Best 1911 ...$2000 ????

Best 1911 priced from $1500 to $ 2000 ???
Accurate at 25 yards
Reliable
45 acp
carry or Target shooting..
I have or had a bunch of 1911's and am racking my brain thinking of what I might want to get...
Thanks for any input !!!!! I bet Baers come up a few times in this list
I had 2 SRP's with the 1 1/2" ...MH 1 1/2"... P2 1 1/2" and a UM 1 1/2" .. I know all about Baers.. but I spent after upgrades much more than $1500 - $2000..

Probably a Baer PII with the 1.5" option, though I think that may put it over $2K.

Got one, and love it. Mine cost around $1800, but that was a few years ago and they have gone up a bit.

The Thunder Ranch or a non-1.5" PII should still be under $2000 and I don't think you lose much (if anything).

Baer TRS or DW Valor if we are trying not to break the $2000 mark

I had a quote from a excellent online dealer for a SF right at $2000 shipped ...so it's possible.

I'm not sure how much the Custom Carry from SA's Custom Shop is but that would be an excellent choice. It should be close to the $2000 limit.

No, it can be done. COntact George at Gunslingers - He handles orders for tons of people on the 1911 forums for Springers, Browns, Nighthawks and others. I ordered my Custom Springfield thru him.

The downside is he does not take credit cards. But, he does give discounts under MSRP. You can get a Brown for $2k or a little less new.

The Springfeild Armory Custom Carry, built by the custom shop. Roughly 1780 for the gun built by te custom shop (long wait though).

Flip a coin.

$2000 will buy (or build) a great gun, doesn't matter whose name is on it.

The Baer Premier II has adjustable sights. I bought a PII used off a friend and had Novacks put on it.

Save your money and get a Kimber. I've owned several high ends, Wilson, Brown, Nighthawk and each one gave me issues of one kind or another. Kimbers may have some issues from time to time too; but you pay half and get the same performance. The gun is only as good as the shooter anyhow.

+1 for Kimber...shoots just as good, the rest of the money($1000)could be spent on ammo.
