    Very hard to beat the competition models, I have three of them. Most gold cup features including match barrel for couple hundred dollars less.

    The Rock Island Armory 1911's are great guns for the money. Nothing fancy and you can get anything from a standard G.I. 1911 to one with a tac-rail. Here's the link to them: https://armscor.com/firearms/ria/

    Local gun store to me has this one:

    https://www.gunbroker.com/item/847979499

    I purchased a new Colt Lightweight Commander in 45 ACP there a couple of weeks back for 800 + tax. I see no reason your friend can't find a Colt 1911 model ~ 1K.

    I understand that we all love Colt, but how about Sig or Kimber

    The Springfield Armory Mil Spec Model, SKU # PB9108L can be found for under $650 which leaves a lot of money for ammo and accessories. It's a good place to start. They have a match grade barrel and bushing and receive high marks from most owners. Here is a link:

    I had a Kahr Auto Ordnance M1911A1 and while it was not a Colt it was a pretty nice pistol. The one I had was basically a GI reproduction. I'm not up on price but these are probably in the $600.00 price range for a new one.

    With the 1911 type pistols there are many options and with a 1K budget I'd be looking at the new Colt Classic.

    I love my RIA. They are sub600, fit and finish is great, and tight as a <generic methaphone based on your personality here>. As mentioned above (and a few other times) I got mine in 10mm after Shooter13 convinced me it was a solid choice for the buck

    RIA is one of those companies you almost wish didn’t exist...because they sell a gun that, for all intents and purposes, is every bit as good as many offerings that cost 3x as much. It makes it dang hard to justify buying anything else simply for the sake of bragging rights. Bragging rights that are quickly revoked when your buddies RIA groups just as tight as your Colt. I’ve never paid more than $2,000.00 for a 1911 and have owned/own offerings from Colt, Kimber,S&W, Springfield, RIA and a few others. I’ve had both good and bad experiences with all of these manufacturers. But if I were back in the market for an entry level 1911, RIA would be my first stop.

    RIA sells Philippine made 1911 pistols made from castings...apparently very good castings. At my LGS they sell a number of RIA and have had few if any problems with them. They dropped the Kimber line of 1911s due to many warranty problems. They rarely sell a Colt so no real feedback. They seem to have decent luck selling Springfield Armory products.
