    "Get a 1911"

    I told my coworker is who is ex-army, and only one of two people I know I can talk to about guns at work, I was thinking of getting either a Rough Rider 22 revolver or a S&W Victory 22 pistol. He said "Get a 1911". I said "Well there are 1911 style 22s". He replied, "No get a real one, a 45.". I laughed and said "I'd like to some day, but they're not cheap". I keep entering contests trying to win one. One I'm in now is for 9mm version though.

    This ^^^^. I was going to look at the RIA's because they are usually at great price when on sale. I just got luck that Rural King made an error on the price of the SR1911CMD and that they honored it.
    Grabagun has 3 Remington's at decent prices,
    Remington 1911 R1 Black .45ACP 5-inch 7rd Walnut Grips
    Remington 1911 R1 Commander Black .45 ACP 4.25-inch 7Rd
    Remington 1911 R1 200 Year Commemorative Edition Black .45 ACP 5-inch 7Rd

    And Remington has a rebate right now on their 1911's:

    There have been some recently that have been priced as low as 350 and they look pretty good. The Rock Island family is great for quality and shootability.

    Yeah I've been wanting a 1911 for ages but the price has held me back too. The Rock Islands can be had for $350ish and they are nice. I really want a Taurus stainless though and I'm trying to hold out. I must have a rich uncle dying somewhere!

    I'll go out on a limb, and probably get chastised, but in my opinion, there are two choices in 1911's- The Taurus PT1911 and an authentic Colt.

    There are lesser expensive models- eschew them...

    There are an almost infinite number of models that range from expensive to very, very expensive- Go for one of them if you feel the need for conspicuous consumption.

    A PT1911, NIB would likely run $450. to $475. An authentic Colt, nothing exotic or fancy or engraved, or commemorative, $800.

    Pick one and save for it. (JMHO, YMMV...)

    I disagree. I've had a number of great 1911's, several of which were economy models. The Springfield GI was 400 bucks, runs great. Thompson Auto Ordnance-great gun, one of the most accurate. Even my old Kimber was a bargain at 425-marked down for a flaw. But if you want a Heritage, go for it! They are a great gun for the price. Watch the ads at Bud's-they often have blemished models at serious discounts.

    Over the years I've had several 1911's from various makers. The two that disappointed me was AMT Hardball and Auto Ordinance. RIA and TISAS were surprises as they were not bad at all. I bought a Taurus PT1911 from a friend for $325 because 1. that is what he asked and 2. he needed money. My most recent is a double stack RIA in .22TCM and 9mm. It worked great with .22 TCM needed some ramp and throat to make it reliable in 9mm ball and JHP's. I think I only have $400 in it.

    If you have to have a Colt, I think you should look for a Series 70 as they probably represent Colt when their quality was the best.
