Suggestions for a full sized 45 acp for under $450

I asked a similar question a little while ago pertaining to a nine millimeter but am now considering a 45, not because I believe one is better than the other but purely for the fact that all of my local gun stores still have the ammo in stock and it really is the only cartridge I've fired from a handgun. Anyways, suggestions would be appreciated

RIA 1911 will do the trick. Or a used 3rd gen smith in .45.

I second the RIA recommendation. Very solid for the price.

If used guns are being considered, I would recommend a gently used S&W Model 4506.

I used to say that the PT1911 was the most tricked out 1911 under $650, but Taurus has come out with their FS model that sells for $400 MSRP, it come with only one mag but thats the only difference.

shoot safe, shoot straight, and have fun

Ruger P90 is a great value.
