I've seen several mentions of folks that would like a 1911 but can't pay premiums for them. This may interest you. For those interested in 1911s at a good price, I have an IAC/Tisas 1911. Fully series 70. I've had mine for 3 years now and it has been exceptional. $369 NIB!!! http://www.gunsinternational.com/IAC-1911-A1-45ACP-PISTOL.cfm?gun_id=100489207 From day one it has always shot right to POA. I keep it heavily greased and shoot it a lot. The ONLY ammo issues I've had were when I let my handloads run just a tad long. If I keep them tight at the 1.200 COL, it's flawless! $369 NIB. Do some reading on it and I think if you're looking for a 1911 deal, this one will fill the bill nicely!
