    Who makes the BEST 1911?

    I'm not into buying alot of guns...... just what I can use, or that seems to be something I gotta have. Don't know much about these pistols, but I've always wanted a Colt 1911. I know they are expensive, bu/t are they worth it? Is something like a S&W 1911 just as good, and cost less? I do like to have quality guns, even though, I only own a few.

    I guess what I'm asking is.....what should I look for in a 1911 pistol.
    I like used, but not abused, guns in very good shape.....and not too expensive. Is there any hope for me? Bob

    Bob I will admit to being prejudice, their is only one 1911 and that is colt. Are their others just as good? Yes and some even better, But Colt is about owning the real article.

    John Like Ruger Kimber likes to cast their guns, I have always preferred my guns machined from steel, Just call me an old living in the past dinosaur, their is probably some truth there. One of the most accurate 1911's that I have shot was a Kimber, also the same gun gave me the most problems of any 1911 that I have owned.

    Is biased for Colt, but I admit that is the only brand of 1911 I have ever shot.
    I can not abide useless people.

    Re: Who makes the BEST 1911?

    There was a lot of talk about how good (and loaded with options) the S&W 1911 was, when they first came out. Has that opinion changed? The S&W Factory is almost next door, making it convenient for service, for me. (I've needed it in the past, and it's great to just bring it to them. No shipping!) This has made S&W's the revolver of choice, for me.

    Getting away from 1911's.....how are the S&W's pistols in .45 acp? Are they just as good. I knew a target shooter who swore by his 645 as being as good. What do you guys suggest? I suppose they would be cheaper than Colts. Bob

    Bob, I would agree with c.pierce and Wendy. If you want an original 1911 go with a Colt. If you can find one of the series 70's (more to the original design) that is always my preference. I was out pricing a few today and they are going for at least $850 new though they were the newer series 80's. Which are good i have two and they shoot perfectly!
