Looking for my last 1911 I'll ever buy.

I'm looking at getting "the only 1911 I'll ever need". I already have 4 others(2 colts, Kimber TLEII, Dan Wesson PM3-B) but I want one that should in theory last forever and hold up to tens of thousands of ronunds + . Under 3K. I know there's some extremely knowledgeable 1911 aficionados here. So, please humor me with any suggestions.

Also, I don't really think this will be my last one......

Thanks,


B_RAD

I guess I would have to say Wilson. There are tons of high round count Wilson's out there, the company is well established and isn't going anywhere (I don't believe), and has great CS in the event you would ever need something.

Wilson or Guncrafter. Can't go wrong either way.

Your best bet would be to go with a Guncrafter. Especially if your goal is to keep it under 3K.

I missed the 3k piece. With Wilson's price increases, he would be in the used market now. GCI would be my second choice, but I don't know of many/if any high round count Guncrafters out there. I would guess Carguys probably would have 4-5k rounds through his now if he kept up his initial pace. Would be interested to see where he is at and if he has had any issues.

Any of the semi-customs should do, with emphasis given to Wilson, Baer, Guncrafter, and Springfield.

A great list for sure

I'd add the Guncrafter No Name.

I'd put more weight in a no-questions asked lifetime warranty. Beside Springfield (and STI?) which other company has one?

For just under 3K you can get a Wilson X-Tac or CQB although you wouldn't be able to add many, if any options as they would put you over budget. I personally prefer to buy guns new but there are plenty of folks who have purchased used and been very happy.

My vote goes to the Les Baer SRP. A $3k budget should allow for the 1.5" option and maybe a couple special order touches (different trigger, grips, etc.) if you so choose. It would be impossible to beat the accuracy or reliability in that price range.

I was looking at the LB HM 45 the other day. My super heavy CZ SP01 Shadow with full rail makes shooting 9 like an airsoft. Bet the Monolight 9mm does the same or moreso!
