Default SA 1911 trp

Lgs has one for $1495.00. Just wanted to get some opinions on it. I am new to 1911's but this one just feels right. It's probably a little pricy for entry level. But I'd rather pay a little more if I'm getting better quality.

IMO, It is better to purchase one for a lifetime than to purchase 100 that don't quite "feel right".

That's what I'm thinking to. I will have to go over budget. But that's happened before. Probably have a little explaining to do at home.

At first, I thought $1495?? Then I looked, and that seems right in the normal range (I don't remember them running that much). I agree with the "get what you want the first time" sentiment.
Fair warning, You can't stop at just one.

Yeh all in the case seem to beckon me. This one just seemed to stand out.

It's a middle of the road price. Great guns though. SA has real good CS so I say go for it.

I'm going to stop back in tomorrow. I'm in Maryland so it will take 10 days. Sucks

I own a SA MC Operator and have a Professional on order ($2400.00). That's the civilian version of the FBI SRT/HRT sidearm. Only difference between the two is the serial number. Comes straight out of the custom shop. I love my springer! I don't go anywhere without it. And, yeah, overkill is spot on, once you start... 1911's are addicting.

I believe the correct term for the affliction is "nineteenelevenitis"

I think I've caught it and haven't got one yet.
