Ruger sells a 1911 in Black Nitride for about $850.I prefer the colts but been reading some parts are from overseas. Of course I don't trust everything online..I wish I knew for sure..and don't think colt would ever own up to that or admit it..
Sti's are nice but of course the ones I like are blued and don't want to deal with that maintenance prefer a coating of some sorts..phew Wilson's are beautiful but way to high..I'm up into 1500-1600 budget not 3500..
How recent are you talking? Haven't seen any of the newest production stuff yet.I like SAI 1911s. The recent production NM framed guns are legit and make great base guns or shooters.
SAI severed there relationship with IMBEL around the first of 2015.How recent are you talking? Haven't seen any of the newest production stuff yet.
