1911 Ideas

I'd like to buy a handgun in the coming month or two, and I'm set on a 1911. My only requirements are it has to be American made and close to original GI spec (no fancy target pistols....too poor ). I'm interested in three brands so far, as they're all about the same price.

Auto Ordinance PKZ 1911

Auto-Ordnance | Products | 1911 Pistols



Springfield GI 1911

Springfield Armory



Remington 1911

Remington 1911 R1 Pistol



So far I'm leaning towards the Auto Ordinance. But i really like the look of the grips on the Springfield. I dunno

Thoughts?

I love my Kimber 1911. But I guess that falls into the "fancy" catagory.

BTW, all of these are .45 ACP. I saw a few .38's, .22 lr's, and a few 9mm's but I'm only interested in a .45.

I like the markings on the Auto Ordinance, but i like the grips on the Springfield. Might buy the AO, and put the grips from the Springfield on it. Anyone hear anything bad from AO?

Yah i looked at the Kimbers and Wilson Combats. Nice but out of my price range. I just want a good, basic, starter 1911

DO NOT BUY AUTO ORDNANCE, most of them are jammers I would go with the SPRINGFIELD ARMORY

Yah as far as looks go the Springfield and AO are tied in my book. Is it hollow points that misfeed to the AO or FMJ's do too?

Only reason I'm leaning towards the AO for now is it's made in America...I've been told the Springfield 1911's are produced in Brazil .

The Remington is also made in America....but i can't get over that fugly 1911r1 on the slide

I'd go with the springfield armory. It's a well made pistol for what you pay.

The AO tend to jam with HOLLOW-POINTS & FMJ, BUT if you were to get a great deal on one, Then a GUNSMITH could thoat the barrel or you could drop-in another barrel

Most 1911's will jam with hollow points. CorBon makes a hollow point with a plastic ball in the end so it feeds well. They are not cheap...but is a funeral isn't either.
