Really depends on what we are talking about. I have a nice Taurus Homeland 1911 that came with Crimpson grips. I paid more for this gun but it was still "cheap" compared to the Kimber or S&W 1911's I have. I really like the PT1911 nice gun for the money.Yeah but the para warthog I got at
Buds for under 500 so... You're right more like middle price range. But still a good gun for the money, or bang for the buck. Anything under 300, I consider to be in the save your money for something better range. The P14-45's are more in the 700 range. My millennium PT145 was just about 400. The P10-45 is much nicer for 100 more.
