Default My (used) new compact 1911

Just picked it up last week...she's a real cutie!
Already in LOVE with this special little 1911. I know some of the die hard 1911 loyalists out there will turn their noses up at a compact 1911 in 9mm but its really a fantastic gun. Anyone else own one? I carry a G26 as my daily CCW but looking forward to interchanging this from time to time....

Very nice piece. I love the springer 1911s, all sizes. I really need to get one of their compacts. I would really prefer a cco sized model if i had a choice.

Even if you're a die-in-the-wool glock fanboy you can not compare this 1911 to the G26.

Even with the 1 round advantage, the 1911 trigger....and the 1911 steel weight has to be the overriding plus to put this mouse gun over the top in your selection.

1911 pattern pistol FTW!

Come on SS215, fess-up!

Your poly puzzy G26 falls way short!

You should try a real MAN's version in .45 ACP!

That little 1911 will run laps around your glock.

VERY nice!
As a relatively new 1911 owner I am falling in love with them every time I see a new one. My next purchase will be a stainless Dan Wesson V-Bob with some sweet cherry coco grips. I do love my 5" stainless Sig GSR in .45 but I know once I lay my hands on a DW its a game changer
