Stopped at the LGS today. This usually leads to a few questions and a bunch of money being spent. Here's the gun vs. gun debate for you. Springfield Armory Mil-spec $625 vs. SA Range Officer $825. Is the Range Officer worth the extra $200? Both are US rollmarked, same grips and the RO has nicer sights, skeletonized hammer, longer trigger and a few other cosmetic differences. My current 1911 is a Rock Island that I have been happy with but will probably trade in towards a new one. Haven't even started talking money yet. Like I said, not the usual one brand vs. another question. Just trying to compare value in the same brand. His other 1911s are Colts and I don't think I want to go $1,000 + for my next gun.
