4" barrel 1911 under $900 options

Discussion in '1911 Forums' started by BlackPaladin, Mar 10, 2011.

  1. Looking to possibly purchase a 1911 in the next 3 months, and the only criteria I have is:

    -Under $900
    -4" barrel
    -No rail
    -I like Novak style sights

    I do like black finishes, but SS is not a deal breaker. I just want something nice, basic with not a lot of frills, and reliable. I do not want something that I need to change much, I would spend it up front if that was the case. Just out of the box decent.

    Springfield Champion or Kimber Pro Carry 2. I'd save another $100 and get a STI Ranger 2. Barrel is a smidge over 4", but more bang for the buck.

  3. The Springfield Champion looks decent, looks like there are some options (finishes) to pick through.

    His odds of finding a Champion TRP and one at that price are slim to none. :supergrin:

    I have a springfield loaded champion which has a bull barrel with ramp, and it has never given me a problem. Its polished stainless with night sights, think i spent 650 but they retail about 800.
     
  13. I am really leaning towards the Springfield Loaded Champion, as posted above. I certainly appreciate the feedback! I think the tough part will be to actually find one.

    Quack, that pistol looks pretty sharp! I agree with the poster who said fat chance I will find one at that price though.
