I'm toying (toying) with selling some stuff and maybe buying a 1911. They have always fascinated me. Got to use one last summer at the range and was very impressed with groupings, etc. NOW, the scary part. There are so many, many brands out there. Many are way out of my range. I will almost assuredly buy a used one. I'm thinking $500-$600 used. Question: is there a 4 or 4.5" compact in a 1911? I'm not terribly interested in pretty. I am very much interested in tried and true. Opinions, please. Oh, and please, no offense, no interested in Kimber. Not to mention who gets a used Kimber for five hundred bucks?
