Hello all, I'm looking for a basic/entry level 1911 pistol...something in the $500 range. This would be my first 1911 pistol and would strictly be a range toy (assuming I can find some ammo). I've narrowed it down to 3 choices and would like your opinions on them, esp. if you own any of them. 1) Para Ordnance GI Expert - http://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/product_info.php/cPath/21_53/products_id/56531 2) Norinco 1911 A1 3) Springfield GI - http://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=32588 At this point I'm leaning towards the Para. The Norinco looks like a good pistol from what I've read but I can't seem to find one. And the Springfield...I am still reading up on it. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
