John Browning knew what he was doing when he developed this automatic over 100 years ago, and the engineering still stands the test of time.
This is the time to own a part of American military history. These five 1911 models are some of the best .45 Automatic Colt pistols that you can buy.
1. The Kimber Custom II
This is one of the best entry level 1911s, and has many of the custom features you would expect from an after-market pistol.
Its match-grade steel five-inch barrel and bushing work like silk to produce the accuracy that these .45s are famous for, and it is modestly priced for those just breaking into the 1911 market.
