"Best deal" means what?
Do you have a price category?

I think the "best deal" on a 1911 is Dan Wesson PM-7 or CBOB. They are not at the bottom of the price categories though...

I think they recently had a major price increase which I'm unclear on the details of, but as recently as last year Legasat is/was correct IMO. YMMV.

Saw this on that website: S&W M&P1522P 22LR 6" AS 25R

I like it! It's good for cheap shooting for when family/friends want to come.

Thats what i was thinking. fully loaded SA for a good price. I am not sure what one I would pick. I know I want full size.

Still depends on what you want it for. Home defense? Range shooting? Competition? If you are just looking for flat out the best bang for your buck I think SA is hard to beat. However a Colt would be just a little bit more than your $800 ceiling. One of the local shops in my area had a SS Colt 80 series for $875.

Dont say forget price! 1911's get as expensive as you want them to be. Without a price limit Id say go get one of the limited run (only 50 made) Dan Wesson custom 1911's for $10,000.

Me, Im happy with RIA and Colt.

If you plan on ever using this gun in the event of a home invasion all I can say is get something with good sights. You can't say enough about sight picture when home defense is the issue.

1911s run from base mid 400s to low 500 for a basic model to the sky is the limit custom model. I would get a Kimber if I had to choose. I shot thise before and they shoot good. Most 1911s ive shot have a funky feel. Not sure if its the safety or the way the grips are or the frame of the gun but I dont care to shoot them. I had one and I sold it about 15 years ago

I really like my Springfield MC Operator. I paid about 1000 bucks for it..

Ive had it for years now and it's had outstanding reliability. It required no break in and shoots all types of ammo. It's flawless with FMJ and I've even tried 4 different types of hollow point ammo and they all fed 100%.

For an off the shelf gun, it's very tight and the fit and finish is excellent. It also comes with a lot of features so you might not even want to customize it any further.

If price was no object I'd get a Stan Chen custom... or one from Heirloom Precision. Until then, you've got tons of options in the $1000 range.

You can see and compare prices of a whole mess of 1911s at this site's Gun Genie: http://www.galleryofguns.com/default.aspx

(It's Davidson's website. Davidson's is a firearms wholesaler.)

Stainless Kimber TLE II RL here. I think I paid around $1300 for it. I then spent $300 for a Kimber .22 conversion slide, and around $150 for a stainless MSH unit and mag well. Very satisfied with the purchase. The gun was reliable and very accurate. The .22 conversion kit works very well too. I can switch back and forth without any tool in under 15 seconds. Kinda cool at the shooting range. 45 ACP is a little too expensive for plinking, that is after lowering the cost by more than 50% through reloading myself. The conversion kit makes good sense in the long run if you are serious about range shooting.
