    Only if it's in the proper caliber: 9mm.

    I would do a little research and buy something I could flip quickly and then get myself another CZ.

    Dan Wesson...... or save a little more and get a Baer and be done with it. Hard to go wrong either way.

    Either a Kimber Stainless Target or a Springfield but either in 10mm. And probably the Kimber.

    yep i compleatly agree, i have a regent r100 1911 .45acp and ive used it in uspsa single stack division without issue. i can tell you first hand that the high end 1911s are the ones giving 1911s the bad name from being over tuned and tightend. i honestly have seen more glocks jam than my $400 turkish 1911

    "Out West" beat me to it.

    A Tisas M-1911A1 and a bunch of ammo.

    It will do whatever you need a 1911 to do.

    I have under $500 in the Springfield Champion I posted about in this thread:

    https://www.glocktalk.com/threads/springfield-armory-gi-champion.1864480/#post-29708868

    It turned out to be very accurate. I refinished the frame, replaced the mainspring, mainspring housing, leaf spring, trigger and extractor with parts from my parts box. Seems to be a good gun. Great stock trigger break, with no creep at all.

    In the late 90's I purchased my only custom pistol; a champion...nice piece, after 1k rounds the locking lug on the barrel sheared off..I called SA & Mr Williams made it right...a couple of years later, a friend shot it and had to have it...so now it is his EDC

    +1 I had one of the originals when I was young and dumb and thought I needed the money more than the gun. Oops I'd live to have a new one

    I would buy a 1400$ 1911 then return it as soon as possible, get my cash and go build two polymer80 or strike glocks.

    This is silly , you obviously have never owned or shot a “high end” 1911 because your regent does not hold a candle to how a well made 1911 fires and functions .

    Well I would put the money in coffee can, adding a few bucks to the fund until I could spring for an Ed Brown.
