    Go colt. It's the original. There are a lot of good ones S&W Remington Springfield but all around colt is just superior. Combat elite is my next purchase

    For $1k take a close look at the STI Trojan. I'm an STI junkie and my son shoots a Trojan so I've had the chance to shoot it often. I don't think there's a better 1911 on the market at that price. Buttery smooth operation and amazingly accurate. Great gun from a terrific company. Built in Texas and comes with a lifetime warranty on the gun.

    Sig Nightmare is a beauty. That's my next one.

    Although some may shun the used market, I've found some very good deals there.

    The last was a DW Pointman Major in .45ACP for less than $850.

    Any Dan Wesson bought for $1000 or less will blow away the competition, Colt included.

    STI Trojan would be a good choice. Sig Traditional Match Elite is another. Springfield Loaded.

    Colt lwc, 1991 m1911, new agent, defender, gold cup, etc. all can be found at that price with a little patience. Check www.armslist.com. You can set filters to search a specific gun in your specific area.

    I like the S&W EOTech sights and I do very good with this gun but the Ithaca is the one I shoot most. I like the Kensight and the smooth recoil. The gun just feels good in my hand. I have several other 1911's but these two are my favorites.

    How do you like the Ithaca? Don't see many around on the forums. I have thought about getting one, but can't justify the price. That's Baer territory.
