    i am looking at a 1911 this year in 45acp full size.
    i think i have it narrowed down to a new blk valor or a wilson cqb.
    any suggestions between the two?

    Currently have another Baer on order that I hope will be ready in the spring.
    After that I'm giving serious thought to taking the first 1911 I ever bought, a SS Series 80 Gov't Model and using that as a base for a custom build.
    But where to begin..................

    I have a black Vbob. Granted, it's my first 1911, and by a slight margin the most expensive 1911 I've shot... but it's far and away the smoothest, easiest shooting one I've shot, which is to be expected. You'll find little love for them here, but I'm leaning a black Valor for my next 1911. I like it that much, and the finish is STOUT. Baer has an appeal to me and I'll have one one day, but I think I'll do another Valor first. Ideally, I'd like to keep saving and get a GI No-Name, but that will make it a whole lot longer before I get a gun! Honestly, I think you're going to get an excellent gun once you get into this price range. Get what you like, barring the rare problem gun, it will shoot great!

    I'm torn between a "No Name" or a "US property marked" Springfield, but probably more realistically a mis-matched Remsport or Colt to fit my budget. To bad it will probably take most of the year to save those kind of firearm funds at the moment.

    Ammo,lots of ammo and range time for 2012 for me.

    I have been blessed to get the pistols I have always wanted,and now is the time for me to start shooting them.
    I never thought I would be able to afford a 2k pistol let alone 6 of them.

    I need to get my money's worth out of what I own rather than buy more firearms.(I will put a caveat to that depending on what CJ may have to offer ! :lol: )

    But that's just me ...... :grin:

    I would get the SA hi-cap, only about 100$ more and you get a forged slide/frame instead of cast, also lifetime warranty and they answer your email unlike RIA

    I've gotten hooked on rifles again......:frusty: Likely to sell off a couple and roll that cash into a scope.... rifle.... well, you know. :der:

    However, I'm sure I could find a place for another full size 1911. Just have to see what catches my eye.

    I agree. I do have a few on order, that will land in 2012 (Guncrafter CCO No Name, SA Pro and S&W 686 Talo), but I really need to start stocking up on ammo again. Besides, toys are no good without batteries. :lol: I do have a few on the wish list though. Baer TRS, Ed Brown (can't make up mind on model), CZ75? and possibly a Wilson Stealth?

    Almost finished paying off the Volkmann, have the Guncrafter CCO coming, and I ordered a Nighthawk Falcon/Predator build. Been on a list with DRC for a Pro over a year now, but that thing is like waiting on a Unicorn. I am done with my 1911 collection after that and probably 2012 gun purchases.
