    Well folks it just so happens I won my fantasy football league, which is great because I get a few $$$. With any windfall profits and an active internet connection; one must post the obligatory 1911 for $1K thread. :rofl:

    Looking for new or used options. I would prefer stainless, however, I think this is my mild case of iophobia to rust...

    1911 possible uses
    - CCW
    - Range fun
    - companion when hunting
    - posting pics on the internetz :rofl:

    In all seriousness what would you guys/gals recommend?

    My response never changes. The STI Trojan is my model of choice.

    A used TRP is another option, but I prefer the Trojan for range use.

    Thanks for the recommendations. Lobe the fact that sti is local. I find it odd that sti makes so few ss models.

    My vote is for the Trojan as well! The Ranger II would also be a great option.

    Your local to STI and your asking us these questions! Jeez! Go get you one already!

    That's fine with me, I much prefer carbon steel 1911s.

    I really feel its a better material for the platform. So do quite a few others.

    This is sex. Is this an option from STI or did you have someone else do the work? I want one bad, just need to make some more money :crying:

    You can get one hard chromed as a custom order from brazos. $300 upgrade. No idea on timing.
