    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"

    Just wanted to add my thoughts too! We have 50 of the 1911's/1911A1's with the oldest being a
    three digit manufactured in 1912 and the newest being a three digit LW manfactured in 1950. Of

    :) I know it is kind of late but congrats on getting the 1911. I have never fired a hollow
    point in any of our 1911 (A1's). We use standard 230 grain and that really seems to do what
    ever is needed. I...
