I have had my eye on a couple of 1911's and im very interested in the Dan Wesson. I like the feel, the look, and the accuacy. It brings a lot to the table. Anyone else have any oppinions I can consider?
1911s are not a gun to skimp on. The third-tier 1911s seldom run well.Slam Fire said:If you don't know what you're looking at and why then you're over your head on a 1911.
I like the Springfield for all sorts of reasons. I don't like Kimbers for a lot of the same reasons.
Wilson Combat are hot.
But "best for the money" is not the paradigm you want to bring to a 1911 purchase.
"What's a decent gun, and I don't care what it costs?" That's what you want to consider.

Funny you mention RI, Gunny. I've sold a couple of them and those customers RAVE about them. Now, to be sure, they're not as purdy or slick as some of the others mentioned, but they shoot like original GI Colt Autos and, when we took them to the range with every dad-blamed kind of leftover, oddball, old - new - dirty - clean - ammo that was lying around...they went BOOM and not CLICK EVERY SINGLE TIME.Gunny the Gun said:Rock Island, hands down.
