I have 1911's. SA milspec and the colt defenders. Also have a colt gold cup. they are all terrific. prices range from 7 - 2200. all depends on your wallet. anything that is from SA, colt, wilson, BAER they wont let you down. Absolutely love shooting mine. Their appetite sux as it can get spendy lolI'm ready to take a break from the heathen polymer and get some American steel. : The first thing I noticed when looking at different 1911s is the price difference between brands. Anywhere from $500 for a Springfield or Rock Island to $2000 for a Colt or Wilson Combat. Now that I've got the itch I want to scratch it as soon as possible, but I'm willing to wait and save up more $$$ for something truly superior. So the question is, would you recommend I lose my 1911 virginity on a $500 gun, or save myself for a $2000?
