I've owned a few G17 and a G22, but never any non-Glocks. I am ready to look into one of them, and don't know the first thing about them. I do know that the price difference between 1911s is huge, though. I don't want to get ripped off, and I want to end up getting a gun that I can own for 50 years and pass on if I so choose. What's a good ballpark price to look for a 1911? I am guessing around $1200, but maybe you can get a nice one for under 1k. I was told that a CZ or a Dan Wesson would be a nice choice. Thanks guys.
