    Caleb Giddings' 1911 Ratings List

    123
    A good, quick read over some popular 1911s.

    My experiences mirror pretty much everything he says in the piece. If your'e shopping for a new 1911 it's worth taking the 10 minutes or so to read.

    Our 1911 rating system here at Gun Nuts has a considerable amount of data fed into it from shooting competition and taking classes over the years. Thanks to that, I can actually compile a fairly comprehensive list of 1911s and the order in which we generally recommend them to our readers. But instead of providing a group of tiers, Iím instead going to list major 1911 brands in no particular order with our combined observations and recommendations for them. If I miss a manufacturing that youíre wondering about, let me know in the comments.

    I read exactly what I wanted to hear so I am glad. Got my eyes set on a 1911 for me and the girlfriend and the info on that made me feel more at ease before the big purchase.

    Yep....that's about how I would list them...except Ruger 1911's are excellent and so are Dan Wessons. I would buy either over Les Baer, Wilson or the other high end pricey guns.

    Oh just buy a G21 or a USP45. If you're spending 2 grand on a 1911, buy a Mark 23 instead.

    So Pa Wilson has stepped down and Boy Wilson (the knife maker) is running the show. You don't say!
