Auto426: I wasn't even referring to poly guns. I was referring to other alternatives, like the CZ-75. When in stock, I can get that for under $500 and the SP-01 for under $600 from czcustom.com, and these are full metal guns, not poly. It's just a tad bit confusing as to why 1911s demand such a high price.

My next handgun will be either a RIA 1911 Tactical in 9mm, or a CZ-75. I can get both for about the same price.
The price of the CZ and the RIA pistols have a lot to do with where they are made. Both are made in countries where labor is extremely cheap, unlike some other guns like Sigs or HK's which are made in countries with labor rates comparable to the U.S.
