gun for you using your money is a felony. Now if your Dad were to buy the gun and give it to you as a gift, that's a different story...catch my drift?

    BTW, the SA Range Officer is a really nice 1911 if you can afford it. Street price is around $800-$900

    1911

    I love my Range Officer. The mil spec will cost you a little less (600 vs 800) and is a great entry level 1911 which will give you years of service.

    Springfield has GREAT customer service as well.

    My $.02;)

    Have you looked at Rock Island Armory 1911's? They are a very well made 1911 for the price. Around $400 depending on what you get. But remember as a minor you and your parents are going to have to read and understand the laws concerning a minor and having a handgun. Would hate to hear about you getting into some major trouble with the law that would or could cause you both to lose you gun rights.
