Off Thread but on topic: a couple years ago HK hired two 1911 experts and with all their engineering experience & own forge, they missed the mkt. Sig & SW had three different models hitting the shelves, in additions to, all the high end/custom guns.
The only mkt not saturated is the under $6. There is a trade off when the price goes down. A "G" has plastic sights and they are fine w that - try putting plastic sights on 1911....( insert ear plugs & wait for it....... "colorful" response.
My point is you must know what trade offs were made and if you can live w it - fine, if not - then how much will it cost to fix ? Be Honest w yourself - can you do the work yourself ? If no, figure in gunsmith cost. Good news - almost every gunsmith has some experience working w the 1911 platform.
