    Was wondering what you guys thought was the best place online to buy a 1911 at the best price? I know there has to be some hidden gem websites out there

    I don't use just one I check several and go with the best price.
    That said I've usually found
    Buds
    Grabagun
    Pretty fair on prices.
    Plus it depends on what brand 1911 you're after.
    GunBroker can even be the best price at times.
    Especially for Dan Wesson.

    1911 Addicts is the premier sight for great deals & great sellers.

    Our classifieds section is top notch. Great deals from folks that know how to take of their pistols!

    I have yet to buy a new 1911. Sometimes find them never shot or very low round count. To me, that is just as good (provided you buy from someone you can trust to accurately represent the gun) Everyone is different but for the savings vs new works well for me.

    For new, shop around, for used, I would trust the forums here more. I would not buy from Gunbroker due to their lack of enforcement on add accuracy, but that is just me, I know they sell a lot of guns.

    DW Valor commander, Vbob, or A2 if want steel would be my choice. DW guardian Or Vigil if want alloy lightweight in your price range or if you can find a Valkyrie commander I would buy that. I don’t think any of them can be beat on the price range.
    Check with our sponsors on here I Know Dan at BBP is a DW dealer.

    I’ve purchased a few very nice guns on gunbroker.com without any problems.
    That said I do my do diligence in checking out the sellers rating and exchange a few emails prior to any commitment.
    Find out if seller accepts returns if not satisfied and an agreeable payment method up front first.

    I will say that the finest looking specimens one could ever imagine have been right here!
    1911s and many others as well.

    If you don't see what you want listed... do what I did here 2 days ago. I posted a "Want to Buy" and spell out exactly OR generally what you want. Guys here may have it and willing to sell even if they hadn't listed it.
    An Addict had EXACTLY what I wanted..... we did the deal.... and I'm a Happy Camper!

    I have bought used from this site. I have found GrabAGun has some great prices on new guns and I have bought a bunch off Gunbroker.
