Default Kimber for Dan Wesson

What should I do?! I really like my Kimber ProCarry II with the Crimson Trace but I have a chance to pick up a full sized Dan Wesson for $750. The DW is very good condition Stainless set up for match shooting with a few custom parts, Heavier recoil spring, sights etc. The rub is that right now money is tight and I'd have to sell the Kimber to get the Wesson. Should I go or should I stay? I am interested in your opinions. Thanks

Mark

Is there anything the matter with Kimber?
Why would you get rid of it to get a Dan Wesson?

Kimber could have the heavier recoil spring, different sights installed, and all the other bells and whistles. I have a soft spot for DW's. I like them and prefer them over Kimbers, but to get rid of a Kimber to get a DW, well........... If there was a way, I would say keep the Kimber and buy the DW, also. You know what you have now, and at that price for a DW, it sounds like it is used. And you don't know if it has been abused.
