is it too late to find a decent 1911 (or variant) for ~$500 with no MIM parts? though i don't think it's asking too much ... all the SA and the like in this price group seem to be predominantly MIM. it seems to me about 5-10 years ago, one could get a decent 1911 with all steel parts for the same price (which means inflation-adjusted price much lower).

sorry, i know this has NEVER been talked about before ;)

If you're lucky and find a guy that has one that's replaced all the MIM parts, and needs money REAL bad, then maybe, but don't count on it, cause I'm looking for him too!

If you can find one of those ugly old rollmark Colt 1991s for around $400 or so, you should be able to replace the MIM in it for under $100.
