New Colts 1911 are very good pistols. However, they are bit more expensive than the competition. RIA, Remington and SW all have good 1911.
On the other, a trigger job would make a good 1911 an excellent shooter.

Nice! I have the same model but I'm .45 ACP. It's my first and only Colt, 1911, and .45. Love it! It's by far my favorite shooting handgun.
