I gotta admit right now I'm jumping around from one brand to another trying to figure out which semi-custom/production 1911 I should go with. I've been looking at the Sti Lawman, few Dan Wessons, and Springfield TRP.

If you had $1500 to spend give or take couple hundred bucks what 1911 would you buy?

1. 4-5inch
2. 45acp
3. no rail/or half rail like trp
4. no stainless

This will be my EDC and I don't have a problem carrying a 5inch barrel.

Magnum Research Desert Eagle 1911 is an option.

STI has some nice ones...take a look at their 2011 double stack lineup. It may be a little big to carry on the bike, though.

I'd buy me a Colt Government Model for around $850 and spend the rest on ammo, mags and good leathers.

Springfield has some nice options and some of them would leave accessory money in your pocket. With any quality 1911 the most important things are good holsters, good spare mags and lots of ammo.

Sounds good, just swap out Government Model for Combat Commander, and call it a day.

I can live with that. Though I think that currently the Combat Commander or Lightweight Commander are in the XSE series and they go for around $950.

$100.00 is what. . . . . 3 boxes of ammo?? :dunno:

In Virginia, a friend has been getting .45 acp Federal HST for $29.00/50 rounds, for me.

I bought a Springfield Mil-spec and had it customized to the way I wanted it. That way it had everything I wanted (btgs, match trigger + trigger job, extended thumb safety, light weight hammer, match sear, and polished internals) without the things I didn't want (front cocking serrations, billboard slide lettering, etc.) The total cost was around $1300 for the gun and the work. It is a US made version also. I have 4k rounds through it since the work and it has been completely flawless. Not a single jam or FTE/FTF with all different sorts of ammo.

I had a custom horsehide with shark leather trim holster made by Kelley gun leather that I have been very happy with.

It may be US-assembled, but not US made. All the major components come from IMBEL.

Not that it matters if country of origin is not an issue with the prospective owner.

I'd rather have an IMBEL before a Ruger, SW or Remington.

Thanks for correcting me, your right as usual! :wavey:

They do. Between the trp and valor though i can pick it up for the same price. The trp i want is the operator version for 1680 total. The valor blk version 1730 total. As much as I like Sti aesthetically they arent as pleasing to me.

The TRP is nice. Good luck with your decision, man.

Having at one time owned a Les Baer premier11, SA mil-spec, DW CCO. I'm now happy with my new SA TRP AK.:cool:

I can't believe nobody has suggested the Les Baer Premier II yet. I've owned several semi-custom and custom 1911's. None have given me as much performance for the money as my Premier II, and it is at the top end of your price range.

Go with a TRP or Valor.

The new Ithaca is also a nice option. Mine has been great.

The Springfield Trophy Match Models are imported as rough castings and most of the important machining is done in the US.

I've noticed the TRP has the bull barrel on their operator model. Any key benefits or detriment to this? The one I wanted is the Operator TRP.

I've considered all the above trust me :)

If I could I would get all of them. But money being tight and me not being a collector like Bac or Quack I unfortunately limited to just one... Gotta make it worthwhile so I think I will pick up the TRP Operator tomorrow. :)

I'll post report as soon as I get it.. Thx for the help everyone.

Great choice, looking forward to your range reports...

Well, after all that I decided to pick up the STI Ranger II in 45acp. I got it about 1.5weeks ago so I've had it for awhile. I did a Wilson flat trigger and have a Brown MSH/Magwell coming. Here's a pic of it as she sits now..

Out of the brands that the OP listed, I'd say Springfield.

This will be my EDC and I don't have a problem carrying a 5inch barrel.

If it were for my EDC, I'd go with the shorter Commander model. It will be easier to conceal, and easier to draw.

I have a full size Springfield Milspec, and it's been reliable. I seldom carry it, but if it were my EDC, I'd feel confident that it would have no issues if needed to defend my life.
