    Currently in the market for my first one, and i figured going used i may find a better quality pistol. So if any has one or a good recommendation as to where the best place to acquire one is, i would greatly appreciate it.

    You can buy a Citadell or a Rock Island 1911 new for that much.Your local shops must have one or the other.

    The ria pistols have been getting great reviews. Good pistol for a decent price.

    Yes, the Rock Island Armory (RIA) are an excellent value. Excellent reviews, excellent customer service and a great price.

    Ya I'm highly considering the RIA. It's cost effective and easy to costumize which is something I want to do to learn more about 1911's.

    If I was looking for a 1911 in that price range and was considering a new one, I'd buy another Ruger SR1911. I believe you can't beat that gun in that price range.
