I'm trying to decide what my next gun should be, Something for concealed carry I was looking at revolvers first but I've got 1911 fever ^_^
That's my only concern is price it seems they are much pricier, I paid 800 for my full size 1911 and im still catching flack for it from my wife lol but I don't mind waiting while I save upaxxe55 said:check out the Officer's sized 1911's. 3.5" barreled IIRC.
my Springfield Armory Loaded Micro Compact 45 has a barrel length of 3". very compact and holds 6 rounds of 45ACP! has an aluminum frame and stainless steel slide. with the slim line grips, it's quite compact. shoots great and is suprisingly accurate for a short barreled pistol. downside, most of the compact 1911's can be a bit pricey in comparison to their full sized brothers. but are definately worth checking out. BTW, i paid quite a bit for mine, but after owning it and shooting it, i have no regrets in buying it. the only changes to mine after these pictures were taken was going to an extended slide release lever and a single sided thumb safety.
Always wanted one but that very true fact kept me from ityes most any brand that makes a compact 1911 is usually higher than the full sized models. why i don't know, they just are. MSRP on my SA was $1378, and i paid $1299 with tax! definately not cheap, but IMO, it was worth it.
Just myWell hell, the pic of your Defender started my obsession with the little Colt, may have to reevaluate now.
Who am I kidding, been looking at them so long at this point it would take a Defender horror story of epic proportions to dissuade me. It will be mine!Just myworth of experience.
Don't get me wrong, I love my Defender but now that I have retired it to Bar-B-Que status I now carry the Commander and I'm happy with the change.
You won't regret it!Who am I kidding, been looking at them so long at this point it would take a Defender horror story of epic proportions to dissuade me. It will be mine!
