Im a fan of the 1911. Unfortunately, I dont own one. Yet. My goal is to buy one later this year chambered in 45 ACP. Rock Island Armorys GI series is appealing, except for the sights. I want 3 dot sights for a better sight picture. Im also leaning towards a 4.25 barrel. The two models that fit my criteria and budget the best are the Sig Sauer Nightmare(Fastback) and the Ruger SR1911 with a black finish. Im not sure Ill carry a 1911 due the the weight and size. But, if it was good enough for a soldier to defend himself with, it should be good for anyone else.
Thanks for the reply. I hear you on people going nuts lately on buying up guns & ammo that they had never wanted before. I found me a Springfield Armory Mil Spec 1911 back in Feb. at a gun show for under $500. Haven't had any problems with it so far. I did take the time to polish the feed ramp just for S&G's, though.
Youd probably pay at least $150 more for that firearm right now.
No I wouldn't, for $150 more he would have kept it, even right now. I wasn't really looking to buy one that day, but for the price point I decided to go ahead and get it. Got a few magazines for it from another vendor, too.
