    I own a single 1911. And it's a Colt.
    Wait, what? Both mine have full-length recoil rods, so they field strip in a couple seconds without tools, and I can break one down to it's components, aside from the grip bushings and the sights, in about five minutes if I have a small nail.

    If you are comparing the 1911 to a Glock, it is a major pain in the ass to strip and clean. If you are used to Berettas and 1911s, it is relatively easy.

    I can compare it to a 229, I may be less susceptible to ass pain than the general public.

    Wait... I mean.. ****.

    I can break down my S&W officers 1911 without any tools at all. Easy to clean and break down.

    I just ran across a listing for a Colt Wiley Clapp Government Model for relatively cheap.

    http://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/p....+SER+70+45ACP Again, as far as Colt's go, I think this is one of the best values for money. It's build using a Series '70 for a base gun, so it doesn't have the Series 80 firing pin block that some like to hate on so much, and it has most of the contemporary upgrades (lowered and flared ejection port, beavertail grip safety, enhanced combat sights, high grip cut under trigger guard, front strap checkering, and beveled magazine well).

    A few things to keep in mind for the first time 1911 buyer:

    1. Forged v.s. cast v.s. MIM - there are endless debates on Internet gun forum on this topic. Most purists prefer forged slides and frames and parts that are either forged or machined from bar stock. This is one of the areas that will drive up the price of any 1911 pistol, as cast and MIM parts are a lot cheaper to manufacture.

    2. Made in the USA v.s. imported - this is largely a matter of personal preference, but if you want a pistol that is 100% manufactured in the USA, it will be more expensive.

    3. pre-Series 80 v.s. Series 80 v.s. Schwartz Firing Pin Safety - like forged v.s. cast, there is endless and fierce debate over firing pin safeties. Critics argue that they are unnecessary and many argue that they screw up the trigger pull. Others argue that unless one is going for a trigger pull under 4lbs, that most shooters can't tell the difference and that the added safety is worth the added complication in diss-assembly and re-assembly.

    4. Features - since the 1911 is over 100 years old, the list of modifications to the original basic design is extensive. Typically, the more modifications, the higher the price. When buying a 1911, one should try and go with what features fits one's particular needs and preferences.

    I got a grip safety, and thumb safety. Very safe gun. Have to disengage those two and then pull the trigger.

    I like the longer thumb safety on mine, it was a pro series. but for the price I got it at, it was a steal as many of the features were included that would have had to have been added later by a smith.

    Now this is funny. I was just looking at this gun last night.

    I bought a $600 Springfield Mil-Spec a couple months ago. Next I'm going to throw almost all the parts in a shoe box and replace them with $1,500 worth of other parts I bought, investing countless hours in the process. Not exactly the easy way to do things but I'm more excited than a kid on Christmas. I've been waiting a while to do this. I plan to make this one my baby.

    Yeah, I've found a couple of ranges that have a few of the 1911's I want and some you've recommended. So, I'm going to go test shooting and see what I like.
