i have a SA Loaded Micro Compact 45 that is simply awesome. accurate, reliable and feeds evrthing i have put through it. lightweight and compact with a 3" barrel. downside is, most of the compact 1911's are pricier than there full sized brothers. MSRP on mine was $1370, and i got it for $1299 out the door. some people have asked if it's worth what i paid for it? to me, yes, every penny! it's a great little pistol.
