    Smith and Wesson 1911PD, commander, scandium frame, .45acp for a Core 15 AR? I have no experience with Core ARs. I like my pistol but because of all the idiots in Washington I'm considering the trade. Thoughts?

    Keep the 1911 and buy a stripped lower. (<$100)

    Once you have the receiver, you have the gun and can build it over time.

    That was my initial thought for getting my first AR, I will have to luck out to find a stripped lower for under $100 anytime soon. I guess I don't NEED an AR that badly right now. It'll make the wife happy since she just bought me a under the bed safe that would've been useless had I made the trade.

    nice links, but they all appear to be out of stock? if you have always wanted an AR, then right now, it sounds like a good trade. 1911s are everywhere in the gun stores. ARs however, are not.

    You had no need for one "before"?
    Keep your 1911 ;)

    You are going to let others decide this for you? Might as well just post a poll then. Afterwards, you can run for office lol

    He did come asking advice.

    Besides all my free advice comes with this:

    I kept the smith. I'll wait till the craziness dies down and prices return to somewhat normal. Probably get one in the next 6 months or so. You know, I could tell it was the right move because I felt relief after I declined the trade! I like a rifle just as much as anyone but there's no substitute for a stout 1911.
