In the next few months, I’m hoping to purchase a new 1911 style pistol in .45 ACP. I have heard just about every opinion under the sun when it comes to which brand and model is the best. I don’t really trust the guys at the local gun stores, so I thought it might be a good idea to bring this question to the forum. I’ve been leaning towards the Springfield TRP Operator but I don’t want to limit my options yet. I’ve looked at models from Kimber, Sig Saur, Colt and Para Ordnance, and all of them seem to be pretty decent. I’ve also looked at a few pieces from Les Baur and Wilson Combat, but they may be a bit out of my price range right now. I would be open to other brands if you have any suggestions. I’m hoping to get something with some custom upgrades, but nothing too ridiculous. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
