    good morning,
    A friend of mine has a High Standard compact crusader 1911 and he wants to trade me his handgun for one of my rifles, now I have a gun I have not shot much at all , it's the infamous rem mod 710 el-cheapo in 270 ( I got it used several years ago in another trade ) .

    His 1911 I know is not "top shelf" fodder but I believe it is in the Rock Island family of guns, made in the Philippines in good condition.

    So what say ye , good trade or not ?. :uhoh:

    Thanks and have a good day....:evil:

    Trade into an affordable "not top shelf" compact 1911, for a less expensive "not top shelf" rifle (that you don't really use)?

    Sure, absolutely would trade.

    I've never shot a Rock Island 1911 that I didn't like. I'd take that trade in a heart beat.

    Trade, unless the rifle has some nice glass on it. If so, remove it, then trade. :D

    I fully regret trading my High Standard Compact Crusader that I had. It ran flawlessly and was very accurate. Armscor makes good guns and backs them up well! Good luck.
