So i want to buy 2 1911's. one for me to build up over time into a nice gun. One for my dad hes more of a point and shoot guy been helping me out with my home remodel and he deserves something nice since he wont take any money from me. I really only have about 1000 dollars to do this with. I know thats asking alot but I'm hoping you guys and gals can point me in the right direction. Just to be clear I dont need some super tactical tricked out race guns. I just want reliable guns that would be a good foundation for a build. I was looking at RIA any other companies I should consider? Is RIA a good foundation for a build?
