Thread: searching for my first 1911

  1. searching for my first 1911

    I've recently decided to look into purchasing my first 1911. I know there are endless options out there and im just looking for some feedback about experiences with some of the popular ones and any suggestions or what features to look for.

    Since its my first 1911 i think i want to stay under $800. i know this limits the possibilities but ive read reviews and i know there are a bunch of good ones out there for this money.

    Is a good read
    I would really recommend the desert eagle 1911, it's awesome.

    I would suggest the Rock Island Amory M1911A1 mil spec. I picked one up for $377. Great piece, just needed different grips. eBay!

    X2 Excellent Gun. Don't do the Commander Model though.

    I also vote for the Rock Island Armory. I have the 1911A1 and it's my EDC weapon.

    Another thing about the RIA M1911A1, a lot of competition shooters choose the RIA one as the base that they mod like crazy for competition, or at least I am told.

    I found one for $420 that had some extras and was not mil spec. Called the shop in PA to see if they had it and no they did not, but they had the pure mil spec one for $365 shipped. I jumped on it. FFL here charged $10-$15 per transfer.

    Here is the link. I do not know if they are still the same prices or if it is even in stock, but it is worth a call. FYI: they do not keep the site up to date.
