CZ75 of whatever type you like best are the option that will actually work 100% out of the box. Other than that there is Remington and RIA.

Cheap, accurate, reliable, pick 2. 2011ís are just plain more expensive most of the basic ones that are decent to me start about 1800-2000

A year or so ago, I bought a nice used STI Guardian off Armslist. I bought it to shoot a monthly defensive pistol match and it has been fantastic. You might keep an eye on Armslist or Gunbroker. Nice used examples show up from timte to time at decent prices.

For instance, here's one on Gunbroker right now at a starting bid of $1350 and no bidders.

CZ doesn’t make a 2011-style pistol, which is the only thing the OP is asking about.

Try looking for a used Para BUT be advised they are hit or missed quality. When they work they are great but they can have lingering problems.

Pretty much, too bad the 75 doesn't really work for me all that well. Can't stand the safety location and size/shape, even the extended ones

I do have a Remington R1 double stack that has run 100% with all ammo I've tried, is reasonably accurate, has an Ok trigger and runs fine with mec gar P14.45 magazines.

It's basically just a Para with a new name, but the finish is pretty weak and rubbed off pretty rapidly in Kydex.

I like it for woods and occasional winter carry.

STI 2011 guns....

Yes, STI 2011 guns can be expensive. I am fortunate to be able to build my own 1911 and STI 2011 guns from parts, and just for my personal use. My STi 2011 9mm "Eagle Style" gun has been accurate and reliable, and I have used it extensively in IDPA competition for close to 10 years, and the gun still runs great! I am in the process of building an STI Guardian style gun....bought an STI 2011 "style" steel frame from an outfit in California for $225 last year, and had it shipped to a gun shop where they transferred the frame to me for a $25 fee.
