STI makes fine pistols. Their Spartan, Filipino built with US lock work has a good reputation.
The Trojan, all made in Texas, is the next step up.

I'd go for a Sentry, but it is more expensive... nearly half as much as a Wilson

I'm 18 months and about 2k rounds in with my Springfield Range Officer, it keeps getting better

My buddy has a high end Kimber (Gold Match, I think) that runs great, he has about 800 rounds through it.

My $0.02

There is no end to the miriad of 1911's out there. Mostly really good stuff, but a few marginal. I own a couple Kimbers, an S&W, some Springfields, some original GI stuff, etc.. and they all are good guns. I stay away from the foreign copies and the cheaper want-a-bees from this country. A quality firearm will hold it's value or appreciate in value , and there are few things in this world you can count on to do the same.
Buy a higher end 1911 and you will be happier.
