    Not a big fan of 1911s even though I have four 1911 style pistols. I guess my favorite is my latest, the GSR SIG Arms Revolution RCS .45 ACP. 4" barrel, stainless steel:

    The Remington I had the chance to examine looked pretty solid. The owner was very pleased with it.

    The Springfield a 4 inch has performed flawlessly with anything I feed it. Has integrated feed ramp as the 3.5 inch Remington that I just picked up in March. It has had some issues with ftf due to too tight an extractor. Also the drop safety plunger is stuck in the up position and I can't remove the extractor to make mods. (damn series 80) Since I don't have a sight pusher or a good brass punch I have not removed the sight to solve the issue. It is getting better, just needs some tweaks like many 1911s. I bought it because I really like the rounded butt, who doesn't, and would like to carry it.
    The ATI, well what can I say. My first 1911 and yet it made me a pretty damn good 1911 'mechanic'. I don't want to disrespect educated Gunsmiths. I studied everything I could find about 1911s and got this thing running dependably. It is just a bit heavy being all steel, but now has an excellent trigger and is very accurate.

    Some of us don't like bobtailed 1911's. I don't like the look (especially) or the feel. Maybe it something for those with smaller hands.

    But if someone else prefers them, more power to them.

    I will profess that the round bottom, as opposed to the bobtail, is a bit more comfortable in my hand.

    My first 1911 was an ATI. Outstanding gun for the price. I love shooting it, and I can’t wait until my Ruger gets broke in like it. It’s still a little stiff, while the ATI is like butter!

    I thought about that one, I didn’t like the roll marks.
    I ended up just getting a Springfield Milspec. I have owned other Springfield pistols and loved them.

    Yeah, they definitely take away from the mil spec feel I wanted. But it was $320 I think on a Black Friday sale!
