If you inherited money and wanted to buy an heirloom quality gun that you will never sell, and that you WILL shoot, and you decided on a high quality 1911 of some variety or other high quality autoloader, which maker and model would you choose and why? Indicate what particular model you would be interested in. I know, we've had this type of thread many times, but manufacturing quality, QC, and offered models change. I included Coonan Arms here even though they are 1911 based and not actually 1911s. I have no experience with guns of any of these makers. I am not married to any particular cartridge, and I'm actually kind of leaning towards a 38 Super, but 45 acp, 9mm, 10mm, 357 mag, and 357 sig are all on the table. Heck let's open it up to 44 mag and 50 AE also. Share your thoughts, and if I forgot a good maker please tell me. Let's say max budget is $4000, so the door is pretty wide open. One gun only though, suggestions of "Well if you can spend that much I'd get two." Also, if there is another autoloader that comes to mind that you think you would consider, feel free to share. You can choose 2 picks. Choose a 1911 maker, and if you think a non 1911 gun should be considered, select that too. By the way, I haven't actually inherited money and I will not be buying anything soon, but I have hit a point in my gun collecting where having more guns is a lot less important to me than having nice guns. However, I don't have gobs of money laying around, so if I drop some serious money on a nice autoloader, I'd like to make a well informed decision. Also, I load my own ammo, so don't worry about ammo cost. For the sake of this exercise, pretend you load also and the cost of ammo is moot.
