    Ok I went to the range today and rented a 1911 and I fell in love. I have always wanted a 1911 since I was a little boy so after today I am in the Market everthing else can just take a back burner. With that being said I got like 500dollars to spend OTD what are my options or am I out of luck? I am personally looking for basic GI model. Can you suggest any decent manufactures at my price point? Thanks guys
     
  2. what did you rent? There are many different features between 1911's. So a GI/Mil-Spec doesn't have a beavertail GS, so it will be a little higher on your grip, so it will feel alittle different.

    But then 1911's are very customizable. So if you do get a GI/Mil-Spec it can be customized to YOUR 1911.

    Also, depending on what you'll use it for, getting the right "base-gun" can help with the build, if that's what you want to do.

    Look at the sticky in this forum for some great guide.

    Personally I was looking at a milspec that I might have customized over time. I gonna differently take a look at the guides I would much rather pay little more now then a lot more later

    That was my first thought cause I had read about them on here. I called around and no one has any and there is no ETA on when they will get more. I cant even find them online which stinks. Does anyone know when there might be a possibility there will be more on the market?
    Or
    Should I start saving up a little extra and get a Springfield Armory 1911 GI. Also whats the going price for the spring field I asked at my local range and they where quoting around 715 which seems pricey for entry level 1911
     
  8. that's steep for a SA GI

    Call Sarco, Inc. at 908-647-3800. If you buy from them, they will need to have a dealer's FFL copy sent to them in order to ship it to that dealer.

    Don't get ripped off. Here try Gunbroker, the link below is a good price but you can search for Rock Island 1911 and find some good/well reviewed dealers. :wavey:

    The citadel is a solid gun. Mine had a problem with it, but I should be able to replace it fairly easily.

    I have an American Classic Deluxe 1911 - it's a great gun. They are imported by the same company that handles Bersas, but they are built by two different manufacturers - they have a lifetime warranty, if ya need it. Under $500, blued.
