As suggested, a pre-owned may be an option. If so, I recommend looking for an early blued "GB" model. They are great firearms and will hold their value. We have had three of the early "GB's" and...

Hey Glasshartt, nice looking "GB". We have one in the "Blue" finish and have had great succes with it. The "GB" series seem to have a better history of accuracy, what say you?

:) Welcome to this great forum....

Great to have another in the group.... our newest was manufactured in 1950 and our oldest in 1912. 1911 is what everthing else is compared to.
