    I just bought a new Springfield Loaded for 800 even. Have 100 rounds through it now, and it's off to a great start. I've also had a fine time shooting a Springfield Range Officer which I rented. New ones are a little harder to find than Loadeds, but both are nice pistols.

    I have 4 1911's 2 sig c-3's one full size sig and a dan wesson heritage. The dan blows every gun I have away! It has the best clean break trigger shoots where you point it. Very nice gun Made here in the USA I got it from nothern firearms on gunbroker $999 free shipping no other fees. Only bad thing is i'm gonna need trigger jobs on all my sigs. Good luck in your search!

    I purchased a new stainless Kimber Pro TLE 2 for $1016.00. With the night sights and 4" barrel, it's now my main carry gun. The Kimber does not have the same barrel bushing as a standard 1911 so take down is a little strange at first.

    1911

    I bought the Remington 1911R1 for less than $800 new and have about 1000 rounds through it with no issues.

    If you can find one, check out Ruger's new SR 1911. The prices are kind of all over the place, but some shops are selling them at a fair price.

    I recently bought one and I'm very impressed with it. I was never much of a Ruger semi-auto fan, until I saw the SR 1911.

    I recently put 50 rds. of a mish mash of old and new ammo, all brands, loads, etc. thru it, and it ate it all.

    I have a couple of S&W's that were in the $700/$800 range that have held up real well. Good luck.

    If you want heritage I make vote 3 for the colt.

    If you want something a little more non traditional my vote is a Sig Sauer 1911. and they have a ton of different 1911 to choose from.

    Colt,they're the standard and used value will be the highest.

    Watch the Remingtons,2 I know of had a strange cut in the front of the frame bridge that will destroy the barrel in short order,and the only way around it is weld and recut the bridge or replace the frame.I haven't heard the outcome yet about what Rem is going to do about it.

    I personally wouldn't buy a Kimber for a few personal reasons,but I would consider a SA since they're quality got better after the early ones.Anything lower than SA would be a base for a build.The Dan Wessons have a good following but I think they're up in Kimber pricing or more.

    Had 3 . 45acp at one time, sold a Glock 21 cause everything is for sale at the right price. Great shooter though right of the box !
    Also out was my Colt 1991A1 (compact though).
    Nowadays just my Para O P-14 , that's 14 bangs for your buck...

    I have five 1911's. The cheapest is my SIG C3 and it's my favorite of the bunch.

    Has anyone heard anything about, owns, or shot Colt's model called "The Rail Gun"? If so what is your opinion?

    Thanks

    I haven't heard anything bad about them. If I were looking for another railed 1911 in that cost range, that would probably the the one I'd get.

    It's got a national match barrel, decent sights, good beaver tail safety.

    My one gripe on Colts is that they are too edgy from the factory in some areas and could use a good de-horn.

    Viper - I just bought a C3 and it's great. Have you had any problems with spent casings having a small v shaped crease in the opening? Thanks.
