As the title says, when it comes to production guns in the $1000 or less range whats the odds of getting a 1911 that is "correct" out of the box?. By correct, I mean one that you don't have to polish, buff, tweak, try different mags, etc. Although I'm a big 1911 fan, I only own two. One is a SA Mil-Spec that required a new slide stop out of the gate to get it to lock back on an empty mag. Otherwise, its been an extremely dependable gun with 6000 trouble free rounds through it. My other is a Kimber Pro TLE that has been less than stellar.
