Well there are so many too choose from now on the market. Sure I'm sure there are a lot of crap pistols and I don't want to waste 400 bucks when I could add another 200 and get a good pistol. So what do you all think? I'm not talkin' bout some custom job, I'm just talkin' bout a good old combat pistol. No frills, no fancy, just point, bang, dead!!!!

edblevi, its hard to beat a plain jane springfield 1911, its the base pistol of many highly custom ipsc guns.

Here's a little trick. Go to the gun show. Look on the used tables. You don't see any Kimbers do you? (you wont) How many Springfields? one? maybe? But Llamas' and the like are a dime a dozen Do you see where I'm going with this? When someone gets a good one they keep it! Its like a used Ruger Blackhawk,(almost non existent) If you want a good one,Find out what people AREN'T trading in, then go get yourself one.

I really like my Norinco 1911, the only thing I am going to improve on it is the sights. It is jam-free and uses all mags.

I was just curious if anyone has seen a Dan Wesson 1911 yet. I happen to live close to the factory so I feel this kind of obligation to consider their pistols but have never actually seen one. Believe it or not as close to the factory as I am there is not one dealer in the area that stocks them. I'm dying to know more about them but have only seen one write up (it was very good by the way).

Norincos are made of good steel and are on the acceptable base gun lists of the big dollar custom boys like Wilson ETC.

... I really like Para-Ordnance P14-45 I fits nicely in my hand, it's tuned to digest the funkiest ammo around and she's a tack driver to boot. I like 1911's because you can switch springs quickly (lighter) and shoot wimpy loads at steel IPSC plates all day without any punishment and cheaply. Then clean, replace your "duty" load spring and load with 16 + 1 in the pipe with Cor-Bon +P+ loads for carry. Very diverse.

WW, I like the Para!!! but edblevi is looking for a budget gun.

hummm lets see here.1911 style..45 cal acp hummmi know how about the real deal Colt.the base gun is the 1991 stock no frills but has many enhanssments like larger ejection port,80 series saftys etc....5-600 hundred and you have a colt thats plenty tight and acurate out of the box.an if you want to customize it go for it. COLT.

Get the Kimber Classic (the base model) or a Springfield "loaded" and you will be good to go. Pick up some Wilson Rogers 8rd magazines, they are the best.

I saw one at the Big E gun show in Springfield last year. They were claiming to be MA compliant so I was pretty psyched about them. Of course, they're still not available here. They looked pretty good, and had decent price tags on them. They have a good feel, but the true test is at the range. One of the "budget" models might be worth a try.

Find a good deal for the Springfield "Loaded" 1911 pistols. I missed out on one just resently. Another opition is the Kimber line.

Are those 45's any good?
Link Posted: 9/22/2001 2:39:29 PM EDT
Prices on the Kimber Custom Classic have gone down alot. I have a Classic Royal. Springfield is probably your best bet. [:E]

just paid for my first 1911,it's a Springfield done up in a Nato green finish w/pachmyer wraparound grips and fully loaded,cost was $669 after $130 discount.[pistol]

if you were to get one of those surplus 45s with a new barel and barel bushing and new springs you would probaly have a nice gun. the great thing about the 1911s is just about anyone can change parts and make what you want

If your not going for the cudtom piece, then get a Springfield.
