    Hi, I'm from the midwest and an older guy. Not new to gun scene, but new to 1911's. I have owned a S&W4506 several years ago and currently own a Glock21SF 45. I am interested in getting a 1911, but funds are small and not sure what would be best bang for buck. I have heard good things about the RIA. Anyone steer me in right directions for a lower priced 1911? trikerider

    Welcome to the FORUM!!! I don't think you can go wrong with the ria for the money. Plus they warranty stuff and are pleasant to deal with. Springer milspec is alittle higher less features though.

    Welcome aboard! I'm glad to see you're a .45 fan; I think the 1911 will be a great experience for you in this caliber. :thumb:
