By reading your OP I'm thinking you have little to no 0 experience. Being you don't know thew pros and cons of "this type of gun"
. If the 100 + years of dependable service can not sway you then I don't think some stories form us will do much.
There's pretty much two types of gun people. The ones that have 1911 loves and those that don't. Sure the don'ts will say they like a 1911 and might even own one but they will usually go for another pistol for their main use. Or they are nice but there are modern guns that can do it as well or better.
Then there are the 1911 faithful. These types will tout the 1911 as the perfect platform. Sure they might own other guns but their 1911 is their daily driver.
The 1911 is a fantastic pistol. But not for the faint of heart. Most the 1911 fans out there have more than a basic knowledge of the platform and how it works. They don't fear taking it down to parts and pieces and looking for ways to make it better and more their own. But at the end of the day 1911 people are well rewarded with a reliable pistol that has accuracy not seen in many other platforms.
The question is...Are you up to it?
Springer makes some of the best 1911's out there in my opinion anyway. If a 1911 if what you want then you will do well in getting one.
