Looking for a budget 1911



I dont have $1k to drop on a 1911. I've noticed that there are a few brands in the $400 range but didnt want to buy a gun that was going to be nothing but trouble. What would be something to look at. I'm leaning toward the Rock Island.

It seems like I read it was a pretty good gun.

It's $700. I'm looking at buds and they have an American Tactical for $389 with a few in between that and the Para for $553. Thats the range I'd like to say in.

Para for $553 sounds like a good deal.

1911s are like old Harleys anyway. You've gotta take 'em all apart and put em back together to make 'em run smooth.

I like the 10mm round, but just not in a 1911. I'd rather have a .45

If you want a good 1911, you're gonna have to drop more than $400.

An ATI or a RIA will run, no doubt. But they just don't have the finesse and smoothness of something American. If you want a budget American 1911, I suggest the Ruger SR1911. They actually have one right now at Bowie Outfitters for $769.

I would also suggest an entry level SW1911 or the lowest level Kimber - the Custom II, is really good. The Remington R1 and R1 enhanced are both great too.

If you get a 1911, get an American one. Do us all a patriotic favor.

One thing for sure, you've got some real good options in that price range now.

2-3 years ago, not so much.

I just got a Ruger SR1911 for $699.95. I don't think you can get a better 1911 for that price. They're hard to find though because they're very popular.
