    I have the Springfield 1911-A1 NM made somewhere in the mid 1980s that is absolutely fantastic. I had a Kimber Royal ($850+) that I couldn't get grouping smaller then a salad plate but for $400 dollars the Springfield tears a single hole (8rds) the size of a golf ball at 25' feet and probably would do better if I practice more with it. I've got it configured like the original 1911 (not the 1911-A1) with the flat/smooth mainspring housing (should have gotten the one with the lanyard), the small checkered thumb safety and the short spur grip safety. Thought about customizing it but hey! If it's not broke don't screw with it, right.

    That's some great advice. Hard to beat a Colt 1911.

    That depends. If you plan on selling it sometime down the road, a older 70 series (or before) would be a great investment. But like most investment firearms the more you shoot it, putting wear on parts and finish, the less the pistol will be worth. In addition you'll pay top dollar to get a shooter that other less expensive 1911s could fill the bill with equal ease. So I guess it comes down to whether or not you want a "Safe Queen" that you'll be afraid of taking to the range for fear of reducing your investment or a "Workhorse" that you can take to the range shoot the crap out of it.

    Ruger SR 1911, 1000 rounds and not one problem, go on ruger site and study the build process and quality. I paid $626. for mine.

    Only one 1911..

    +1 on the Ruger. Mine shares carry duty with my CZ 75 Compact.

    At it's price point, the Ruger can't be beat for quality, fit and finish. It's got all the things you need like a smooth trigger, good sights, non-ambi safety, flat MSH, etc.

    Picked mine up for $599.
