I have very little experience with 1911s and am now thinking I want to buy one. I know there are tons of variations and options when buying. I do know I want a full size, with a steel frame. From my limited knowledge I know I want a modern one. What options or features do I want to look for? Why? Is there any books or web sites I can look over to learn what I want to look for. I'm not looking for a show piece. I'm looking for one that will be the most user friendly. I'm not interested in looks, but want great function. At this point I don't know the brand names to look into or avoid. I handled a Kimber Warior and liked it, but don't think I want to spent $1500. What is the most bang for the buck?
