Not on the list but I would probably scrape up a bit more and buy an STI RangeMaster.
Barring that I would look at another Colt to go with my Gold Cup.

I would do one of two things. Either go with a Springer loaded, and use the rest of the money for ammo, mags, etc. Or save up just a bit more, and get a Springer TRP. Just my opinion.

I had to go Sigma. But with that kind of cheese, you could step up to the new SD.

For $1600, I may consider selling you "The Worlds Greatest Sigma"™.


P.S.
I will throw in a box of ammo.

New Colt or Springer...any of the other choices just would not work for me. Then between those two I'll look for the best deal.

Perhaps consider either a Remington R1 or maybe a new SA Range Officer and some ammunition and magazines.

Thats what I did when I bought my series 1 Kimber SIS. $800 and the finish wasn't even worn off inside the slide rails.
10,000 rounds and 15 months later and still no problems whatsoever.

Damn. I don't think I can answer this tonight. I need to think. I must kneel before the Altar of Browning and seek the Wisdom of the Master.

$1200?

Free and clear?

1911!

Not a Nighthawk?

Hmmm......

After much reflection and tossing of the bones there is only one true and honest answer ..... put it in the bank until you have enough to buy a Nighthawk.

I'm happy with my Kimber compact. Hasn't coughed yet. Plus the Lovely Mrs Freefall bought it for me.
