As I stated in a previous post, I currently have a Trojan on order. Is there something else out there that you guys would recommend over the Trojan in the same price range? I do like the Colt Gold Cup, DK Smith, and several others...Your thoughts...

at 1k there is nothing else that i like. The SA Trophy Match and TRP, i like better but both carry a higher price tag. STI makes an awesome 1911 and is highly underrated

I'd say at $1k, for me at least, I would go with the STI Ranger2, but if you want a 5", the Trojan is hard to beat at that pricepoint.

Yeah, I've had my eye on the Trojan for a while. I just keep thinking about the S&W Doug Koenig, I can get it for $929....

Where are you seeing performance center DK's for $925. I thought they retailed upwards of 1500-1600.

It's the Champion Series - Doug Koenig model#108287. It MSRPs for $1477 but I can get it for $929...

Its not the PC model and it certainly isn't as nice as the Trojan.

No.

The Trojan has my vote as the best 1911 in its price range for sure. :)

Mine is certainly the finest pistol I have ever shot. You can't go wrong with the Trojan.

I got it for $700 used in like new shape. :tongueout:

It was a hell of a deal, since it would have been $1300 new.

Thanks.

Its a Trojan with the factory chrome finish and fiber optic front sight.

I love it and it was also one of the best deals I've ever gotten on a firearm. :wow:

I think it's as good as you can get for the price.

The Trojan's are great !! I have one in 9mm and my shooting buddy has the 9mm and a new 45 and all three shoot like a house on fire . We picked up the 45 on monday and went straight to the range and put 250rds thru it without a hiccup and it was shooting ragged holes !! You cant go wrong and the price is easy to live with for a quality 1911 . :thumbsup:

Go for the Trojan.
I have the Kimber and Springfield in a similar price range to the Trojan, I MUCH prefer the Trojan.

Ya Trojan all the way! If you were talking a PC smith over the STI it would be a different story, but i am not crazy about S&W 1911's otherwise.

I like Smith & Wesson's standard 1911 line, but they certainly aren't as nice as the Trojan.

I have the STI Lawman and think it's a great pistol! The ejector came loose so I sent the frame back to Georgetown, TX and their warranty folks handled the repair and replacement of the magazine release. While they had it, they reblued the frame and returned it at no charge! You couldn't ask for a better company or better people to deal with. The fact that the pistol shoots one hole groups is pretty special, too!

I have an STI Trojan in 40S&W, Dan Wesson PM-9 in 9mm, DW Pointman in 9mm, 40 S&W and 45 ACP and a SA Trophy Match. All have been excellent performers in terms of both 25 yard accuracy and reliability. My only dissappointment has been a SA 1911 Target in 9mm which originallly would get ca 6 in groups at 25 yards. After several trips to SA they finally reduced that to 4 inches - I finally sold the gun.
