Since Volt has only given two inputs that never answered you, I'll try. I own two 1911's. My first was the SA 1911 RO Elite in .45 and was purchased with stimulus cash. Really enjoy this pistol and if it ever 'dies' I'll probably get another. Pro: good heft, accurate and a real joy to operate. My second was my Ronin in .45 -- Same answer. If you want to know which is 'prettier', its the Ronin. The RO Elite was around $750 and the Ronin around $600. I don't carry either and neither is my CCW. They are both toys for the range. My daily carry is my P365 and I alternate with Ruger LCP Max. Hardest part (and it's not hard) is keeping up with ammo in three sizes (not counting 22LR).Pros and cons of each springfield 1911 under 1000 bucks and why. Which one would you go with....
I also have a RO Elite in .45. It's a great weapon but had been discontinued by Springfield. It has an ambi safety and good sights IMO, front slide serrations, a pic rail and G10 grips. No real downside with maybe the exception that the ejector is not pinned. No worries though, if it fails Springfield will repair it under warranty.My first was the SA 1911 RO Elite in .45
$ 4000 for what? A double stack 2011 vary from less than $500 to many thousands of dollars. Yes 1911 are obsolete as should be many manufacturers who build (or import European or South American pistols and pretend they are US production) and sell third rate pistols.Plus who's gonna spend 4000 dollars for tranny looking double stack 1911?
Oh horse crap! The gun you mentioned costs nearly 4000 dollars. There's nothing wrong with a 1911, I have two. As far as your claim about third rate firearms, again, nonsense. You don't know what you're talking about. I know, why don't you pay attention to what happens in your little police state down under and we Americans will worry about our country.$ 4000 for what?

Lol, you mention the 2011 which I look up and post it with price and now you deflect and lie. As far as police state, that's what it is down there. Now unless I'm mistaken and you don't live in Australia, then I'm wrong and apologize. But very few countries have anything resembling true freedom like we have.Why not show the CZ range, Shadow 2 (look up the price it may surprise you) is as good as many. However that would destroy your post.
If you have no idea what you are talking about say so, what garbage is this about a police state here? Stick to what you pretend to know about 1911 and leave it at that.
I will agree,I would say it depends on what you plan to use it for.
