So, as I was gathering data and deciding what 1911 I was going to buy (as well as gathering cash), I had pretty much decided on a Springfield Loaded. Wife really didn't want me to spend more than that. So, walked into a local gunshop, and what to my wondering eyes should appear but a used SW 1911. Slightly used. Guy had bought it, then was told for his job he needed a new carry gun and that couldn't be it. Had to trade it in a week after he bought it to afford the new carry gun. Been fired once. Got it for $630 - going rate in my area for new is $800-$880. I'm psyched!!!!

Will post my further feelings after a range trip this weekend....

Sounds like a score!

I hope you're as happy with it as I am with my Springfield!


NOTHING fits your hand like a 1911 does!


Now get out and SHOOT it!

Good gravy, that sounds like a fine deal you just picked up!

Enjoy, enjoy...I've only been shooting 1911s for about a year-and-a-half now and I LOVE them.
