I almost want to go buy a sig 1911 because of your post... I love springers too much tho... I do want a railed 1911 and its so hard to find a Springfield 1911 in SoCal, railed Springfields are even harder.
The last one I saw was a milspec for 799... 3 weeks ago.

Glocks are nice since you can take a magazine from the same caliber gun and use it in other size Glocks of the same caliber. Like using a Glock 17 full frame magazine (17 shot), in a Glock 19 compact size(15 round mag), and then also use either of those magazines in the sub-compact Glock 26. So you can interchange the larger magazines with the other guns. I can even slap my 33 round glock mag in my G19 and have loads of fun. It's one of the reasons I bought a Glock 19.
Obviously you're looking for a .45 though, so those Glock models are different numbers in the .45 series of Glocks, but the interchangability still holds true.

I also have a H&K USP compact .45 and compact 9mm. Both are the finest guns I've shot and/or owned (I've had Sigs, Rugers, DEs, ect). Anyone that says they're over priced probably has never owned one or shot one.

Glovewise I use a xxl, or if its high risk gloves xxxl........im curious about the gen 4 g21, how's the fit with the largest bacckstrap?
It is bout the same as the gen 3. Way to wide for my liking short stuby hand and the largest dont mix. Like you refered above like grabbing a 2x4! You must be part cyclops if ya need the monster back on there thatd be a two hander for me

I have a USPc .40 V1 and it is by far one of my favorites. The level of quality in their pistols is amazing. I trust my life to that pistol to go bang every time I pull the trigger. I also have a P2000SK V2 in 9mm that is one of my EDC pistols, same quality and attention to detail.

But I did notice that you have the round in backwards.

Seriously, If you are going to care for it, get a good 1911. If you are going to beat the daylights out of it, get a Glock. These are the easiest for repair and after market options.
Pretty good response, there.
