When I was first introduced to firearms, there were a few laid out in front of me to mess with. hk45 g22 g27 p99 p226 elite 2 1911 Since I didn't know what to look for in a gun, I didn't really appreciate the feature that some go GAGA over. I didn't notice the difference in trigger pull, reach, sights and so on. I did like the grip of the Sig the best and the price of the Glock. So, trying to understand the appeal of 1911's, what the difference between one 1911 vs another 1911? Is it the fit and finish or are the internals different? What makes a bad 1911 bad and a good 1911 good? Why's one start around $500 and some go pass 2 grand?
