    Next year I’m going to buy my first 1911 and I need advice. I’m not a very rich guy and I’d like to be as cheap as possible. Also, I’m a big WWII history buff and I’d like to get a GI style model that looks closely like the WWII model and it functions just like it and is reliable. What do you all recommend?

    RIA 1911. I would 10/10 recommend it. Thing is a TANK.

    I have one of these, never had any issues. In my opinion best 1911 for the cost.

    Rock Island GI series in 9mm, 45, or 10mm.

    I have the 10mm. Shot it last week out to 200 yards. Got 5 out of 8 shots on target. Solid gun. Plain as Jane. Trigger is about 7 lbs. Lifetime warranty. Great customer service. Price: $350 to $420. Usually $380.

    Avoid ATI, Chiappa, Taurus, Kimber, and other no brand names. Turkish 1911 are relatively new so no info on them yet. Other good option is Ruger, S&W, Browning, and Remington. The best is Colt and Springfield. The ultra elite is Dan Wesson, Nighthawk, Les, and STI. The king of 1911 is the 2011.

    Depending on your budget RIA makes a few you might be into. If you can find a used Ruger sr1911 you should look at it.

    These are made by Armscor, the Rock Island guys, for Cimarron and are intended to look like WWI era 1911’s. Even the slide marking are very reminiscent. Probably not as comfortable to shoot as a modern gun without the big beaver tail and nicer sights, but it’s accurate to the era and affordable.

    If your on a budget don’t get a 45 it’s a pricy round get a 9mm RIA it’s a little cheaper and 9mm isn’t as expensive
