    just got me a new springfield armory 1911 .45 acp. It has never been fired but apperas to be an old gun!!!!!... in the booklet it talks about a competition in 1988 and it comes in a white springfield cardboard box. I believe it is the home defender model, got it for $550 anyone know anything about this one and did I over pay? I love it so far, sooooo accurate and the forged steel/wooden grips give it a nice look.

    post pics later when I get home!

    My own little slice of Purgatory
    1988 is an old gun? I graduated undergrad that year.

    Of the 45+ guns I own, I think less than 1/4 of them were made AFTER 1988.:neener: What's that make my
    1851 Navy?
    1895 Nagant?
    1917 Eddystone Enfield
    M1 Garand?
    K31 Swiss?
    K98 Mauser?
    so on and so forth

    Anyway, congrats. Nothing like a new to you gun to make you want to do the happy dance.
