    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.

    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

    I have to agree with the Rock Island 1911. I have one and a 9mm version, both are excellent 1911.

    Here
    Just too add something different how about a 357mag? Single or double action either way still alot of fun and you can shoot 38 or 357mag so kinda 2 guns in 1.
    I will say I know alot of guys with the RIA 1911s and they love them and I've shot them and was more than happy. I just gave up on 1911s years ago.....unless it's a Chris Chambers custom then I'm hooked...lol!!!
