Thread: 1911?

    1911?

    I've wanted a 1911 in some shape form or fashion for the last 20 odd years. I dont want to mortgage 40 acres to buy one. All I see on the market are probably over priced. Any suggestions? Kinda wish Ruger would get on the 1911 bandwagon,itd be affordable and shoot great to boot.

    While we obviously have wildly divergent opinions of Ruger, I would suggest you look into Armscor / Rock Island Armory 1911s. They are made in the Philippines and marketed here under both names. The one I own is marked Armscor, and it's a fine pistol.

    in the last month i have purchased a Rock Island 1911 acp .45! It is great! I got it for $425 they are less expensive and are just as good as any other. Just one persons opinion

    Just keep your eyes open and tell EVERYONE you know what you're looking for. That's how I run across good deals. I picked up my Kimber Ultra CDP II, only 500 rounds through it, for $600 cash. I picked up a Kimber Ultra Carry II, one box of ammo through it, from a local police officer a few years back for $450.

    Both the Kimbers I've had have ran perfect and are great guns. If you can find one in your price range you won't regret it!

    Good luck and let us know when you get one!!

    One of the best "bang for your buck" 1911's is the Taurus PT1911. Another great choice would be the GI Expert from Para.

  8. Springfield GI. No bells, no whistles, just plain old school gun.

  9. The RIA is a good start into the 1911 world. I have several and they shoot very good. They shoot almost good as my Kimbers.

    Those are GREAT deals on those 2 guns. I recently bought a NIB CDP Pro II and it was $1162 before tax!

  11. I would love to have a Kimber (even though I have read some questionable stuff about them) but, alas, they are far above my price range. RIA's are in my price range. Mine shoots as well as or better than the Colts that I used when I fired on an Army pistol team some 37 years ago. I am very happy with my RIA. I can handle the price and can still afford to buy ammo to shoot in it. No problems with it so far. I am just as happy as if I had the "Cadillac-Kimber".
