I think I've got it. I find myself checking the classifieds every week or so for a reasonably priced 1911. By reasonable, I mean under $1000. I own a 1903 Type 1 Colt "Pocket" model in .32 ACP, which is about a 2/3 scale version of a 1911 .45 ACP and I love that little gun, but I just have a craving for a larger .45 version of it. What would be a good 1911 to look for? It doesn't have to be a Colt, but I'm not interested in something like a Taurus. Colt, Remington, or Browning would be preferred. I'm not interested in a foreign made off brand. What about RIA? Is that a quality gun? The S&W E series looks pretty good and the price is under $1000. Decent choice? I have a Beretta, Starfire .25 auto I want to get rid of to help finance the new pistol. I doubt it's had 50 rounds through it and it's LNIB, with the box and literature. I inherited it, so I have no idea what that's worth. Could I get maybe $250 for it? Any thoughts from people who know 1911's would be greatly appreciated.
