Nothing wrong with Savage. Had a 10FP many years ago with a Sharp Shooter trigger. It was a 1/2 moa gun. The options and price are close to the LTR.
Again, the biggest difference with the XCR is the finish and trigger. If those options are not that important, your better off with either the LTR or PC. Both will be less expensive than the XCR. Yet, either should be less than a MOA shooter.
It's hard making a choice these days. We are fortunate enough to have lots of quality guns available to us. When I was growing up one of the best 1911's was a Colt Gold Cup, so I bought one. Next up was a Colt Python. Today, there are tons of great 1911's, ect. You need to get started somewhere. Flip a coin between any of the 3 you mentioned and I'm sure you'll be happy with what you end up with. However, you'll always be left wanting the ones you didn't choose.
