I have put togeather a basic chart of some 40 models of 1911s, below is a link to a google doc.
this might be good for a sticky,

I got most of the info from the company websites but some came from reviews and other internet sources so some may be incorrect.
The info on series 70 vs 80 and forged vs cast frames are not included for most models on the company websites so if anyone see something that is wrong please let me know.
If you have any info to add like corrections, prices or if you want me to add a model just post the info or IM me and I will update the chart.

there is a link to this chart as a google doc on the last line of this post. In the future I would like to have the post be a sticky with just a link to the google doc that I can easily keep updated.

I don’t believe that Dan Wesson uses any cast parts on any of their pistols.
