Any 1911 Fans?

I want to purchase a 1911 .45 Cal. for the purpose of keeping as my collectors piece. One that I can shoot maybe a few times a year, but not even a quarter as much as my M&P. Which manufacturer holds the award for the best 1911? What model 1911 would you buy? Thanks!

Don't get me wrong, I love S&W, but with 1911s in my price range, I pick Springfield. The grip safety timing issues that may come up with a grip safety/firing pin block leave me cold. That goes for Kimber, too, because they pretty much broke my habit in that regard. That is MY experience and opinion and 1911 shooters tend to be as fierce and opinionated as Glock people, so that may not matter to anyone.

I've got a TRP and Parked Champ that I have had tweaked to just the way I like, and my next 1911 will be a SA, too, unless I hit the lottery and can get a Nighthawk..okay, or maybe a S&W Performance Center 1911...

One of the guys I shoot with bought and got rid of a Taurus. Said the quality was not acceptable-especially inner parts. I know he had some feeding issues, that was the beginning of the end for him on that, don't know what the last straw was. Any company can put out a lemon sometimes, but I personally would put the same money toward a Springfield.
