Recommend a 1911 that has....
#1
I'm looking for a new 1911. Nothing wrong with my Tisas (still 100% reliable and very accurate), but my girlfriend said she'd get me a new 1911 for my bday in a few months. I want something that has...

1) a 4" or 4.25" barrel
2) Novak type sights
3) "upward" beavertail
4) the ability to hold 8 round mags without using a mag sleeve
5) a price of below $800
6) preferably stainless steel, but doesn't have to be.

So far I'm leaning towards the Ruger SR1911 commander, but I didn't know what other options I also had.

I like that, but I also can't find that on the ARMSCOR/RIA website. Is that an older or discontinued model?

Armscors website sucks. It rarely has everything listed. They came out with the 10mm Tactical II and it wasn't listed on the site for quite a while.

you already have a good working pistol. you would be better served to have her get you a reloading out fit with powder and primers. and a few thousand cast bullets.

In my opinion you can't go wrong with a Ruger. I have both the fullsize 1911 and commander size. Both are well made and will outlast me. My kids have each called dibs on one of them.

Magnum Research has a nice commander length 1911 firing your criteria plus other features.
