To be up front with this I wont a 1911 but am just about broke all the time. Too miny people have dibs on my pay check whitch is a long story so we'll stay away from there.

I'm looking to buy a 1911 and I can come up with the money butt its not easy for me.
SO I was woundering what was out there in the $300 to $400 doller range that actually works?

Thanks !!!

Looks like they start out at about $620 ! Are they that much in the gun stores where you are ?
Nuttin cheaper than that around ?

I have a friend that swears by his Charles Daly. I already have a Kimber and a Colt but I have been hearing good things about Rock Island .45's gunbroker has them for $275
www.gunbroker.com/auction/ViewItem.asp?Item=24120795

Springfield is good too.

If you can save up a little more the Kimber BP10 II can be had for $540 on Gunbroker.

I see used SA Mil Specs for $350 - $400 about once a month. Keep an eye out at your local gunshops.

Jusy got hold of a sweet Ultra Compact 1911 for less than $450.00 out the door, Change the grips, sights, and trigger and your around $600.00 for a baddazz CCW pistola!

Oh....and throw in two seven rnd Chip McCormicK mags for another $30.00....youll need 'em

Great suggestion.

charles daly field grade, comes in, full size, commander, and officer. I bought a full size field grade for $400 new, with two mags and a hundred rounds of ammo. It shoots great, and has dovetailed sights in the front and rear which is a plus over the mil spec. Finish on it is great, barrel to bushing is tight, trigger is crisp and there is a small amount of play between slide and frame. The only gripe I have right now is the grips, which will be changed soon and the trigger has a very small amount of creep, but it is just as good or better than the springfield mil spec that I have shot. Hope this helps

I bought a springfield loaded for the same money...there's one in the EE now for a few dollars more...you'd have to be crazy to buy the CD new over a used springfield, I think.

what about Armscor? Under $400 with all the bells and whistles and they run right out of the box.

So you think a used spring field would be better than the CD ?
The gun shop I deal with gets in used guns all the time . I just wish I could pick one up new before some one peckerd with it.
And I at least wont to be able to hit the 10 ring at 25 yards.
Is the long slide better than a standerd ?

Thanks for all the help guys !
when I get some thing I'm going to show it to you !

There's a used springfield loaded, base model, in the EE right now....I'm kinda sorta trying to buy it,to be honest.....but I haven't made a deal yet, am in no particular hurry to, and think it would probably be a FINE starter 1911 for someone........here.

If I hadn't bought 3 pistols in the last 3 weeks......

Still think ya' ought to buy my pistol. I'll work ya' a good deal on it and include all the parts that I replaced. Most were good parts, just wanted to install the entire kit. Talk to me pard. I need to get some cash to pick up a SP101 in 9mm for my wife. I'd rather sell at a loss to a fellow forum member then trade to a gun shop and have them make a profit on the deal.
