yep, there's nothing wrong with ria. i'm still looking hard at their 10mm. retirement and a fixed income are holding me back.They're not getting a lot of love here, but the RIA's are a real value if you're just looking for a fun range toy. I bought mine cheap from someone here, swapped out the ugly factory grips for $10 rubber ones I bought online, and it's been great. Eats everything, never malfunctions, and not half bad looking. Reasonably accurate despite the crappy fixed sights.
I had a DW Guardian. Was very happy with it. Miss that one.Don't own one but Dan Wesson has an excellent reputation.
I own a couple of Ruger and S&W 1911s 1n both 9mm and 45 and haven't had a single issue with them. Have a SA range officer also it's a 9mm but it's not given me any trouble either.
I do own Ruger
OP you can get a lot of 1911 for that amount. Some is a matter of preference rather than quality.Hi all, am looking for a 1911 recommendation. Ballpark in the $1k-$1200 range. Looking for something which won’t need work custom work and will be good to go for a while... Thanks, John
How do you like the Emperor Scorpion? Have you had a chance to shoot it?Agreed. Have about 25K rds thru mine and it’s a tank. The night sights are def getting dim now (8yrs old maybe) and will replace them soon, otherwise have only replaced the springs about 2 yrs ago and had a trigger job done on it. Can’t kill it. While replacing the springs I also added (wanted to try) a full length guide rod on my black TacOps. I really didn’t notice any difference with it (guide rod) and prolly was a waste of money but I’ll keep it for spare parts.
Just bought another one last week. Sig 1911 Emperor Scorpion.

Not yet. Been a very busy holiday season and still dealing with injury to my dominant hand as well. I’ll get around to it eventually.How do you like the Emperor Scorpion? Have you had a chance to shoot it?
I have it on my bucket list and might pick one up when 2019 bonus shows up
Hypo-1911itis is a real and dangerous condition. Please seek medical care immediately.I’m down to only two 1911s, a mid-80s Colt Lightweight Officers and a Randall A131. I’ve owned, oh, five? Six? All different manufacturers.
I’ve never been disappointed in any of them, but the ones I’ve still got are my keepers.
