Hi - I have a Firestorm 1911 (now sold as American Classic) deluxe model. I really like the gun, and for the money, the fit and finish and performance is great. I think it cost me just under $400 a couple of years ago. I've always wanted a full sized stainless 1911 - not looking for a high-end collectable, just a reliable, solid shooter. American Classic came out with a hard chrome model, and I'm sure that they're great guns, but the finish isn't what I'm looking for. Any recommendations on a stainless 1911 in the $500 range? I've seen Springfields and Rock Islands in that price range - any specific suggestions? Thanks! Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
