    The list doesn't include some of the finest 1911 makers out thee today. Where is Les Baer, Wilson Combat, STI, Ed Brown, etc? My favorite is STI.

    I really like my Taurus PT1911AL. I know some of y'all are going to flame me over this, and that's alright, it is an exceptionally accurate gun, I've run more than 2500 rounds through it without ever a FTF or FTE. For the money it's pretty hard to beat.

    ny only 1911 is the one I haven't finished building yet.
    But i've shot a whole bunch of 'em, and if i was buying off the shelf it would be STI in a heartbeat.

    Another vote for Springfield Armory. I've had two & both functioned without any issues and are very accurate.

    Wink Out of box, non custom

    Springfield MilSpec, as good as my custom Brown,
    Colt combat commander beats any of the short 1911s I've tried.
    Springfield GI, my truck gun
    I wouldn't part with any of them.

    By my count...........4. Obsession is the sincerest form of flattery.

    I wish they would go 70 series instead of 80.

    Although I don't own either, from recent handling and discussion with local owners, my belief is that Dan Wesson 1911s are the best quality bang for the buck in production 1911s and that Bob Serva's Fusion Firearms 1911s hold that same distinction among custom 1911s. I'd love to own either

    I've not got to hold or fire a Fusion 1911 but I have used their parts in a few of mine. I'll use theirs before I'll use a few others that's for sure and the people at Fusion are always friendly to deal with. They know their stuff and can give you the advice you need when you are working or building a 1911. I'd really like to get my hands on a full build and see what it's like. I'd say it is as good as a 1911 can get. I'm really liking that 10mm long slide they are making. The pics and specs look and sound fantastic!

    For the money, I think Dan Wesson makes the best value in the ~$1000 range

    Wink Which 1911 do I prefer?

    1. Love my Colt Combat Elite to this day. Mine was the first ones that came out. I had it customized over 20 years ago I used Bar-sto barrel, slide to frame lapped by hand, slide shortened by one inch and installed a one port compensator for carry. Used Kings b/t grip safety, Ed Brown thumb safety, Wilson Hammer/trigger set, Novak combat front/rear sight set and a Smith & Alexander mag well. It digests any type ammo, sad that I can not remember that fine gentleman's name somewhere in Texas that customized my gun. He had a very good price as I can recall. Sometime ago I tried calling back the shop and the man that answered said that they sold the business and that was the end of that. I could not remember the name of the shop. 2. Early made Kimbers. I had a much newer Kimber in 45 , and it was a piece of crap, it was jamomatic and I sold it so quick I wanted no more headache to deal with. 3. Rock Island Tactical with no jams, no fte/ftrb/ftf, the gun is flawless right out of the box and a price tag too that won't break the bank.

    I now remembered the name of the shop in Texas. After thinking and thinking about it last night it came back to me. The name of the shop is Stewart Arms. Does anyone know as to what happened to Stewart Arms? They were somewhere in Texas, about 15 to 20 years ago.

    thanks,

    My favorites are Colts. I own 3 and 1 is my daily carry. I just love the pony on the side. I do tend to be a bit old fashioned and set in my ways.
