    Check out Sarco, Inc., Firearms, Firearms Parts and Accessories look at their shotgun news ads,the sell the RIA 1911's for under $500.00 then figure in shipping and transfer fees at the gunshop it is shipped to.I carried a RIA 1911 compact for several years,It ate everything I stuck in it,and still shoots tight groups when I pull it out of my bag at the range.I bought mine when they were going for $369.00

    I was on the Springfield Armory website the other day and they had quite a few compact .45's. Now i will admit I am not up on the prices or what would be considered a proper weight for a compact .45's but I thought I would toss out another brand you may want to look at.

    Have a 1st year production Colt Officer's Model. It's been worked(had to be in those days)...but I love it. I run Wilson 7 rd'ers and she'll digest the old CCI "Flying Ashtrays"(200gr HP's)...which was famous for choking 1911's.

    While out of the OP's budget range I simply need to give a nod to my Colt New Agent. Eats anything. Nice shooter, but any quality gun is.

    My vote would be for the Kimber CDPII, a lil pricey but I think its money well spent

    I have 2 3" 1911s- A Detonics SS Combat Master MkVI and a Para-Ordnanace WartHog. Both have served me well in my LEO career of 42 yrs. Both met full Agancy requirements w/o issues on 4 quals per yr with duty carry ammo (Fed +P Tactical) and have killed cows,varmints and feral hogs and dogs as needed. Don't carry the Detonics much any more (got it for $750 w 2 mag and extra recoil spring assembly) {BTW it takes 1911 single stack mags fine} after seeing 2 at a Gun Show going for 1.2K! Got the Para for $590 cash w/ 2 mags(10 rds) and have 2 Para P14 mags that fit and feed well too. I maintain all my weapons very well and have had much pleasure in shooting these 2. The Pearce Mag Floor Plate is a very desirable addition to the Wart Hog's mags! It bucks w/o that extra finder hold!

    I had a Kimber UC II, and I finally got tired of trying to figure out the correct magazine/ammo combo to to make it run reliably. Sold it. Concealed great, and shot great, just way too many FTF. By comparison, my Springfield Mil-Spec has NEVER given me a problem...cost less, and is much more reliable. Yeah, it's tougher to conceal, but I trust it, and that is what matters most.

    +100 on the Rock Compact. I carry mine daily and recommend it. Just make sure you grip it like you mean it. I truly believe that a weak grip and flexible wrist causes some of the problems you see in a short barreled 1911. Just my opinion though.
