OK so I was going to buy a 1911 for my 21st birthday, but with the economy doing so well I had to pay for other things first. I was looking into entry level 1911's such as the RIA tactical, Charles Daly, etc. I needed a right side safety since I am left handed. My original budget was <600. Now, I have saved up a bit and my budget is $700-800. I am now leaning towards a springer loaded SS. What say ye 1911 brain-trust? Anything else that I haven't seen in this price range? thanks, captdreifus Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
