I'm in the market for a 1911 style auto in a 45. What in ya'll minds is the best 1911 out there for the money. Not looking to get into a big debate but want some examples and personal experiences. I open to all 1911's. I'm sorry i should have given more information on what price range and so on. It was 3 in the morning and at work when i thought about it. My price range is 600 to say 1200. I will be shooting the wildbunch for cowboy action shooting and can't have all the bells and whistles that some of the other shooting disiplines have. It will be shot with a light load with a lead bullet. Don't know what grain or load yet. I looked and the Sti and like that. Who sells them around the Laplace area. Can do a little traveling to BR, Slidell, etc.
