    If you could only choose one 1911 manufacture to supply you with 1911's who would it be? I am really curious to here from some of the major collectors opinions. Keep in mind they can only supply you with what they offer no custom one off guns.

    I know me personally I have no clue I have not experienced enough of the different 1911 manufactures to make a choice.

    Colt or Springfield Armory. Both make enough production guns in just about any fashion you could ever want.

    Me I would go with SA nothing against Colt I just never owned one.

    I'm no "major collector" but I prefer Springfield Armory.
    Best customer service, best range of models from GI to Pro.

    STI for me. Sub-$1,000 all the way up to full blown race guns. Plus, they're fellow Texans. :thumbsup:

    If only "Production" I would go with Colt.

    If I can include the Custom Shop... Springfield.
