IMO you always get what you pay for. Buy right and buy once. I would suggest the Dan Wesson V-Bob for around $1,500. Is it expensive? Yes and no. Yes because $1,500 is a lot of money but no because that puts it in the middle ground for 1911s.
In buying the V-Bob you get a great high quality 1911 that you won't have problems with, is more accurate then you or me, is built with top of line componets so you won't have to throw more money into it, and if you decide to in the future you can carry it concealed without a problem.
