. Keep the HK
Was the work performed by a real gunsmith? If there is no proof, then do not get that gun. You have no idea how that barrel was fitted and SACS may not honor their warranty. Why not save up for a new SA 1911? You will know what you are getting.
"Some gunsmith" is a big caution sign.
If you can afford one gun, you can afford two, for a while at least. If you crave that SA, scrimp, save, and buy it. I bet it will be there for a while.
I did not keep my USP .45 because although it was accurate, reliable, and reportedly durable, it was a poor fit for my hand size and I could not shoot it as well as a 1911.
If it had been a 9mm, I would likely still have it.
You forgot: "Sergeant, hand me that map. I will call in the artillery strike."
My advice is that if you really don't have a preference, I don't see the point. Jim Watson was absolutely right in his advice in that regard. Otherwise, go with what you like and what works best for you, and don't get caught up in the hype either way.

You have a decision to make - they're different guns! I look at the H&K as a perfectly functional tool that does a job wonderfully, and I look at a 1911 as all of that with the capability of absorbing more modifications, should you want to do them.
