    Appears to be in like new condition. Previous owner said it had only 50 rounds through it. :D

    No, I have three others- Two Para Ordnance 1911's, a P13 and a P14, and one other SA 1911 Champion. I like the P13, but I think this one will be a favorite!

    Awesome purchase!

    I have never understood how someone could let a gun go with only a box of rounds through it but hey, his loss your gain. :)

    Thanks folks! I think the bottom SA Champion is going to have to go on the sale block. :(

    Range report-

    Gun shot very well! I put a box and a half through it with no issues at all. I had some old Blazer steel cases I shot up and a half box of some Winchester. It shoots a little to the left or it's just me getting used to the gun. Not bad foe he first time out (I thought).

    One thing that I noticed after cleaning it when I got home- The previous owner must have done a little dremmel work on the right hand side of the safety. (See picture). I saw it before but thought maybe it was a custom ambi or something. After cleaning it, the paint came off and it's bare steel on the end. I can't have that! Where's the best place to buy a replacement ambi-safety for it?
