Looking for some help from the 1911 experts. I have decided to take the plunge into the world of 1911s. I own Glocks, HK's, and a Smith J Frame, but have always been a bit overwhelmed by all of the 1911 options. My use for this gun is for range use and to learn and tinker with. I want something reliable as it may go backpacking with me, and not so expensive I can't buy a pair as I have a couple of son's I plan on passing my collection off too when I am underground. I hear all of these internet stories about this 1911 only works with Wilson mags or that 1911 needs some upgrade to make it work right and its really hard to separate internet expertise with gun store bravado. Anyway, I would really like to stay sub 1k and have been looking at the different Springfield entry levels. I keep reading very positive things about RIA as well. I had a chance to fondle the new Remington, but it wasn't love at first sight. Of course it doesnt have to be. Anyway, thanks for your advice in advance.
