Hey all, For those who know me I'm a tinkerer and a glock fanboy, but I have always been fascinated with 1911's. I have decided to finally acquire a nice one (had a RIA while ago). I sold one of my glocks and moved some funds around... so my question to you all is.... If you had a ~$1000 budget would you: a. blow entire budget on purchase (colt?) what would you get? b. Buy okay 1911 and get work done (Springer,Sig?) c. Build your own from scratch (but get frame/slide fit smithed) *Few side notes* -I am leaning toward the Commander size -I plan on making this my daily carry (reliability is paramount, I am a glock guy) -it would be nice to be underbudget to I can pick up a db9 or something cheap... Thanks! Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
