Well, those are definitely a step higher up the ladder of excellence and price. But there is a point of diminishing returns, too. Perhaps you can find an indoor range that rents a few different models to try out.
Owned a Les Baer Premier II in the past. Sold it because it was too much gun price wise for how much I shot it. If going Les Baer, I would get one with their carry package. Mine had a decent amount of sharp edges.
Atlantic Guns had several Baer’s in the case last time I went a couple months ago.
Baltimore’s best Pawn usually has a nice selection of standard and high dollar 1911s. Been awhile since I’ve been there though.
