Of course the only problem I see with them is the lack of holster availability. I would go with the loaded if you want stainless. My personal suggestion, if you're going to spend $1000, mind as well fork out the extra few hundred and buy a stainless trp...

Is this your first 1911. Forgive me if it's been mentioned already.

Ditto. And I'm a huge fan of SA 1911's. I own 5 of them, but just can't make myself like the Loaded model. To me, it goes straight from Mil-Spec to TRP.

What about the MC Operator?

This will be my first 1911.The Sig is way lower on my list,I do have a Sig P938 I like.I haven't found a TRP at any LGSs,and aren't they more like $1,400.00 or more?I've got to draw a line somewhere.

The lowest price that I found on a new SS TRP was $1447.
IMO it's worth every cent.

I saw a new TRP Operator (rail) this am and it was $1569.

You can probably find a used TRP in the neighborhood of $1200 and maybe less.

You're on the right track, asking questions and doing your homework. As I recall I bought a NIB S&W for my first 1911 because $1000 was my limit. It was enough for the bug to bite but I sold it after about six months. I was an absolute PEST to Bac. Thankfully he is a patient man.

If you really want to stay under a $1000 you should look at the Ruger. There's a new thread here with a link to a store that had at least 20 of them earlier today.

Good luck.

Honestly, go with the loaded. It's a great first 1911 and you don't really need to do much to it. I have both the standard and the champion and I really like both. You're just going to have to really knuckle down and try to find one.

You may also think about the range officer as well.

Do you want me to call around to see if I can find you a Loaded?

As a Springfield fanboy and owner of a Milspec, EMP and two TRP's, I don't think that the Loaded is the best value in the Springfield line up. I owned a Loaded black stainless target and while it looked great, the trigger was heavy and the fitting was not the best.

You should be able to find a TRP for 1350-1400 if you want to save a little more money, it will definitely be worth it. Or take a step down to the Mil Spec and have an Ambi Safety installed. Don't be afraid to keep an eye out for a used TRP, you can find them in good condition at reasonable prices, and stainless versions always seem to be a little cheaper. Springfield's warranty is the best in the business.

Having both Springfield TRP and Sig, the Sig stainless rail is very nice and has excellent specs for a 1911 within your budget range. I'd suggest that you put one in your hand and give it a closer look. BTW-the magwell and grips were added to the Sig.

Thanks John,thats a real nice offer but I'm not sure what I want yet,and don't want to put you threw that much trouble until I do.One of my LGS has one (or did) for $900.00 but that seems to be a bit high after seeing what Bud's had it for.

I was able to fondle a SIG 1911 @ my LGS; very nice gun indeed but I'm just not a fan of railed 1911s.

I'm not sure if I like the rail either.I don't think I want a rail for my first 1911.
