    Since the 1911 pistol is iconic, there must be quite a few members here who either carry-one, or have the big-pistol; in their batteries:

    I would love to buy a workhorse 1911. I don't want a safe queen or one which is crazy expensive. I'd like a shooter, EDC pistol I can customize down the line. Thoughts?

    Look into Rock Island Armory. They make a decent 1911 for the price-point. Many are under $800 dollars.

    Mine is an Auto-Ordnance M1911a1 but I've heard good things about Rock Island.

    Springfield Armory milspec. Plain Jane but just runs. 500-600 bones. Can’t beat that.

    I own a few 1911s (Kimber, Springfield, Norenco) but this 1944 Remington Rand is my favorite!
