I had a Springfield 1911 a few years back and was in a pinch for cash so I let it go. Now I find myself browsing gunbroker looking at 1911's again, but need some recommendations. With all the different models out there it's hard to decide where to draw the line! A good mix between quality and value (to me) would be a Springfield Champion because it comes with Novak sights and a ambi-safety for us lefties. I also see the Rock Islands, American Tacticals and others out there for allot less. More of these are missing the ambi-safety but do have decent sights on them. I'm looking for something in the commander or champion 4" size. I don't want another 5". Any experienced thoughts for me? I want to shoot the darn thing, so it's got to be reliable. Thanks in advance!
