Hard to get a really quality 1911 under $600

Have you considered a CZ75?

I bought a Rock Island 1911 CS for $400 out the door. I love it!! It's a tack driver. I've never had any failure with it either. Great little 1911.

Rock Island supposedly makes a quality 1911 at a great price. I have read many good reviews and few to none bad.
However, I would much prefer a CZ 75 BD since a live in what is as we speak still a free state without nonsensical restrictions.
With the mag limits considered I might be persuaded to give a Rock Island 1911 a shot.

I've had several Rock's, and they've all been great and trouble free.
I've actually been thinking of getting back into 1911's and have been eyeballing this..

I don't know if this particular model is out of reach living in Cali, but this is one of the few low buck 9mm 1911's that seem to run without issue.

Like asking others what girl to date. What is your intended use, which may narrow it down by hundreds of choices? You looking used or new? You can get a better quality 1911 used, instead of a lesser gun new, which WILL BE USED as soon as you buy it. Since you have a long gun, do you want a compact or micro? Wheel gun or semi-auto? A used AR or shotgun? I cannot recommend a solution to an open ended question, that would be silly of me.

Let me ask you, how long is a piece of string?

If you're looking for a 1911, RIA makes quality firearms for the money. But at your price point you might be able to find a used SR1911. I dont know about where you are, but I'm thinking about picking up the SR1911 CMD from my local store new for $695

I have no intentions of conceal carrying, it's intended for range use only. For home defense my g17 will be grabbed without a doubt. I prefer a semiauto around the same size as my g17
I'm willing to go used but would rather have new
Primarily am looking for 1911's,
Used browning hi power
Cz75b
