Not another 1k thread...New or Used...if you did it all over again..

Well folks it just so happens I won my fantasy football league, which is great because I get a few $$$. With any windfall profits and an active internet connection; one must post the obligatory 1911 for $1K thread.

Looking for new or used options. I would prefer stainless, however, I think this is my mild case of iophobia to rust...

1911 possible uses
- CCW
- Range fun
- companion when hunting
- posting pics on the internetz

In all seriousness what would you guys/gals recommend?

My response never changes. The STI Trojan is my model of choice.

A used TRP is another option, but I prefer the Trojan for range use.

Thanks for the recommendations. Lobe the fact that sti is local. I find it odd that sti makes so few ss models.

My vote is for the Trojan as well! The Ranger II would also be a great option.

Your local to STI and your asking us these questions! Jeez! Go get you one already!

That's fine with me, I much prefer carbon steel 1911s.

I really feel its a better material for the platform. So do quite a few others.

You can get one hard chromed as a custom order from brazos. $300 upgrade. No idea on timing.
