Its a tough choice.
But like everything it has to come to an end. I am finally at ends to part with my XD 45 (no problems at all, less than 500 rounds fired through it, great gun but it's just not my style) and swapping it for a 1911. I was looking at either a Colt or a Springer (yes closely related to the XD, but like all 1911's extremely customizable). RI 1911 is out of the question, because for the price it would cost any FFL dealer here, it would be cheaper to buy a $500 1911 than pay the FFL fee's required in this state.
My second question and as always did a little bit of research, before asking everyone here is; what happens in 2011 with the new 1911(s) models? Will there be maybe a re-production of something classic? Or if there is any other information of what may happen in 2011?
All info is greatly appreciated and as always, thanks!
