I might buy this one. $530
What do yall think?
Used, but not much.
but hell yeah. They are great. $530 is a great price for this one. Do you know the owner?
is a member at another gun forum.
I've not met him. Phone and pm only.
Just curious, because it's best to know how it's been treated/used/maintained. Did he give you pictures of the parts with it stripped? And the bore wear? But even if it's been heavily used, I'd say it's still a good price.
that didn't work.
Tried to add another picture.
this is exactly how mine started out. I dumped way too much $$ into mine, but it's my favorite range pistol.
exactly what I had in mind.
I got a neighbor who ranks nationally with race guns. Between his "know how" and hydraulic Dillon setup, I might go broke.
depending on what you do to it. I've put more money into mine than the gun costs, but my trigger gives me a hard on. I would have saved money if I had bought it with all of the bells and whistles straight from the factory.
It's definitely a good 1911 for the price. If you compare the other models in that price range, I would rather have the mil spec springer.
I love mine.
value will never go down.
I pick that up faster than a fat chick running to the all you can eat buffet.
this looks to be a nice piece. As shiny and smooth as that stainless is, it is pretty obvious it hasnt been mistreated or abused. I would be willing to bet it hasnt been in a holster much if at all. I put my Hard Baller in a Galco and noticed fine wear scratches immediately. I have posted pics of my gun here and Clint has seen it and fired it so you all know it is a beautiful piece. The gun in the pic above is even shinier and finer polished than what I have so it would certainly show poor handling.
S field 1911 looks like a nice gun
My bro picked it up today. I mail him a check tomorrow and pick it up from him next trip south.
I'm sure you will love it.
how many miles thru it?
Vaquero,now if i could get cheap ass ^^^^^ to send me the 22 rifle,we'd both have a new toy to shoot hahahaha!
Very nice piece for sure. That is a keeper and as pointed out it will only go up in value over time. I'd keep it stock beyond sights and maybe a trigger job to smooth it out. Though it will smooth out on it's own after some rounds are put through it.
Hell, I'd carry it for that matter!
I do a bunch of 1911 Springer work. Just Fluff & Buff Micro polish, Trigger slide & action slick up's, slide lapping & Micro polish. With the exception of Mag capacity, & bad nerves concerning
Cocked & locked condition 1,Don'
t hear any complaints From any customers or my self on this piece.
What I will say to yo you is this. As with any piece..... Practice, Practice, Prentice. This single action 1911 is a totally different animal than anything you have ever fired or carried before.
Practice, Practice Practice. Take Care & Be Safe Amigo... Give me a shout.... Larry
