In terms of accuracy and reliability, what do you consider to be the best .45 ACP semi-auto available today –– and why so? (There are so many platforms and manufacturers that I'm not even going to attempt a poll.)

Are you attempting to purchase the best or is this just another quagmire?

1911. Reason? It's what God shoots.

Black Stainless Loaded Target- mine is pictured here.

Before this is over someone will have mentioned every single manufacturer as "the best".

IMO the SIG P220.

I used to have a couple of them; they were accurate, extremely reliable, and a joy to shoot.

Everyone that posts 1911 should be banned if they don't list a make and model.

I will throw this out there and get an obscure one out of the way:

CZ-97b. I know there are better makes out there, I just love mine. Great value for the money.

If they were so great, why did you get rid of them? Let me guess. So you could get a Glock?

Mine is more reliable than any other 1911 I have ever had.

Sig P220 (West German only).

Not very common but you can still buy them and they kick the shit out of almost all 45's. Smith Performance Center pistols are among the very best. Extremely durable, reliable and accurate:

There are a lot better models out there but my two (and previously owned S&W's) have all been 100%... 18.5 springs, WC, CMC, and Brown mags.

I absolutely love my HK45, the grip is just freakin' awesome and it shoots really well also, and is pretty much unbreakable.

I had a Colt Combat Commander, that thing sucked donkey balls. I have a Springfield Loaded 1911, it's been flawless. I also have a CZ 97B, also flawless. Sometimes I think I prefer the CZ. It feels bigger in the hand than the 1911, due to the doublestack mag, but it handles and shoots great. I used to have a S&W 745, it ran like a top and was very accurate.
Link Posted: 5/13/2009 10:28:31 AM EST
If you say 1911, then that will open a whole new can of worms.

Glock 21SF

Tough finish, supreme reliabilty, very accurate and holds plenty of ammo.
