So is ATI the best under $450 and STI Spartan IV best under $700?

Yes on the ATI, don't know about the other one. You should be able to do some negotiating and get the ATI for $400 plus tax.

also check GT member BAC1023 1911 Buyer's Guide (http://www.1911addicts.com/showthread.php?511-Buyer-s-guide-for-all-you-1911-addicts) lots of good info there.

I certainly agree on the ATI.

The Spartan would surely be one of them.

So if you had your choose of either the ATI or STI would you guys lean towards STI for the commander length?

Not me. The whole raison d'etre for buying a Filipino gun is to get it cheap. I'm not going to pay $700+ for a Filipino gun.

Good my thinking as well, now where does Para stand in all this? I like their GI LTC but eiffy on the cast stuff, I know bac has his feelings on that as well but you think they've improved?

Para has not improved.

Now my dilemma, I want a 1911 commander for carry but not sure about the ATI, and since para is out because of quality, where does it leave me? You think the combat sights will work?

I guess I can go with American classic commander, they seem to have the updated sights. I seem to recall you giving them a good review on your buyers guide with the entry enhanced level 1911.
