    Welcome to the forum! The next time you login, drop by our "Introductions" area and say "Hi"

    Now to your question:

    Compared to the 1911, there a very few mods you can do to your Kel-Tec. You may be able to upgrade the sights.

    Some day you'll look back at this and ask yourself why you didn't buy a 1911 to begin with. :)

    Dont feel bad I just bought my first 1911 a few months ago and have only done a couple mods to it. Replaced the full lenght guide rod for a GI set up, second mod was shooting the **** out of it and repeating.

    There are quite a few 1911 manufacturers who have very reasonable prices on their models.

    I've seen some 1911's in your price range.

    Take a look at the RIA or the Girsan
    (and get them with as much upgrades that you can afford).

    I owned one for a while and first thing I did was grip extension and Trigger shoe. It will make the heavy pull feel alot easier by widening the trigger to a little smaller than the trigger guard.

    For 400 you can get an amazing quality used gun. I strongly suggest you look at Sarco Inc... They provide used 1911 type guns with all new Springs and major functioning parts as week as refinish upon request. Super quality place

    If you are willing to drive a little way I'd be willing to take you to my local gun shops that are all restocked for the most part. Their ammo is still a but pricey though. I'm in north ga about an hour from the tn line
