Well, I got my Pro Carry for something like $680 OTD a few years back (traded it though, no regrets) and my Warrior for around $1100. Both worked perfectly 100% for me, were accurate and fun to shoot. Still have the Warrior and won't get rid of it. Despite a couple thousand rounds in each neither exploded in MIM failsplosions like the detractors say they will so I'll just count myself lucky and keep shooting my Warrior. That said, all my future 1911's (unless its a double stack, commander, dream gun) will be Dan Wessons. For my money they are the best compromise between price and quality.
