    Like the title says, what 1911 is a great option for that price range? I only own an American Classic in my safe so far for 1911s and that is it. I am considering a second one.

    I want a full sized government model, no light rail, RELIABLE, and I don't care much about what materials were used to build it, although I prefer steel. I carried my other 1911 for over a year and love it. I shoot it better than any other pistol I own. I went back to a glock however for the time being. I want a .45 and I only buy new guns.

    What say everybody?

    If you can find one, the Ruger SR1911 would be a good choice in that price range.S/A Range Officer would be another option.

    Thanks guys! I am REALLY liking that Ruger. I have a thing for stainless on certain guns. Throw in the $650 or so price tag and the USA made stamp, and i am very tempted.
     
  6. I was asking a similar question lately, asking particularly about a comparison between the Remington R1 Enhanced (also one to consider) and the Desert Eagle G 1911. I got pretty consistent feedback that the latter was the better choice in terms of overall quality, fit and finish, trigger out of the box, in this price range. I just ordered the DE 1911 ($699 plus shipping, etc.) and I think I made a good choice. jrh

    I say go with the Ruger. I have an R1 that I really like myself that was in that pricerange..but I know most people want more features on a 1911...and r1 is more of a basic GI.

    Another vote for SR1911 and Range Officer,also a Remington would be in that price range, but I would take an SR or RO first:thumbsup:
     
  9. Springfield has some good choices. I think the R.O. Model is about $750 at the gun store I normally buy at. I know you can get them second hand for at least that if not less.
    Good luck with your search.
     
  10. Springfield GI...and a trigger job.

  11. Yes, do yourself a favor and read it.
    Last night I had some time to kill and read the whole thing. I learned a whole, whole lot.

    Ruger SR1911. Mine was 679.00 but it took five months to come into my LGS.

    Smack in the middle of your price range. No light rail or front serations. A nice clean Gov't Model. Nice fit and finish. 100% American made. Slide is milled from bar stock. Ruger may be new to producing a 1911 under their own name, but they have produced frames and small parts for others for many years.

  16. did you read what i read in that link? Les Baers.... come in a card board box!?!?!










    :whistling:
     
  17. Desert Eagle. If you can get by the giant roll mark. Great shooter and wonderful trigger.
     
  18. :agree:

    I hold that model in very high esteem.
     
  19. i am currently looking for my 1st 1911, and after reading and reading, i'm changing my thoughts on the DE 1911G, and i'm now leaning toward the STI. :dunno:
     
  20. Both the DE and STI Spartan are great options in that price range. The DE has a better trigger, in my opinion.
