Wondering if this 1911 is worth buying price seems cheap.
For a entry level 1911 would this be a good buy?

I've been wondering about that one myself. I'd like to get into the 1911 world without spending a whole lot of money. Only thing is, it's not on the DOJ list. Another inexpensive 1911 that I've been looking at, and seems to get decent reviews is the RIA 1911. Good luck finding one that's not marked up a significant amount though...

The store I bought my Auto Ordnance 1911 from had a RIA as well. I went with the AO as I have heard that thing have gotten better since Kahr bought them (and so far no problems with my AO), and the parkerizing looked a little nicer on the AO.

I too don't want to spend 1k or more for a good 1911
