10 Ring Precision built me a custom 1911 back in 1990 that is still the most accurate 1911 I have. It came with the target (10 shot group at 50 yards under 3 inches) and still shoot great to this day. Built on an Essex frame and Colt slide.

Any Les Baer model with Or without the 1.5" Option @ 50 yrds. All Baers will do less than 3" @50 yrds.

I've never owned one. But my 1991 Commander shoots just fine.

I have really been amazed with how accurate my EB Kobra has been from the first trigger pull on.

I have quite a few that are very accurate.

I shoot my Infinity the best, due to the accuracy of the gun and the amazing trigger.

My best shooting 1911 is a Les Baer SRP with the 1.5" accuracy guarantee.

my springfield pro will shoot hole in hole all day long if i am up to it. the best shootability came from my trp operator. combination of weight, bull barrel, and heavy recoil spring made it recoil less than a 9mm. it too was a tack driver.

My Dan Wesson CCO is the most accurate and best trigger of a 1911 I've ever shot. Just amazing.

Mine are all quite accurate. However, my Guncrafter and Ed Brown Special Forces has been great. I just picked up a Wilson CQB today. I haven't shot it, yet, since I picked it up after going to the range.

My Gold Cup and, believe it or not, my s/s Springfield Armory Compact. That commander-sized beast is amazing.

my Les Baer premier II ties with my old USGI 1967 built national match pistol. I can shoot one handed bullseye shooting groups of under 2 inches at 25 yards. my groups at 50 yards hover around 5 inches, but the guns can definitely still do better.

Same for me.
I had a few Colts over the years and then the Kimber, the difference is obvious from the shooter's perspective.
I'd love to own a Bauer or other top tier gun someday, but I can't honestly say the targets would notice.
A good 1911 is something special.
