    Default so I have some extra cash...

    And obviously it needs to be spent on a gun... I have been considering getting a 1911, or a revolver. I have been eyeing up the SA GI
    .45, the S&W 627, the Ruger GP100, and a few other 1911's from SA, Colt, among others.

    I like the SA for it's mostly authentic representation of the M1911A1, I love the looks and capacity of the 627, and I like the build of the GP100. I'm truly leaning towards the SA, since I have a Colt revolver already, and I cannot find a 627 in stock anywhere. I want my first 1911 to be as close to an original as possible before moving into the "custom" world. So, if it was your cash, what would you do?

    All the Best!

    I'd probably go with the SA 1911, but FWIW, I had a GI-45, and traded it for a Range Officer. It continually "bit" me, which though a very nice gun, made it unpleasant to shoot.

    Thanks for the input! I actually have hands on the smaller side and have never been bitten by even pocket pistols.

    I have a GI "expert" by Para. Wouldn't buy another. The springer may be a better model as far as the GI pistols go. Love the 1911's by the way.

    Colt 1991a1, Remington r1??? Both are exact replicas of the original 1911-a1

    A world of possibilities... you need to define how much "extra cash" you have, and the basis for your interest in a 1911 - what is your interest, in general terms.

    Intentionally did not address a revolver... if you don't have a 1911, that is where the urgency is.

    Split the difference, go nuts, and get a Springfield Operator.

    Well, I could spend a few grand if I wanted to, but I was looking for something in the $500-1000, but preferably closer to the 500. If I could find the Smith or even a Colt Python, the cash would be in hand immediately. I do not have any 1911's but I have shot a few and I admire their looks.
