    What is cheapest price a 1911 can go for? Im not just referring to a colt 1911. Just any manufacturer that makes a 1911 style handgun.

    RIA is about the only one you'll find for <$500. Although it's the bottom of the 1911 food chain, I have to admit, most people love them because they still shoot. Accuracy may not match even other production 1911's, but 95% of shooters can't out shoot a Kimber for example. I don't think I'd want to trust it ever day as a go to, but for the price and for what most people need/want for a shooter, it's hard to beat.

    well, my whole reason is just to own something that shoots a 45 acp. Unless theres something cheaper that will shoot that round?

    RIAs are not the bottom of the 1911 food chain...there's still Llamas and Taurus and a fist full of other off brand pistols that aren't near as sexy as a Rock Island.

    I dont consider taurus to be part of the bottom of the barrel. I have a taurus model 66(357 magnum) thats a fine revolver.

    We're talking 1911 pistols here, not revolvers. You do, indeed have a fine revolver.
