Well guys, I'm still shopping but I've decided to keep my XDSC9 for now. I currently own an original press of Thriller, a promotion only copy which was owned by CBS. It is now on ebay. Those things are bringing $3-500 depending on condition. We'll see what this one sells for, I'm thinking it will be the start of my 1911 fund or I can see a lever action Marlin in my future...30-30 or should I go big bore?
This thread wont die. I know I'll have more questions as I search for the right 1911 for me.

Nope, not gonna do it..45 ammo is hard to find.....yes I will, i'll just buy bulk! Nah, no need for a 1911, my xd40 is awesome, don't want to part with it....yes, I should do this already!! nah,yep,nah,yep....

My head hurts.......

Gojubrian,you could always get a 1911 chambered in .40 cal.

spittinfire, good luck on your quest

spittinfire, reading through your threads I see that you were interested in a Para-USA firearm, but was disappointed when you found out that it had a double stack mag capacity.

I was out this weekend looking at 1911's, because I'm interested in one for competition shooting. Anyway, I saw a Para-Ordnance you might be interested in..."Para USA PXT LDA Single Stack Carry Option" available in .45ACP (and other calibers), 3",3.5",4.25" barrel, 3-dot sights in Stainless or Convert Black finishes. The price tag at this particular store was $989.

...just a suggestion...

Nighthawk makes an all stainless 1911, and it's a 4.25" model.

I have a 1911 and need no tools to strip it down. Had it about 40 years. Still shoots. Goes up in value

I'm definately going to keep looking, I've just decided to put it on hold for a little while. Thanks for the tip on the para, I'll have to check it out.
