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.)

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.
