Looking to possibly purchase a 1911 in the next 3 months, and the only criteria I have is:

-Under $900
-4" barrel
-No rail
-I like Novak style sights

I do like black finishes, but SS is not a deal breaker. I just want something nice, basic with not a lot of frills, and reliable. I do not want something that I need to change much, I would spend it up front if that was the case. Just out of the box decent.

Springfield Champion or Kimber Pro Carry 2. I'd save another $100 and get a STI Ranger 2. Barrel is a smidge over 4", but more bang for the buck.

The Springfield Champion looks decent, looks like there are some options (finishes) to pick through.

Kimber Pro Carry II

I carry a stainless model and have for over 6 years.

His odds of finding a Champion TRP and one at that price are slim to none. :supergrin:

I have a springfield loaded champion which has a bull barrel with ramp, and it has never given me a problem. Its polished stainless with night sights, think i spent 650 but they retail about 800.

I am really leaning towards the Springfield Loaded Champion, as posted above. I certainly appreciate the feedback! I think the tough part will be to actually find one.

Quack, that pistol looks pretty sharp! I agree with the poster who said fat chance I will find one at that price though.

sold my RRA AR and went home with $$$ in my pocket.
got home and looked for 9mm 1911's and bought these that got worked on by the SACS

9mm hi-cap and a 38 Super Mil-spec.
SACS fit them so that the slides and frames can be swapped :supergrin:
the 9mm has a Nowlin's barrel too

Very nice. Why did you get rid of your AR? Was that your only one?

bought it for CHEAP and with the intention of making money, which i did. i have other AR's. I also stripped the gun of some parts for one of my AR's, like the RRA 2-stage trigger, anti-walk pins, grip, and extended charging handle.

Sounds like you made out. I went to Medina last month, just bought 500 rounds for my AK.

Nice, that's a good problem to have. Normally I don't have enough ammo for the guns I have. I'm really trying to resist adding any calibers for a while. We'll see how that goes.
