Here Are The ‘Top Ten’ Most Reliable 1911 Handguns Out There

I know that you guys are probably really tired of me talking about 1911’s, but hey, I’m the editor and I get to write about anything I want. Truth be told, from the age of 18, I was raised on the tried and true 1911 when I enlisted in the U.S. Army almost 50 years ago.

In fact, I’ll go so far as to say, I’d rather have a good 1911 than any other handgun out there right now.

From 50 meters or less, this pistol will put a real damper on anyone’s day, it has a habit of putting the enemy on the ground and you don’t need 10 rounds at rapid fire to do it.

And ‘yes’, I own one (that’s obvious) and when I go to bed at night, it is right beside me in my nightstand, so anyone stupid enough to try and break in to my house in the middle of the night won’t ever do it a second time.

The iconic 1911 has been weaved into American history for well over a century. With their smooth trigger pulls, comfortable ergonomics, durability, and accuracy, 1911’s have proven themselves from battlefields to the range and competitions.

They’re robust, reliable, and classically styled. It’s no wonder why they’ve been collected and revered in American gun culture and remain popular to this day.

With the amount of 1911 pistols on offer today, there is a valid question certainly to be asked. Which are the most reliable 1911 pistols for the money?

So, the producers of the video decided to dig deep into this topic in order to find the answer.

They scoured the internet and narrowed down a collection of what they believe to be the most reliable 1911 handguns for just about any budget.

If there were some that didn’t get mentioned but you think they should have, let us know in the comment section below. So, without further adieu, let’s get this party started!!
