    Thanks for all your thoughts, it looks pretty obvious on the winner in the poll.....does not surprise me much. I have always wanted to try one of the Para 1911's, I do like their appearance and they have always looked well made. But I already know about the great Springfield service and the way they back up their products, that is hard to pass up !! I still wanted to get a feel on what the overall opinion on the two 1911"s would be. It was not even close !!! I should really stick with Springfield Armory, they are just 35 miles from my house, located in Geneseo, Illinois................. I have always loved all of their other handguns, just never owned one of the 1911's.........

    Do you own one of the Rock Island armory tactical 1911's..?? I have seen them. The more expensive models do have a pretty nice finish on them.

    My Springfield GI has been very good to me so far. I have to admit I haven't shot a Para though, but based on my experience I recommend the GI.
