As promised, here are a couple of my best 1911s to add to the mix for comparison.





Infinity custom

Frame: Steel
Slide: Steel
Unloaded weight: 39.0oz
Price: $3700
Action: SAO

Accuracy: 10
Trigger: 10
Ergonomics: 10
Grips: 9
Sights: 10
Controls: 10
Finish: 9
Build quality: 10

Overall rating: 9.8

This comparison is almost unfair, as the Infinity is a one off custom build being compared to a bunch of production pistols. The Schumann AET barrel is about the best handgun barrel you can buy anywhere. Between this and the incredible tight bull barrel lockup, the Infinity just flat out shoots. The trigger is the patented Tri-glide system at about 1.5 lbs. Its the best trigger on any handgun I own. The Infinicoat finish is impressive and its extremely well built by some very skilled hands.

RRA Limited Match

Unloaded weight: 41.4oz
Price: $2400
Action: SAO

Accuracy: 10
Trigger: 9
Ergonomics: 10
Grips: 9

I've given this 1911 many accolades throughout the years I've owned it. I love everything about the Limited Match and the price includes the Black T finish. Unfortunately, RRA has stopped building 1911s, but they can be found once in a while on the used market. This model comes standard with a 1.5" accuracy guarantee at 50 yards and every feature you could want in a 1911. The Kart barrel also performs very well.
