    Steve, I have narrowed it down to STI, and Taurus. I am a Ruger fanatic but I have to admit there are better deals out there than just the Ruger. Also, this may sound weird (as many of you already figured out, I am totally weird) but I prefer a blued 1911. I don't like the shiny purdy look. That is not to say that I would not own one in stainless, but me preference is a blued pistol. That is just the weirdness in me I guess. :eek:

    Ya, I am glad you got me to look at the STI. I was impressed with how Bobitis was treated with the response from Taurus about the damage on his pistol so I feel like they are reputable. As for the STI, that is a fine pistol IMO. I know I will end up with both.

    Jim, the hardcore blued steel guys call it sissy stainless. I prefer a blued look on the outside and stainless internals.

    The 2 1911s I have are both stainless. The sig has an XO finish that I totally hate. I got the gun used and it already had the scratches from the slide stop not being put back in correctly. It also seems to scratch easily but they are liek scratches you can make with your fingernail then wipe off. the gun itself functions great but I would love to have this gun coated black someday. I dont know what the cose would be as I know I couldnt do it myself and being out of work for 15 months doesnt make it seem like its going to happen any time soon. The ruger sr1911 has a stainless finish that I can live with because I bought it new.

    I've got a few Colt's and they shoot great and I have a friend that has a Kimber and a Rock Island Armory and they both shoot anything you put in them and accurately. So I say get what ever feels right in your hand and "YOU" want.

    So what price range are we talking about Ruger SR 1911 around $750.00, Where do the STI's Sigs and Taurus's come in?

    I think taurus is cheaper than the Ruger, and STI is around $750.00.
