+1 to Big Buckeye, the TRP best in this price range, Sig 1911, SAI Loaded model/Range officer, and Colt railgun would also be my top picks next for cheaper. There are better 1911s to be had but the price is $$$$$.

I would guess that with a 1911 finding one with good bones at a low price can be easily built up to what suits you best as money allows. I have a Springfield 1911-a1 for the past 25 years that hasn't dissipointed me yet.

+1.

Can't beat RIAs for the price. I've bought and sold a few and still own 2.

A few may have quirks when new, but for a low end 1911, their warranty and service is excellent.

I worked at their headquarters here in Nevada a few years ago with the gunsmiths. All returns were not only fixed and fully function tested with 2 mags worth of ammo, but the guns got a ramp and chamber polish as well, no charge, even if the 'problem' turned out to be limp wristing on the buyer's part, which most returns were.

I also saw a few that were OBVIOUSLY messed with or mangled by owners with no clue . . . screwdriver pry marks, hammer gouges, etc. . . . yet the guns were repaired and returned, no questions asked!

I'm a left handed shooter Phil, I need an ambi safety, or A safety that can be changed for a left handed shooter.

Colt Defender. You'd have to change the safety. Springfield Loaded for a full size.

Thumb safeties are not super difficult to do. Don't let that deter your quest.

Thanks from Rich D

When you're fitting a thumb safety to the sear it's easy to go too far, especially if it's your first one. Probably Capona would be better off having a pistol smith fitting an ambi safety to his new 1911.

Thanks from Snyper762 and BigJon

You can get a rock island for less than your lowest price poiint. They are basic pistols so you would have to add the ambi safety. I recently picked one up for 350 lightly used.
My high end 1911 is sai lightwieght champion operator. It is an oustanding weapon. I found it used for around 650
