Thread: 1911...

    I bought my Kimber used, and saved about $150. It had only had about a hundred rounds put through it and for the life of me, can't figure out why the other guy didn't like it.

    I have read good things about the Rock Island 1911s. I have an Auto Ordnance I have been quit pleased with.

    I agree a Used Kimber from a trustworthy source would be worth it or a new base model springer.

    www.gunbroker.com has some good deals too. I've never searched for a 1911 on there, but I'm sure the have them. The only downside to Gunbroker is that you have to pay an FFL usually around $25 to do the transfer.

    Rock Island 1911 is probably the best for the money. A little TLC, a ramp job, a trigger job and you can shoot anything you feed it. All Colt parts will fit it so it can be set up any way he likes.

    The Taurus Pt 1911 comes in blued or stainless not chrome. But it is a nice firearm and several hundered under the kimber.

    I've got the Taurus and it's really worth the money. It may not be as "cool" as the Kimber, but it's been really reliable. It comes with a lot of standard features that usually add to the price of a gun and I've had absolutely zero problems with it. I'll still buy a Kimber one day, but I won't be getting rid of the Taurus.

    I would second the motion on Taurus. I don't own a Taurus 1911, but I do own 3 other models. A PT145 Millennium, A 24/7-C Compact 9mm, and a 24/7 OSS 9mm. These are all totally reliable, accurate, and were easy on my pocketbook.

    Whats expensive.....you can buy a new Colt and S&W for a bit over $700, a new Springfield or Ruger Phoenix for a bit over $600.
