Default Sell Chiappa 1911 and get GSG??

Greetings all, newbie here!

I have the Chiappa 1911 and I honestly have no beefs with it. THEN the GSG comes out, so should I off the Chiappa and pick up the GSG?
I know i'm going to take a hit on the Chiappa value, but if the GSG IS that much better....???

Thanks all

Howdy! I have never had the pleasure of owning or shooting a Chiappa 1911, but I do have some experience with a GSG 1911, and it is one very nice handling, shooting and solid functioning .22lr pistol, IMHO. YMMV

Both have had issues, so if you've got a good one of either, STICK WITH IT!!

I also make it a habit to never sell a properly-functioning firearm unless the cash offer is too good to pass up.

The GSG is light years above the Chiappa.

German vs Italian manufacturing. Nuff said!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
