    I've got the bug for a stainless 1911, either 4" or 5". I'm leaning toward a Springfield Loaded, because I want one with the shinier finish, not matte like the Kimbers. Looking to spend Under $1000. What do you recommend? Has to be the shiny finish.

    No, I just think the matte finish is ugly. I don't want it polished, just plain.

    Your idea of the Springfield Loaded series is going to be hard to beat. I had the entire series at one time and the commander sized gun was a great gun. A lot of features for the money and well made.

    I recently picked up a Remington R1 (plain jane, not the 'enhanced' or 'tactical' version) and it shoots lights out.... bushing to barrel to slide fit is quite good, and you can find them for $500 or so now and then.

    It has 3 dot sights, but everything else is gi-spec.

    I've ignored 1911's for years. Now I have a Kimber Ultra Crimson Carry II. I may just have to buy more!

    Springfield seems to build a nice 1911. Have you looked at some of the Sigs? I've seen them around for less than a grand in the local shops.
