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? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
