Stopped by my LGS on the way home from work tonight, and there it was, bottom shelf, out of the casual viewing of the rubber-neckers. They sold it 2 months ago new, and the fella swapped it back in for a rifle. Not even a box of shells thru it. Pick it up tomorrow, of course, had to check with the wife. She said "get it", so I did. $650.00 out the door, in the box, with all the stuff it comes with. I've always wanted a 1911, and listening to all of you talking about this one, made the jump.

My first 1911, mine was $699.99/Tax $43.40=$743.39 no complaints with the price, but you did rather well.

Have you been able to get it out of your hand yet:D
It is nice.

Good for you! Three weeks ago I bought a new one for under 600.00 and I have close to 1000 rounds through it without even a hiccup!

:eek:
The reason I traded that 1911 for the rifle is that I discovered significant flaws in the barrel making it unsafe to fire. But, I hope you enjoy the gun.........








;)
...........just kidding, you got a great gun. My SR1911 is my best and favorite handgun and I hope you enjoy yours as much as I do mine.
