Most mid-range, semi-customs are off-list. In the realm of production-based pistols, the Ruger SR1911 and Springfield Range Officer immediately come to mind. Both are nice pistols.

Would be easier just to look at the roster for the 1911s that are on it.

Once you know that, it's easy...everything else is not.

At $1,500, I'd grab a Springfield TRP, maybe a Dan Wesson Pointman, or a Les Baer.

+1

But if you want it bad enough, 1911's are easy to SSE

Too many offlist 1911's would be worth getting! But here's a couple that might be worth picking up.

S&W "E" series

Dan Wesson - A bit over your budget but in my opinion would be awesome to have: Valor, Specialist

Sig Sauer - I know you said not interested in these but take a look at the TacOps in either Sig slide or Traditional slide. One of the best bang for the buck in my opinion.

Springfield - Range Officer

Colt - Wiley Clapp Edition Commander, Rail Gun, Special Government

almost anything off roster is worth getting, plenty to choose from at your price range

With $1500 to spend, I'd buy any Dan Wesson I could find!

+1 for the Colt Wiley Clapp. I was fortunate enough recently to pick one up for $1300 and I have to say that it is one nice piece. I also have a Nighthawk Custom T3 and the Clapp stacks up against the T3 pretty darn well. Pretty awesome at less than half the price.
