Imo, when you start getting outside of $2500 on a 1911, you're no longer paying for top quality parts, hand fitting and good finishing, you're paying for a name plus bells and whistles. Not much value in that. The last GOOD value I can recall was when you could get a Dan Wesson 1911 for under a grand.
Value aside, I can't wait to get to the top of the queue with Heirloom Precision! Got a unfit frame/slide and a box of parts waiting.....my hair might go grey in the meantime.
