Ok, so here is what I want- I want a cheap 1911 that I can build upon as time goes on. Being in college right now I can't afford to go with the Damascus Caspian that I dream of. I have heard of RIA and Springfield as possible choices, and I have even heard good things of Taurus. The main requirement of this build is that I want to be able to have this gun compatible with all of the custom guns like wilson, caspian, and brown. The idea is to be able to add to the gun as I get some spare money to work on it. The configuration I would like to start with is a 5'' 45, a double stack would be amazing.I would like to spend around the 500 mark or less...I know this really limits what I can get but for a first 1911 it is about what I can do right now. I also want the gun to be somewhat accurate out of the box.
