When it comes to Springfield, "Champion" is a size. It's the equivalent of "Commander" when it comes to Colt.

You might end up with worse trying do-it-yourself custom work on a 1911.

For the price, Norinco makes pretty darn good 1911's actually so I don't think anyone is gonna give you static there.

If the gun in the pic is one you're seriously considering, you might get a lot of lee-way since it has been bobbed. Just because a modification is appealing to the owner, does not mean it will increase the resale value. Kinda like putting a bunch of whiz bang crap on a Honda Accord. In the case of grinding the butt off a 1911, in reality it most likely decreased the real world resale value.

For example, you could buy a bone stock GI for 5 bills and add a thousand more in parts and work. If it is ever stolen, try to get your homeowner's or renter's insurance to cut you a check for $1500.00. I bet they won't.
