    Colt

    Tell him to get a Colt and don't look back.I think the Colts that are made now are the best they have ever been.I have not seen any of the problems with Colts that I have seen posted on the internet.I guess I have just been lucky.

    I just bought one. I haven't put enough rounds through it to comment on it's reliability, but it feels and shoots great. I have been looking for a poor man's bullseye gun and I think I found it. About the only thing I can think of that it needs is a Bomar or similar rear sight.

    I'm a forever Ruger fan so I fully expect their new 1911 will be a strong contender for the "best" in the mid-priced
    range, and probably even among more expensive products. The suggested retail is $799, I don't know how
    available they are yet, or what local prices might be. There's a positive review at Gunblast.com listed as
    Ruger SR1911 45 ACP Semi-Auto Pistol and I'm looking forward to adding this one to my armory.

    For a range gun under $800, it's tough to beat the Springfield Range Officer.

    I would probably go Colt or Springfield.

    I have a Springfield loaded in 3.5" that looks just like the one pictured above that i got for $750 new in box. Only difference is it does not have adj sights as you would expect for a 3.5" carry gun. It is all SS though so a bit heavier 32oz than say a plain black light weight Kimber Ultra Classic, which you may also find under or around $800. Both are great guns for the money. I like the new R1 from Remington as well.

    +1 for the Springfield 1911 A1 S/S Loaded. That was my first 1911 purchase back in May. Over 1k rounds through it and no problems
    at all. Great gun for the money.

    I was looking at 1911's at a large Louisville gun shop. I was looking at the Taurus and Kimber, and Sigs. He told me the Sig and Kimber are built the best. He said he gets a lot of Taurus returns. This not my experience but his as shop owner. I went with the Sig.

    Nobody has mentioned the STI Spartan? Found it for $628 at Gunsamerica. That's what I've been eyeballing for some time.

    Tymekeeper,
    I agree about the Ruger sr1911---one BIG problem is you (at least I can't) can't fine one for love nor money. Been looking on the net and asking every dealer in my area and no body has one or even knows when they will be available. What's up with Ruger? Everything I have read is good to great about this model and the price is awsome--. The one guy who said he would be able to get me one ---when his supplier can send him one--is asking about $588. Great price, but since it isn't available he could as well be selling them for $5.88. Has anyone heard what is up with Ruger and the production of this 1911 and when , if ever, they will be available?

    I second the ruger. I talked to a guy at scheels today and he said that ruger is almost 6 months behind on the sr1911. I guess they didn't think it would catch on this well. Anywhozer it's still better then kimbers release of the solo.

    If you could spare an extra $50 you could possibly find a sig Scorpion 1911

    Take a look at the Desert Eagle 1911G: Magnum Research. Also, here's an interesting thread I found on different 1911 pistols: http://www.1911addicts.com/showthrea...u-1911-addicts

    look at the various Sig 1911's. I have a friend with a C3, and after shooting it, I'd say it's a very sweet pistol for the money. Excellent and reliable.

    STI Spartan in a heart beat. I've had mine for 3+ years 5000 + rounds down the pipe no problems.

    I have a Springfield Loaded and am considering getting a Range Officer to go with it. Both are fine guns, and right around the $800 price point.

    I have a remington r1, no issues at all. 600+ trouble free rounds through it, including hollow points. I trust it in my nightstand for Home Defense. It cost me $600-ish.
