The RI 1911 is a great starter/entry choice for someone getting their first 1911. As mentioned the finish isn’t awesome and the parts are basic but they run reliably and are affordable… and easy to improve if you chose to do so. CZ is also an awesome platform… my CZ SP01 Tactical is my hands down favorite full sized pistol. I LOVE it. The Glock 48 with the Shield Arms 15 rd magazines are an awesome option for concealed carry. Thinner then a Glock 19 but same capacity with the shield arms mags. I have one with a TLR6 light/laser as a EDC.
So, just to echo what tera said, it depends on the purpose, but any of the guns listed are solid, and I own most of them.
One caveat, the CZ polymer guns may need some break in first. My CZ P10C had a terrible trigger out of the box, which surprised me after all the positives I had heard. After doing some digging on forums, this isnt unknown, but easily fixed. Turns out a couple of gentle passes over the area the trigger meets the frame, followed by a lot if dry fire (use snap caps) and the trigger smooths out drastically. I own several CZs, and it's the only issue I have had with them.
The VP9 is an all around awesome gun. Its one of my house guns, highly recommended them.
The Walther PPQ and PDP are both fantastic. My current carry is a PPQ. Fantastic trigger, great accuracy and the LE packages come with night sights and an extra mag. Got em in 9 and .45, and love them.
I 100% agree with Tera's assessments of RI and Taurus.
My RI 1911 needed no breakin period. In comparison, my friend's Les Baer Custom needed six boxes of ammo before it started running smooth. My RI was worn out right out of the box. That being said, it will do everything I expect it to do, reliably, and if I wanted it tighter, it's good bones to build on.

carbon: Sharpened one of my C/S H&H swords for the first time using an adjustable fixture I made. Went from a little better than butter knife to an even, polished, paper slicing edge. It's a slow process but it does work.
