I checked out the new Remington 1911 yesterday. It was priced a tad less that $700, and had nice overall fit and finish except for...the tip of the dust cover area of the frame. I only checked there because I heard about some newer Colts having an issue there, and it was the same. I'm not a machining expert, but it seemed like when the recoil spring tunnel was cut, it was off center + the very tip of the frame had an extra cut mark, seemingly where more than one attempt was made. So take a look there if you are planning on getting one. All the labeling on the frame indicated made in the USA, no made in Brazil or the Philippines which I coud see. Except for that, it looked very nice.
